When the Royal Australian Navy required decision-support in 2010 for the largest acquisition program in the history of the Defence Force, the United States Navy recommended SPA. As a trusted partner to the United States Navy for nearly 50 years, the US Navy turned to us to guide one of their closest allies. We have supported the Royal Australian Navy ever since.
At SPA, we recognise the significance of the United States’ 100 years of mateship with Australia. We have evolved our support across the Australian Defence Force to pair our growing in-country capability with the unique expertise and tools resident at our United States SPA Headquarters. SPA Australia is growing our team of Australian employees with backgrounds in science, engineering, business, and more, and providing professional development and training opportunities to develop a domestic analytic capability in Australia. We are a proud employer of Australian Defence Force veterans and value the unique experience and expertise they provide. Our domestic presence and ability to leverage 50 years of experience and tools from our US headquarters ensures we can continue to provide the trusted analytic services needed to serve the Australian Defence Force.
We conduct operational analysis for both surface and subsurface capabilities, including major strategic programs.
