Held in Sydney’s International Convention Centre, Indo Pacific is one of the world’s leading defence events and is the ideal opportunity for JFD Australia, the world’s leading company in submarine rescue, to display its range of safe, sovereign underwater combat systems and services to key decision-makers from around the world.

JFD holds contracts with some 80 nations and 33 navies around the globe. In Australia, it employs nearly 100 people at its headquarters in Western Australia, where it maintains the safe, trusted and proven submarine rescue service to the Royal Australian Navy, and at two advanced production centres in New South Wales.

Coinciding with Indo Pacific 2022 is the IMC 2022 International Maritime Conference.

The conference program features discussions about the latest advancements in both the defence and commercial maritime areas.

Mr Bernard Phelps from Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) will be presenting ‘Defence-industry collaboration for Australian collapse testing project’ – a project in partnership with JFD Australia.

JFD Australia was awarded the contract to build and pressure test three large ring-stiffened cylinders to validate their analytical and numerical methods for modelling of pressure hull collapse.


Started in October 2019, the hull external pressure testing project involves the design, construction, measurement, monitoring, testing to collapse, and disposal of the three cylinders.

All the items including the test cylinders, end‐closures, and transport items will be constructed in Australia.

The presentation will form part of the conference’s Submarine Technology session on Thursday 12th May – for further details about the program, please click here.
