Nice to hear the PM this morning announce that the new Frigates will be fitted with Aegis combat systems and SAAB management interfaces for the non Aegis components.
He also confirmed that the AWDs will be upgraded to BMD as per the Defence White Paper and that the future frigates may/will also be BMD capable.

He confirmed interoperability with the US and regional allies is paramount which is PM speak confirming CEC.

The announcements are not only in response to DPRK but also to give industry certainty particularly Saab Australia and CEA Technology.

The link provides some background and was published a day before the announcement. It suggests that the choice for combat management system (CMS) lay between Lockmarts Aegis and SAAB's 9LV. It also surmises that a third path may be to create an hybrid system combining the best of both.
As it has turned out, that's exactly the choice made.
I believe the deciding factor for Aegis was CEC (cooperative engagement capability) which will,enable a high quality and seamless tactical and strategic picture to be compiled between the RANs 12 escorts and those Of our Aegis fitted regional allies, US, ROK and Japan, their air assets such as Growler, AWACS, MPA and Romeo

This is a huge capability improvement for the RAN

Some models of the three contenders were on display at Pacific 2017 in Sydney.

Although the RFI proposals remain secret and can't be released until after a winner is declared one can assume that the models represent a fair view of the ships on offer.
Navantia offer 48 Mk41 cells, the others 32 so this could be a disadvantage. Fincantieri certainly have an eye to design and make the CEAFAR mast look almost likeable and the T26, IMHO, is the easiest on the eye.

At the bottom of the page is a Fassmer OPV model for the SEA 1180 proposal with the winner announced in the next month or so and construction to start next year. Again, IMHO, this seems the best value of money of the three proposals.

At least this time BAE Systems Australia is working hard to up it's game, and bringing the benefits to industry and workforce in regards to the T26 programme into play. Though will commonality favour Navantia.
