Sea Power Centre, Australia
The Sea Power Centre – Australia (SPC–A) was established in the early 1990s to act as an autonomous research centre in order to foster and encourage development of maritime strategic thought by providing intellectual rigour to the public debate on maritime strategy and other maritime issues.
It began as the Maritime Studies Project in April 1990, evolving into the Maritime Studies Program in mid-1991. In January 2000 it became a directorate in the Navy Strategic Policy and Futures Branch in Navy Headquarters, and was renamed the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Sea Power Centre. The title was amended to the Sea Power Centre – Australia (SPC–A) in late 2002, and as of July 2010, it is part of the Capability Plans and Engagement Branch of Navy Strategic Command.
