DCN en Euronaval 2006
El grupo DCN presentará sus capacidades e innovaciones en la vigésima edición del salón internacional Euronaval, que se celebra en Le Bourget.
24/10/2006 As prime contractor for value-adding naval defence systems, DCN is successfully serving naval forces today and developing the solutions that they will require tomorrow. The company will be presenting some of its major successes on current programmes including the Mistral-class projection and command vessel (BPC), the Horizon frigates, nuclear-powered ballistic-missile submarines (SSBNs) and conventional Scorpene conventional submarines as well as future programmes such as the FREMM multimission frigates, the Barracuda submarine programme and the second aircraft carrier for the French Navy.
To succeed on today's programmes, DCN is delivering effective responses to the digitisation of naval and maritime operations, and developing critical equipment and all-inclusive support service solutions to meet the specific needs of navies and maritime forces.
For DCN, preparing for the future means investing in research and development to drive innovation. This year, the company has designed future vessels such as the BPC 140 and 160, the Gowind® corvettes and the Marlin conventionally powered submarine, which will enter service with navies around the world in the coming years. The company has also developed the Swordship and SMX-23 concept ships as experimental technology platforms for future generations of surface combattants and submarines.
Preparing for the future also involves driving consolidation in the French naval defence sector through closer ties between DCN and Thales Naval France.
DCN is also preparing for the future by playing a role in the consolidation of the European naval defence sector, in particular through major industrial cooperation programmes such as FREMM, Scorpene and the two aircraft carriers, conducted with national and European partners.
