DCNS is a major player in the European and world markets for value-added naval defence systems. As a naval prime contractor, shipbuilder and systems integrator, DCNS combines resources and expertise spanning the naval defence value chain and entire system lifecycles. DCNS delivers innovative solutions from integrated warships to strategic systems, equipment, services and new energy solutions.

The DCNS stand showcases:

Surface combatants
The FREMM multimission frigates programme combines the latest technologies developed by the DCNS group. These technological and engineering advances make the FREMM frigates world leaders in their class. France’s total order is 11 vessels and the delivery is scheduled from 2012 to 2022. In addition, one FREMM frigate is currently under construction for Morocco.

The innovative Gowind® vessels, a new family of two type vessels designed by DCNS:

• The Gowind® OPV is designed to meet the operational needs of a large number of navies focusing on coastal missions/homeland security. A first ship is already used by the French Navy since October 2011. With a length overall of 87 metres and 1,400 tonnes displacement, the Gowind OPV will offer three weeks’ blue-water endurance, a range of 8,000 nautical miles and a top speed of 21 knots.

• Bigger, Gowind® Combat is a multi-mission corvette (100 metres, 2,400 tonnes). She has a comprehensive Combat System for full-scale multi-threat missions, including a complete ASW, AAW, and ASuW suites.

DCNS is drawing on 100 years’ experience as a designer and builder of diesel-powered submarines, over 50 years’ experience in nuclear powered subs, combining the latest advances in acoustic discretion and propulsion.

The Scorpene medium-size submarines, already chosen by the Chilean, Royal Malaysian, Indian and Brazilian Navies, represent the state-of-the-art in submarine design and construction and benefits from the latest technologies developed for nuclear-powered classes operated by the French Navy, particularly as regards acoustic discretion and combat system performance. At PACIFIC, the Scorpene is presented with the MESMA AIP (Autonomous Submarine Energy Module). This is an electrical energy production module designed specifically for conventional submarines. As well as supplying electricity to the vessel and to the propulsion system, it can also be used to recharge the batteries without the need to surface. Together with a MESMA section, a Scorpene will be able to carry out extended missions with an over 3 weeks submerged endurance. The 10 metres MESMA module can be considered as a new-build option or installed during a refit.

The Andrasta, a compact submarine designed to operate in coastal waters, a theatre of growing importance to all maritime nations. Being, Andrasta combines a state-of-the-art design with stealth, agility and power. A direct descendant of the Scorpene, the Andrasta is remarkably effective and a fearsome adversary in deep water, thanks to its SUBTICS® combat system.

The Contralto-V® torpedo countermeasures, a system for surface combatants designed to counter latest-generation torpedoes. Like Contralto-S®, it uses acoustic decoys and is based on the ‘confusion/dilution’ principle. The operational ‘confusion/dilution’ principle represents the state of the art in torpedo countermeasures. Contralto-V® saturates an in-coming torpedo’s processors by creating and constantly renewing dozens of ephemeral acoustic targets, the only viable solution against latest-generation torpedoes.

The F21 heavyweight torpedo will replace the French Navy’s current-generation F17 mod2 torpedo carried by its SSBN fleet and has also been selected for the next-generation Barracuda-type SSN fleet. The F21 is being developed in response to new and emerging operational challenges to offer the host submarine unrivalled dominance. Its discretion, range and fire power will give it an unrivalled tactical advantage over all adversaries. The new torpedo is designed to knock out enemy surface vessels and submarines.

Last but not least, DCNS ( offers a wide range of support services during the entire lifecycle of both surface ships and submarines. These services stretch from the simplest order of spare parts to the through-life support of complete fleet. On top of current support operations, DCNS can carry out modernisation and life extension programmes to maintain fleet availability at optimal cost. DCNS also offers a complete set of courses and solutions designed to train all levels of naval and industrial personnel, from the start of a project through decommissioning and/or dismantling. Finally, DCNS proposes services in naval bases and shipyards from the Design, Engineering, Construction, Operation to the maintenance of these infrastructures. This global offer is designed to help navies to maintain and expand their self-sufficiency within technology transfer programmes.
