DCNS at Defexpo India 2012 from 29 March to 1 April – (Hall 12, booth 12.2k).

At the centre of the focus, the Scorpene submarine which Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) is producing under ToT from DCNS will be displayed. The first Scorpene submarine is to be launched at the end of 2013 and commissioned in 2015. Recently, DCNS India has delivered the first locally produced Scorpene submarines equipment to Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) for the P75 Scorpene submarines, thus illustrating DCNS’s commitment to the indigenization. At Defexpo, DCNS local presence will be strong with DCNS India representatives explaining the successful indigenization for the P75 program in India.

“Defexpo is a very important platform for DCNS to showcase the services we can provide to our Customers through genuine transfer of technology. We have a deep industrial expertise, from the design to the in-service support.” said Bernard Buisson, Managing Director of DCNS India. “We remain fully committed to bring to the Indian government and our partners our innovative and proven technologies.”

The DCNS booth will showcase:

• The Scorpene Family SSKs
Already chosen by the Chilean, Royal Malaysian, Indian and Brazilian Navies Scorpene-Family submarines 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 Defexpo, the Scorpene is presented with its SUBTICS® combat system and its optional MESMA AIP section.

SUBTICS® combines long-range capabilities in all navigation conditions with powerful weapons (torpedoes, anti-ship missile, counter-measures, land-attack capability). As a fully-integrated system, all functions are operated from Multifunction Common Consoles and its open architecture and modularity guarantee that the system can be adapted to every type of submarines and configured according to operational requirements. It can also be upgraded during its lifetime to fulfil new missions and keep its operational superiority.
The MESMA (Autonomous Submarine Energy Module) 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 meters’ MESMA module can be considered as a new-build option or installed during an upgrade.

• The Barracuda SSN
DCNS is drawing on 50 years’ experience as a designer and builder of nuclear-powered submarines to develop this new-generation, combining the latest advances in acoustic discretion and propulsion. The Barracuda SSN is designed for the French Navy to undertake blue-water missions anywhere in the world; and to do so either alone or as part of a naval force. In a word, it will be the centrepiece of the military means: an attack submarine capable of massive deep strike operations, which can also control vast maritime domains or deploy as part of a coalition force. Highly versatile, Barracuda will be assigned strategic defence missions, including the protection of LHDs and aircrafts carriers. The first-of-class SSN Le Suffren is scheduled to enter service in 2017. Between 2017 and 2027 six Barracudas will replace the six Rubis/Améthyste-class boats currently in service.

• The Contralto-S® torpedo countermeasures suite
The Contralto-S® torpedo countermeasures suite for submarines is designed to defeat latest-generation torpedoes. It uses acoustic decoys and is based on the ‘confusion/dilution’ principle. Contralto-S® is designed for all types of submarines (i.e. SSKs, SSNs and SSBNs) and can be incorporated into new-build designs or added to existing boats as part of a refit or modernisation programme. Customers to date include the French Navy’s SSBN and SSN fleets under the Nemesis programme and the Brazilian Navy for its new class of SSKs.

• The Gowind® OPV
The Gowind® OPV is designed to meet the operational needs of a large number of navies focusing on coastal missions/homeland security. With a length overall of 87 metres and 1,000 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. The Gowind OPV L’Adroit has been manufactured in less than two years; it is used by the French Navy since October 2011.

• The Mistral-Class LHD
With a length of 199 metres and a displacement of 21,500 tonnes, a Mistral-Class LHD offers a global projection capability for troops and materiel. Mistral-Class LHD also offers ample capacity as hospital ships or for large-scale humanitarian missions. The design features electric propulsion using azimuth pods and high-level automation compatible with a complement of just 170. A high-performance communications suite, a 3D surveillance radar and a Senit 9 combat management system (CMS) make the type ideal as a naval force command vessel. For the record, the third Mistral-Class for the French Navy was delivered ahead of schedule and the construction of the first Mistral-Class LHD for the Russian Navy has started.

• The PA2 Aircraft Carrier
After developing and building the CVN Charles de Gaulle, DCNS now designed a next-generation aircraft carrier offering increased power projection capabilities, optimized maintainability and improved at-sea availability. The PA2 is a 285 metres, 60,000 tonnes, aircraft carrier featuring a 13,400 m2 flying deck. The PA2 is designed to offer improved maintainability and at-sea availability thanks to lessons learned through fleet-wide through-life support. Special attention has been be paid to living conditions for a reduced crew of 900 (air wing and command team). The ship will accommodate up to 1,690 passengers.

The PA2 capabilities include air/sea control over a wide area, strike attacks against land and maritime targets along with missions as part of a carrier group or in cooperation with allied forces. On operational deployments with an air wing of 40 aircraft, the PA2 will be able to carry out up to 75 air missions per day for extended periods.

• Comprehensive services solutions
DCNS provides a wide range of support services during the entire lifecycle of 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 modernization and life extension programs 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. This global offer is designed to help navies to maintain and expand their self-sufficiency within technology transfer programs.
