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.

Chile was the first country to retain Scorpene at the very end of 1997. Less than 10 years later, the navy was equipped with two customised ships boasting the very latest technological breakthroughs as well as outstanding safety features. This project is a testimony of the DCNS commitment for long-term cooperation with local contractors, in Chile and throughout South America.

The DCNS stand showcases:

• DCNS expertise in submarine design and construction, through the Scorpene medium-size submarines. Already chosen by the Chilean Navy and other first rank navies, Scorpene submarines represents 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. Excellent endurance makes the Scorpene one of the few medium-displacement designs suitable for extended ocean patrol duties. The modular design can also be readily tailored to each customer’s specific mission profiles and other requirements.
• The Andrasta, a compact submarine designed to operate in coastal waters, a theatre of growing importance to all maritime nations. Being also a fearsome adversary in deep water, Andrasta combines a state-of-the-art design with stealth, agility and power. A direct descendant of the Scorpene, the Andrasta is remarkably effective in any underwater role that a client navy may wish to assign to it.
• Subtics®, which combines operational efficiency, high-performance sensors and long-range weapons. The system can be readily added to any new-build programme or integrated as part of a refit. It has been selected by several navies for Scorpene and Agosta 90B submarines, as well as for modernisation programmes for submarines already in service.
• The projection and command ship or Mistral LHD is a multipurpose surface vessel designed to cover a broad spectrum of missions, including amphibious operations, crisis management, airborne operations, operational command, operational transport, healthcare support, humanitarian operations and freight transport. The operational capability and interoperability of the Mistral LHD were demonstrated in Operation Baliste off Lebanon and on sea trials with the US Navy (involving the LCAC and Super Stallion).
• 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 named L’Adroit is already in service with 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. L’Adroit currently operates a UAV and will performe trials and experimentations with this new kind of asset on board a naval vessel during the next monthes. As well, studies are currently achieved at DCNS to integrate stand off unmanned MCM systems on board The Gowind® OPV. 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.

• Polaris is the latest member of the DCNS Combat Systems family. It is a sea-proven compact solution designed to fulfill Navies and Coast Guards’ needs for surveillance, littoral zone protection and Economical Exclusive Zone protection missions. POLARIS offers scalable functionalities that are built for maritime situation awareness, interoperability and surface warfare management.The functional core is a robust, optimized and capable tactical system, which takes benefit of DCNS Combat Systems already in service.

Last but not least, DCNS offers services for every naval need, including through-life support, modernisation and training. Through agreements and partnerships with local shipyards and contractors like ASMAR and SISDEF, DCNS offers its expertise to client navies to meet technical and logistic support challenges.

DCNS is also at the forefront of developments in marine renewable energies, an extremely promising new business sector. The Group is the only manufacturer in the world to have invested in all of the sector’s four main technologies: marine turbines, floating and wind turbines (wave energy).
