DCNS will present some of the Group’s latest technologies. A consistent innovator thanks to its R&D and engineering programmes, the Group is constantly introducing new products and services in response to customers’ emerging and anticipated needs.

DCNS innovations, products and studies on show at UDT include:

• Scorpene Family SSKs: Already chosen by the Chilean, Royal Malaysian, Indian and Brazilian Navies, Scorpene submarines represent the state-of-the-art in submarine design and construction and benefits from the latest technologies, particularly as regards acoustic discretion and combat system performance. Scorpene is presented with its optional MESMA© AIP section.

• The MESMA® (Air Independent Propulsion system) is an electrical energy production module designed specifically for conventional submarines. As well as supplying electricity, it recharges 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 MESMA® module can be considered as a new-build option or installed during an upgrade. MESMA® is already in-service.

• SUBTICS® combat system 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 (MFCC) 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.

• 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, Andrasta is remarkably effective in any underwater role that a client navy may wish to assign to it.

• F21, the new-generation heavyweight torpedo. DCNS has been awarded a contract for the development and production F21 torpedoes for the French Navy. This torpedo is designed to enable submarines to knock out enemy surface combatants and submarines. The F21, taking advantage of the most advanced innovative technologies in development for heavy-weight torpedoes, is able to reach a maximum speed superior to 50 kts and has got a range of more than 50 km. Two navies have already ordered F21 torpedoes for a total number exceeding 100 units. Thanks to the Migal© interface module, F21 torpedo can be fired from every type of submarines.

• MU90 lightweight torpedo: The MU90 is the sole new lightweight torpedo in the world. Designed and built with the most advanced technologies, the MU90 torpedo is capable to counter any type of submarine even acoustically coated, deep diving, fast evasive, deploying anti-torpedo effectors or bottomed in littoral areas. The MU90 torpedo is in sevice in Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and Poland.

• CONTRALTO® / CANTO®, the new-generation torpedo defence system, has been especially designed in order to face the old generation of torpedoes and the appearance of new advanced torpedoes as well. Based on the concept of dilution/confusion, CONTRALTO® / CANTO® is available for surface vessel and submarine. It can be readily incorporated into new-build designs or added to existing ships as part of a refit or modernisation programme. DCNS is delivering the French navy and the brazialian navy as well.

DCNS ( will show the following conferences:

• Day 1 SMX26 (Mrs Marie Nicod). DCNS has designed a new concept of a submarine dedicated to operations in extreme shallow waters, but large enough to provide a complete solution for the of-the-moment littoral deployment. SMX-26 is a 1,000 tons surface displacement submarine designed to keep watch and fight safely in extreme shallow waters. It is the first submarine designed to operate easily whilst submerged in such areas, with full capability.

• Day 2 Overview of Lithium Based Chemistry Suitable for Underwater Weapons (Ludovic Madier). Energy sources are a key issue concerning the development of new underwater electrical vehicles and lithium based chemistry is one of the most promising candidates.

• Day 3 OPV as a Potential Mine Counter Measures Mother Ship (Loïc Tacher). Future mine countermeasures sensors and effectors will be carried by wireless unmanned vehicles, launched from ashore or mother-ships. That would allow a reduction of military and anti-mine requirements on potential MCM mother-ships. This conference discusses to what extent an offshore patrol vessel (OPV) could carry and operate MCM unmanned systems, and presents a potential solution.
