At the centre of the focus, the Scorpene submarine which Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) is producing under ToT from DCNS will be displayed. MDL has successfully absorbed the TOTs for hull manufacturing. The hulls of the 6 submarines are completed. The outfitting of these hull sections is now progressing as per schedule. The First of Class P75 built in MDL should be ready to start Harbour tests and sea trials as per schedule indicated by MDL. The first Scorpene submarine is to be commissioned in 2015. 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, said Bernard Buisson, Managing Director of DCNS India. “DCNS India set up a dedicated indigenisation programme as part of the transfer of technology (ToT) agreement with Indian naval shipbuilder Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL). It received the prestigious ‘Excellence in Indigenous Technology’ award at Aerospace and Defence Awards 2013”.

DCNS ( is truly a unique player in naval systems. The Group is the only company developing such a range of solutions with OPVs to CVN and from SSKs to SSBNs and associated services.

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 Barracuda SSN:
A state of the art nuclear submarine for the French Navy dedicated to deal with an ever-growing array of challenges. The Barracuda is designed to undertake blue-water missions anywhere in the world; and to do so either alone or as part of a naval force. The first-of-class SSN Suffren is scheduled to start sea trials early 2016. Six Barracudas will replace the six Rubis/Améthyste-class boats currently in service.

A wide range of expertise in surface ships

FREMM frigates are among the most technologically advanced surface combatants available on the market.

Five frigates are currently under construction in Lorient shipyard (Brittany). FREMM frigate Normandie, the follow-on ship was launched at the end of last year. Several sea trials of the ship’s propulsion and navigation systems were performed with the end-user and the combat system sea trials are currently under way.

The BRAVE support vessel is DCNS’s response to emerging logistic support needs identified by many navies. The ship is ideal for the underway replenishment of all types of products (dry cargo, fuel & other liquids and munitions), to provide logistic support for naval forces and to store and deliver all types of payloads, including dangerous substances.

• The Mistral-Class LHD:
