DCNS Commissions Shore Integration Facility for Brazilís Submarine Combat Systems

 

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Paris, Ile de France, France, 2014/02/07 - DCNS has commissioned its new shore-based integration facility for the combat systems of the Brazilian Navyís next-generation conventional-propulsion submarines (SSKs) - DCNSgroup.com.

This dedicated facility at the French defence procurement agencyís Saint-Mandrier-sur-Mer centre near Toulon will be used to test these sophisticated data processing systems before they are installed on board the submarines. The combat system is the submarineís central nervous system, helping to analyse the theatre of operations and deploy the boatís weapon systems.

The completion of this innovative facility is testimony to the strong and continuing cooperation between DCNS and the Brazilian Navy under a technology transfer agreement spanning submarine design, development and construction.

The equipment making up the combat systems of the first Scorpeneģ SSKs will now be integrated and interfaced with the shore integration facility in a technical configuration similar to the one planned for the submarines themselves.

Over the next two years, joint DCNS/Brazilian Navy teams will test combat systems for Brazilís Scorpeneģ SSKs while training Brazilian officers and crew in accordance with the technology transfer agreement. All combat system capabilities will be thoroughly examined.

Once a system has been tested in France, its components will be sent to Brazil for integration with a submarine under construction at the ItaguaŪ shipyard near Rio de Janeiro.

Joint testing by DCNS/Brazilian Navy teams of each combat system on this shore integration facility before integration with the host submarine will provide significant time savings, helping to ensure that each boat is completed on schedule.

Between now and late 2015, some 20 Brazilians will receive training in combat system design and integration. The know-how made available under this technology transfer agreement will significantly strengthen the Brazilian Navyís expertise in this demanding area.

The Brazilian submarine programme calls for the design and construction of four Scorpeneģ SSKs along with the design and construction of essential shore-based infrastructure. DCNS (dcnsgroup.com) is contributing its expertise in the design definition of the submarinesí home base and a shipyard for their construction and maintenance. DCNS is also providing technical assistance with the design of the non-nuclear part of the countryís first nuclear-powered submarine. The programme comes under a bilateral agreement coordinated by the French defence ministryís defence procurement agency (DGA).

The four Scorpeneģ submarines meet the Brazilian Navyís detailed specifications and are perfectly tailored to the protection and defence of Brazilís 8,500-kilometre coastline. These versatile vessels are designed for a full range of missions including anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare, special operations and intelligence gathering.
