DCNS is a major player in the European and world markets for value-added naval defence systems. 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.

At IMDEX, the DCNS stand showcases:

• The SMX-25 known as “the lightning prowler”, and the ADVANSEA, an all-electric surface ship (propulsion and weapons). Introduced for the first time in Asia, these concepts demonstrate the Group’s capacity for innovation and anticipation: key element to bring Customer value and to conquer tomorrow’s markets.

• The innovative Gowind® vessels, a new family of ocean-capable vessels designed by DCNS for all littoral and sea operations, are exceptional tools able to fulfil missions ranging from anti-piracy up to sea control and denial.

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 is in construction in France and will be delivered later this year. 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.

Bigger, the Gowind® Combat is a multi-mission corvette (100 metres, 2,000 tonnes). It has a comprehensive Mission Management System for full-scale multi-threat missions, including a complete ASW suite with towed array sonar and improved stealth and survivability.

• The Scorpene Family submarines, already chosen by the Chilean, Malaysian, Indian and Brazilian Navies, represent the state-of-the-art in submarine design and construction. They benefit from the latest technologies developed for nuclear-powered classes operated by the French Navy, particularly as regard 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, Andrasta is remarkably effective in any underwater role that a client navy may wish to assign to it.

• DCNS will also present its Underwater Weapons Solutions, including, Contralto, the anti-torpedo countermeasure system (for submarine and surface ship), developed to face latest generation’s torpedoes.

• Sirehna, a DCNS centre of excellence, will represent the Group’s expertise in hydrodynamics, in various domains such as dynamic positioning, ship motion monitoring and stabilization systems and USV kits.

• 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 modernisation and life extension programmes 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 programmes.

From Singapore, DCNS serves south east-Asia in these areas through its subsidiary DCNS Far East since 2005.

Last but not least, on the 20th of May, DCNS will participate to the Naval Technology Seminar with two presentations:

• DRONE and Ship: Encounter of a new kind. Mr Alain Bovis, DCNS Director of Science and Technology, CEO of Sirehna (1230hr, Track 2, Function Room 2).

• The SMX-25 submarine – The lightning prowler. Mr Nicolas Piganeau, DCNS Naval Architect (1330hr, Track 1, Conference Hall).
