Partnership to provide next generation naval defence solutions

French naval defence and energy group, DCNS has selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to manage the design, engineering, construction and lifecycle of its naval defence products, from new generation submarines to frigates, patrol vessels, aircraft carriers and landing platform docks (LPDs).

The design and engineering of high-performing naval defence solutions requires a seamless integration of complex systems and infrastructure such as nuclear and conventional propulsion systems, radars, missiles and communications materials. End-users in all disciplines must rely on access to accurate, advanced and up-to-date information to make informed decisions.

Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault Systèmes, said: “The marine and offshore industry at large is going through a new dynamic of innovation as the open seas are becoming more strategic than ever. The DCNS decision to adopt the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to create a virtual twin of their products across all lifecycles will set a new level of performance in the naval sector.”

DCNS manages extreme complexity and high-level integration to provide its clients, industrial systems and equipment partners, and supply chain with the most modern cooperation tools and digital interface. Adopting marine and offshore industry solution experiences based on one common 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the major catalyst to increase capacity and flexibility as well as the most competitive and efficient solutions.
