DCNS will showcase a number of naval defence systems at the IndoDefense 2014 show in Jakarta, Indonesia this week.

Among them is the Scorpene 1000: a compact submarine specially designed to operate in coastal waters, a theatre of growing importance to all maritime nations. Being also a fearsome adversary in deep water, Scorpene 1000 combines a state-of-the-art design with stealth, agility and power. It is remarkably effective in any underwater role that a client navy may wish to assign to it.

And the SUBTICS, a combat management system that can be installed on any type of submarine. It 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 Gowind 2500 is also on display. It is a multi-mission corvette (100 metres, over 2,000 tonnes). A fully militarised platform, she 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.
