DCNS To Unveil New Future Aircraft Carrier Design At Defexpo 2014

DCNS will present a future Aircraft Carrier design at this years DEFEXPO in New Delhi, India. 

The Evolved Aircraft Carrier (DEAC) is based on French Navy CVN Charles de Gaulle’s combat proven design and aviation system and is compatible with all CTOL aircrafts (including Airborne Early Warning aircraft) and features the latest technologies including cutting-edge Combat System (SETIS®), UAV integration, advanced conventional propulsion and state-of-the-art platform stabilisation system (SATRAP/COGITE). 

In addition to the design, DCNS offers customised transfer of technology, material packages, dedicated infrastructures development (i.e. naval base and construction/maintenance shipyard) as well as life support solutions.

DCNS will also showcase its Scorpene submarine in addition to the Mistral-Class LHD, the FREMM frigates, BRAVE support vessel and a nuclear submarine, Barracuda SSN at the Defexpo 2014. 

“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”.

At the exhibit, the company has a nuclear submarine, Barracuda SSN, which is designed to undertake blue-water missions anywhere in the world. 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 with the French Navy.

DCNS is showcasing the new-generation torpedo defence system, CONTRALTO/ CANTO, available for surface vessel and submarine. It can be readily incorporated into new-build designs or added to existing ships as part of a refit or modernisation programme.
