A world leader in naval defence, and an innovator in the energy sector, DCNS delivers innovative solutions from integrated warships to strategic systems, equipment, services. As a naval prime contractor, shipbuilder and systems integrator, DCNS combines resources and expertise spanning the naval defence value chain and entire system lifecycles. With state-of-the-art references in French and allied navies.

DCNS proposes to its customers “Combat Proven” ships with high performances for meeting tomorrow’s challenges. The Group’s vessels keep on proving their operational capabilities all over the world, deployed on expeditionary missions by French forces and on allied exercises, maritime security and humanitarian operations.

Drawing from its rich and long-standing experience, DCNS intends to develop naval engineering and industrial partnerships in Canada. In particular, the Group proposes its combat system integration capabilities and warship design expertise for the Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC). The FREMM frigate design, a sea-proven fully integrated solution, adapted to Canadian requirements, will be the basis of DCNS’s efforts to share its unique expertise with Canadian partners. The Group has already been qualified as both Combat System Integrator and Warship Designer.

Additionally, DCNS intends to participate in the AJISS project for the in-service support of future Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) and the Joint Support Ships (JSS).

The Group has a long tradition of technology transfer and has consistently demonstrated that it can be a key partner for customer navies and industries to expand their capabilities.

The FREMM multi-mission frigate combines the latest technologies developed by DCNS. Considered as a world leader in her class, the FREMM is a versatile vessel able to respond to any type of missions encompassing all warfare domains. DCNS is the prime contractor of the FREMM programme, the largest European naval defence programme.

The SETIS integrated combat management system, developed for the needs of Navies ensuring naval supremacy missions, already equips the multi-mission FREMM frigates and will be integrated on board corvettes as well.
