Naval Group is a world leader in naval defence and has been the main provider and partner of the French Navy for over four centuries. Naval Group is one of the rare players in the naval industry to have the capacity to design, build, service and upgrade surface combatants as well as submarines, but also naval infrastructures and naval bases. It is one of the few manufacturers in the world to design a ship as a whole, including the platform, the combat system and the integration of equipment, in order to optimize its performances.

Naval Group is an international and global player that strengthens its footprint worldwide through its presence on 4 continents and in 18 countries to ensure a sustainable presence close to its clients. Naval Group is significantly increasing its multi-domestic presence in Peru and Latin America to strengthen its long-lasting cooperation with the navies in the region.

Naval Group is currently competing in Peru for the naval projects developed by the Marina de Guerra del Peru offering state of the art vessels as well as ambitious and tailor-made transfers of technology that will benefit to the entire naval and maritime Peruvian industries. Naval Group has a unique experience of successful transfers of technology for the construction of both surface ships and submarines, but also of naval facilities.

Egypt launched its first Gowind built in Egypt in September 2018 and Brazil launched its first Brazilian built Scorpene submarine in December 2018, while India already operates its own submarines at sea. Transfer of technology has also been performed –or is currently on track- in many countries.

In South America, Naval group has recently reinforced its presence through two major contracts with Chile and Brazil, thanks to the Scorpene class submarine, but also in Argentina with a contract to provide 4 offshore patrol vessels (OPV) benefiting from the Gowind class design and technology.

Naval Group is also proud of its successes in the combat management system (CMS) retrofits on U209 submarines in the region which demonstrates its ability to work closely with the navies and local industrial partners, even on submarines not of its own design.

Naval Group presents its leading technologies at SITDEF 2019

Naval Group is a naval systems provider and integrator, one of the few companies in the world with the ability to deliver complete warships with their combat systems and all the critical equipment necessary to engage naval power in a theatre of operations. It is involved at every stage in the product life cycle.

The stand on SITDEF 2019 will reflect this comprehensive offer with a focus on surface ships and innovative solutions.

Gowind: a sea-proven international success for the “buque multirole” program

Gowind is the multimission frigate proposed to Peru for the “buque multirole”. Gowind is Naval Group’s response to 21st century defence and security challenges. The platform combines high survivability characteristics with outstanding anti-air (AAW), anti-surface (ASuW) and anti-submarine (ASW) warfare performances thanks to the MU90 and to the CANTO-V.

The Gowind is operated with the SETIS. This state-of-the-art combat is combat-proven on the French Navy’s FREMM frigates and interoperable with NATO systems. It provides the operator with the best management and decision-making aids, ensuring the Gowind supremacy over conventional and asymmetric threats.

Nine of the ten Gowind vessels contracted are being built with foreign partners in Malaysia and Egypt. The first Gowind built in Egypt was launched on September 6, 2018.

Scorpene: combat-proven oceanic submarines for the replacement of the Peruvian fleet

Scorpène is the conventional submarine proposed to Peru for its fleet replacement. Naval Group combines unique platform and combat system skills to provide operational superiority and safety benefiting from the French Navy legacy. Naval Group contributes to strengthening the sovereignty of its customers through long-term partnerships, industrial cooperation and through-life support services, as proven by its strong credentials.

Scorpène is ideally suited for action and operational effectiveness. Robust and enduring, it’s an ocean-going submarine also designed for shallow waters operations. Multipurpose, it fulfils the entire scope of missions such as Anti-Surface and Anti-Submarine Warfare, special operations, offensive minelaying and intelligence gathering.

Standing as the latest generation of combat system, Subtics addresses the growing challenges of modern submarines missions in blue and shallow waters such as Anti-Surface and Anti-Submarine Warfare, intelligence gathering, land-attack or deep strike.

Highly modular and scalable, Subtics can be integrated either on new platforms or as part of modernisation programmes for existing submarines.


Naval Group is the European leader in naval defence. As an international high-tech company, Naval Group uses its extraordinary know-how, unique industrial resources and capacity to arrange innovative strategic partnerships to meet its customers’ requirements. The group designs, builds and supports submarines and surface ships. It also supplies services to shipyards and naval bases.

STOCKHOLM --- From 13th to 15th May 2019, Naval Group participates to UDT 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden, to present its underwater systems.

Come and meet us at booth # A4!

Presenting underwater systems

During UDT 2019, Naval Group will showcase many of its innovative underwater vessels and solutions, developed through its close relationship with the French Navy.

-- SMX 31: “the electric”
SMX 31 is a showcase of developments Naval Group is studying for the next generation submarine. This resolutely digital submarine, designed to operate in a highly demanding environment, will carry out information gathering missions and will be more than ever capable of forceful actions that will result, either by using adapted weapons, or by "special" action modes (disruptive action modes adapted to different situations).

SMX 31 is fitted with significantly increased energy power which allows remaining submerged, stealth and manoeuvring during extended periods. The whole combat system and platform management system are fully integrated. She benefits from the latest developments in terms of Artificial Intelligence (AI). With a perfect hydrodynamic shape (inspired by biomimicry), specially designed for stealth versus active acoustic means, SMX 31 is totally undetectable.

-- D19 multi-mission torpedo drone:
Drawing on its experience in autonomous underwater vehicles, Naval Group has developed a new Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) called the D19. The family of D19 drones is equipped with modular front-end payload, meaning it can easily be adapted for each mission. It can be launched by a submarine, a surface vessel or from the shore.

Equipped with modular payload at the front end, which can be easily switched thanks to a plug-and-play system, D19 can fulfil a wide variety of missions, such as identification, surveillance, recognition; electronic warfare; anti-submarine warfare; underwater mobile target; mine countermeasures or rapid environmental assessment.

The D19 is built on a F21 torpedo base. This way, Naval Group takes advantage of its experience accumulated with the development of this torpedo. The D19 is propelled by a Lithium-ion energy section. Already sea proven thanks to the joint effort of Naval Group and the French Navy, the D19 combines long endurance and intelligence.

-- Smart energy:
AIP revolution and a new generation of Lithium-ion batteries system for submarines

Naval Group has developed an Air Independent Propulsion (AIP) system powered by 2nd generation fuel cells called FC2G. Naval Group AIP gives non-nuclear submarines unprecedented operational ability by enabling them to stay submerged for weeks at a time.

Naval Group has also developed a high performance and highly secure Li-on batteries system to provide its submarines with outstanding operational capabilities, as well as with an immersion period and reloading time largely optimized. The Li-ion batteries system LIB, improves security and performances on-board submarines developed by Naval Group.

Facing underwater future challenges

During UDT 2019, Naval Group experts will take part to conferences on:
-- Improving the submarine sonar array integration for operational performance (13th May, Edouard Honore – Naval Group & Christophe Lozach – Thales, Theatre 1)
-- Simulating the Radar Cross Section (RCS) of the wake of a submarine at periscope depth (15th May, Eric Letouzé, Theatre 2)
-- Confusion and dilution countermeasures (13th May, Sebastien Colson, Theater 4)

-- Thinking tomorrow’s submarine to face operational challenges in constraint environment, the example of the SXM31 (15th May, Armel De Roeck & Lou Durand, Theater 4).

Another round of conferences will be dedicated to torpedoes:
-- CFD simulation of a torpedo swim-out launching (13th May, Fabian Pécot & Thierry Taillefet, Theater 4)
-- Heavyweight torpedoes program: management of validation and qualification processes (13th May, Eric Lescoat, Theater 4)

Finally, Naval Group will present its innovations in the range of prediction tools and acoustic performance:
-- Performance of prediction tools for submarine manoeuvrability in constrained and shallow water (14th May, François Pétillon, Theater 2)
-- Numerical prediction of non-cavitation noise from the propeller (15th May, Frédérique Chevalier, Theater 2)
-- Analysis of the vibro-acoustic behaviour of a submarine hull on a wide frequency range using experimental and numerical approaches (15th May, Valentin Meyer, Theater 2).
