- DCNS expertise in submarine design and construction, through the Scorpene medium-size submarines. Already chosen by the Royal Malaysian Navy and other first rank navies, Scorpene submarines represents the state-of-the-art in submarine design and construction and benefits from the latest technologies developed for nuclear-powered classes operated by the French Navy, particularly as regards acoustic discretion and combat system performance. At DSA, the Scorpene is presented through the Subtics® combat system.
- The Mistral-Class LHD. With a length of 199 metres and a displacement of 21,500 tonnes, a Mistral-Class LHD offers a global projection capability for troops and materiel. Mistral-Class LHD also offers ample capacity as hospital ships or for large-scale humanitarian missions. The design features electric propulsion using azimuth pods and high-level automation compatible with a complement of just 170. A high-performance communications suite, a 3D surveillance radar and a Senit 9 combat management system (CMS) make the type ideal as a naval force command vessel. For the record, the third Mistral-Class for the French Navy was delivered ahead of schedule and the construction of the first Mistral-Class LHD for the Russian Navy has started.
