Posted on 07 October 2013 by admin

DCNS which is world leader in naval defence and an innovator in the energy sector is exhibiting at Pacific 2013 International Maritime Exposition at Sydney, Australia from 7-9 Oct 2013.  As a naval prime contractor, systems integrator and shipbuilder, DCNS combines resources and expertise spanning the naval defence value chain and entire system lifecycles. DCNS delivers innovative solutions from integrated warships to strategic systems, equipment, services and new energy solutions. The DCNS stand showcases:

 

SURFACE SHIPS

• The FREMM multimission frigate combines the latest technologies developed by the DCNS group. FREMM frigates are among the most technologically advanced and competitively priced on the world market. France’s total order is 11 vessels and the delivery is scheduled from 2012 to 2022. In addition, one FREMM frigate for Marocco is pursuing sea trials in preparation for delivery later this year.

 

• The OPV Gowind® Adroit is designed to meet the operational needs of a large number of navies focusing on coastal missions/homeland security. During previous stopovers, many navies around the world have been favourably impressed by L’Adroit and recognised the operational benefits of the Gowind® range.

 

• The BRAVE support vessel is DCNS’s response to emerging logistic support needs identified by many navies. The ship is ideal for the underway replenishment of all types of products (dry cargo, fuel & other liquids and munitions), to provide logistic support for naval forces and to store and deliver all types of payloads, including dangerous substances.

Posted on 31 October 2012 by admin

The U.S. Navy supported the Oct. 23 launch of a U.K. Royal Navy Trident II D5 Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) built by Lockheed Martin. The unarmed missile was launched from the submerged Royal Navy submarine HMS Vigilant in the Atlantic Ocean.

 

The test marked the 143rd successful test flight of the Trident II D5 missile since design completion in 1989 – a reliability record unmatched by any other large ballistic missile or space launch vehicle.

 

“The Royal Navy and the U.S. Navy continue to demonstrate the readiness and reliability of this highly capable system,whose mission is to discourage aggression,” said Melanie A. Sloane, vice president of Fleet Ballistic Missile programs, Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, the Trident missile prime contractor. “The cooperation of both governments, supported by industry, provides a credible submarine-based strategic deterrent.”
