Dassault Systemes and DCNS Partner on the 3DEXPERIENCE Innovation Platform for Next Generation Naval Defense Solutions

Multi-disciplinary, Collaborative Innovation to Enhance Operational Performance and Competitive Edge on a Global Scale

Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and DCNS, world leader in naval defense solutions, today announced that DCNS has selected the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to pioneer a new era in the design, engineering, construction and lifecycle services of naval defense solutions.

DCNS will deploy the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to manage the entire lifecycle of its products, from new generation submarines to frigates, patrol vessels, aircraft carriers and landing platform docks (LPDs).  From concept through engineering, to build, maintain and operations services for its customers, DCNS’s transformation will improve operational performance and competitive edge on a global scale.

The design and engineering of high-performing naval defense solutions require a seamless integration of complex systems and infrastructure such as nuclear and conventional propulsion systems, radars, missiles and communications materials. End-users in all disciplines must rely on access to accurate, advanced and up-to-date information to make informed decisions.

DCNS, whose naval systems are recognized worldwide for their operational, innovative multi-mission capabilities, must manage extreme complexity and high-level integration to provide its clients, industrial systems and equipment partners, and supply chain with the most modern cooperation tools and digital interface. Adopting marine and offshore industry solution experiences based on one common 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the major catalyst to increase capacity and flexibility as well as the most competitive and efficient solutions.

“Agility—the capacity to provide timely, reliable and efficient answers to our clients’ demands while insuring world-class system integration and operational, cost-effective lifecycle solutions—is a significant competitive advantage,” said Herve Guillou, President and Chief Executive Officer, DCNS.  “Our cooperation with Dassault Systèmes and their transformational marine solutions provide a practical roadmap to achieve our ambitious goals from now on.”

“The marine and offshore industry at large is going through a new dynamic of innovation as the open seas are becoming more strategic than ever.  The DCNS decision to adopt the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to create a virtual twin of their products across all lifecycles will set a new level of performance in the naval sector,” said Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes.  “Our partnership with DCNS echoes our recent announcement with the world leader in cruise vessels Meyer Werft. Together we are inventing and putting in operation marine and offshore platforms that illustrate the industry of the future in a sector which calls for highly integrated systems to deliver unique experiences to its clients.”
