QinetiQ’s Paramarine ship and submersible design software is being used by DCNS to support development of both its French and international submarine projects. DCNS, who design, build and support submarines and surface combatants, is using Paramarine for both submarine stability and early stage design on projects such as the Barracuda, the latest generation of French nuclear submarines, as well as in the development of the Scorpène diesel-electric attack class submarines.
“DCNS has been using Paramarine for early stage design and stability assessments for over ten years, delivering an extensive range of functionality which is continually being enhanced and developed on a wide range of national and international projects. Going forward we will also be using Paramarine at early design stage to systematically check the viability of future submarine concepts such as the SMX26 presented during the last EURONAVAL exhibition.” said the Manager of the Stability Department at DCNS.
“We have had a long and fruitful relationship with DCNS which we look forward to continuing to develop,” said Gareth Draper, Deputy Managing Director, QinetiQ Marine Design Software.
