Innovation, our core strategy
At Naval Group, innovation serves two major challenges: guaranteeing the technological superiority of our customers across all oceans, and improving our competitiveness, a condition for our leadership on all continents.
R&D governance is overseen by the Naval Group Technical and Innovation department (DTI). This department carries out this mission by drawing on all the Group's entities and expertise, including Naval Research which has three R&D centres of expertise.
