Innovation is fundamental at Naval Group. It has been at the heart of our DNA, ever since 1858 and creation of La Gloire, the world’s first armored frigate. This tradition followed with Le Narval, the first submarine, built in 1899, and continues right up to our own day, with the landing of a self-piloted drone on a frigate at sea – another world first. These technological breakthroughs at Naval Group have been the reference for the naval, defence and energy industries, and have consolidated the group’s position as global leader.
