Integrating the most modern technologies, Naval Group surface ships protect the sovereignty of navies over the world’s seas. Efficient, reliable and scalable, these concentrated technologies remain easy to use.
Detect before being detected
Carrying a full range of weapons, our surface ships use high-performance sensors and have an exceptionally low acoustic signature to be able to detect before being detected. Their spacious aviation installations allow helicopters to operate efficiently under all sea conditions. Thanks to excellent physical integration on board, our surface ships also respond to the fact that navies increasingly choose to use drones to expand their surveillance areas.
Interoperability and coordination
Interoperability is essential for fleets carrying out missions that cover anything from internal security to combat on the high seas. In accordance with the standards of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), our surface ships ensure interoperability, in particular through tactical data links that enable the coordination of allied fleets’ combat systems.
