Systems

On-board systems, mission and combat systems, digital and cybersecurity systems: as a system engineering leader and integrator, Naval Group integrates all aspects relating to on-board digital systems right from the design phase.

Our objectives? Propose powerful, scalable, reliable ships capable of continuous operation, even when under cyberattack. To adapt to digital technologies and provide navies with the best performance in complete safety, ships now have a distributed cloud-type architecture, Afloat Common Computerized and Evolutive Secured System (ACCESS). This resilient and scalable system offers the crew the services needed to manage all the ship’s systems and data. Easy to use, it is controlled by artificial intelligence developed by Naval Group and is based on proven civilian systems, its mastery of naval combat systems and its knowledge of the French Navy's operational feedback.

AI, a force multiplier

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) also makes a difference in data exchange and decision-making. AI provides crews with tangible benefits, for example by supporting decision-making in complex situations or by improving human-machine interfaces. Signed at the end of 2019, the partnership with the Institute for Research in Information Technology and Automation (Institut de recherche en informatique et en automatique - INRIA) aims to increase our capacity for innovation in the field of AI.

Cyber resilience made a major priority

System cybersecurity is now an area of combat, which is why Naval Group integrates, right from the start, cyber capabilities on board its ships, and guarantees their resilience at all stages of the life cycle. Naval Group’s warship digital systems are all natively protected (cyber by design).

Cybersecurity is also included in the ship development, production and in-service monitoring phases. Note: Naval Group's cyber solutions are tested and proven on its own testing and qualification platforms.

Drones, allies of naval security

To detect, identify, classify and neutralise a threat beyond the detection and action resources specific to combat ships, underwater, airborne and land drones are deployed and coordinated using the I4®Drones mission system. In this area, Naval Group works within an open innovation approach alongside innovative start-ups that offer new technological building blocks such as underwater Wi-Fi or wireless energy transmissions.

Asymmetric threats

The Digital Combat Bridge is an innovative operational centre used to ensure surveillance of the external environment in the near vicinity of the ship over 360° by day and by night, and coordinating the means used to respond to any type of situation (asymmetric threat, complex manoeuvres, etc.).

Our on-board mission and combat system offer

Naval Group designs and integrates on-board mission and combat systems. At its Ollioules site, more than 1,000 engineers and technicians are involved in this area. Representing Europe's leading centre for real-time software, the campus also has a virtual reality laboratory.
