Dassault Systèmes has been selected by DCNS, a global provider of naval defence solutions, to provide its 3D experience platform to conduct and monitor the complete lifecycle of naval defence solutions.
The 3D experience platform will be leveraged by DCNS to manage the design, engineering, construction and lifecycle services of its products that range from new generation submarines to frigates, patrol vessels, aircraft carriers, and landing platform docks (LPDs).
With the new platform, DCNS seeks to achieve enhanced operational performance across all lifecycles, from concept through to engineering, maintenance, and operational services, for its customers.
Dassault Systèmes president and CEO Bernard Charlès said: "The marine and offshore industry at large is going through a new dynamic of innovation as the open seas are becoming more strategic than ever.
"The DCNS decision to adopt the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to create a virtual twin of their products across all lifecycles will set a new level of performance in the naval sector.
"Our partnership with DCNS echoes our recent announcement with the world leader in cruise vessels Meyer Werft. Together we are inventing and putting in operation marine and offshore platforms that illustrate the industry of the future in a sector which calls for highly integrated systems to deliver unique experiences to its clients."
In December, Meyer Werft selected Dassault Systèmes' 'On Time to Sea' and 'Designed for Sea' industry solution experiences to more efficiently design and build its ocean-going cruise ships.
