Naval Group at UDT 2019 in Sweden

From 13th to 15th May 2019, Naval Group participates to UDT 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden, to present its underwater systems.
Presenting underwater systems
Published: May 2019


During UDT 2019, Naval Group will showcase many of its innovative underwater vessels and solutions, developed through its close relationship with the French Navy.

SMX® 31: “the electric”

SMX® 31 is a showcase of developments Naval Group is studying for the next generation submarine. This resolutely digital submarine, designed to operate in a highly demanding environment, will carry out information gathering missions and will be more than ever capable of forceful actions that will result, either by using adapted weapons, or by “special” action modes (disruptive action modes adapted to different situations).

SMX® 31 is fitted with significantly increased energy power which allows remaining submerged, stealth and manoeuvring during extended periods. The whole combat system and platform management system are fully integrated. She benefits from the latest developments in terms of Artificial Intelligence (AI). With a perfect hydrodynamic shape (inspired by biomimicry), specially designed for stealth versus active acoustic means, SMX® 31 is totally undetectable.

D19 multi-mission torpedo drone

Drawing on its experience in autonomous underwater vehicles, Naval Group has developed a new Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) called the D19. The family of D19 drones is equipped with modular front-end payload, meaning it can easily be adapted for each mission. It can be launched by a submarine, a surface vessel or from the shore.

Equipped with modular payload at the front end, which can be easily switched thanks to a plug-and-play system, D19 can fulfil a wide variety of missions, such as identification, surveillance, recognition; electronic warfare ; anti-submarine warfare ; underwater mobile target ; mine countermeasures or rapid environmental assessment.

The D19 is built on a F21 torpedo base. This way, Naval Group takes advantage of its experience accumulated with the development of this torpedo. The D19 is propelled by a Lithium-ion energy section. Already sea proven thanks to the joint effort of Naval Group and the French Navy, the D19 combines long endurance and intelligence.

Smart energy: AIP revolution and a new generation of Lithium-ion batteries system for submarines

Naval Group has developed an Air Independent Propulsion (AIP) system powered by 2nd generation fuel cells called FC2G. Naval Group AIP gives non-nuclear submarines unprecedented operational ability by enabling them to stay submerged for weeks at a time.

Naval Group has also developed a high performance and highly secure Li-on batteries system to provide its submarines with outstanding operational capabilities, as well as with an immersion period and reloading time largely optimized. The Li-ion batteries system LIB, improves security and performances on-board submarines developed by Naval Group
