To provide the best response to modern navies, Naval Group offered a customer driven tool at Euronaval 2018 exhibition, the surface ship design lab, to meet as closely as possible customer’s requirements.
In order to respond to the needs of modern navies around the world, Naval Group presented the surface ship design lab – a configurator of surface vessel generates a variety of future surface vessels designs, built according to the capabilities proposed by the configurator and selected by the visitor.
The design lab proposed on the booth illustrates the paramount importance of a customer driven process on the design of a solution. It also showed how innovation is the core of Naval Group’s identity and how gradual as well as disruptive innovation is integrated to Naval Group future systems and platform design, benefiting directly the customer navy.
The design lab also showed the proven ability of Naval Group to innovate throughout the years. In the nineties, Lafayette class frigate changed the rules of the surface warfare with its stealth design, making the vessel almost invisible.
