Naval Group Unveils Concept Ship SMX31 Electric

Innovation to Push Technological Thresholds

At Euronaval 2018 Naval Group unveiled the SMX31 Electric, a concept submarine that anticipates future threats, needs and constraints and aims to meet the operational requirements of the coming decades.

Naval Group innovates to push technological thresholds and achieve the levels of performance required to respond to future submarine operational needs. The stealthy SMX31 Electric submarine is fully electric and has the capability of meeting tomorrow’s operational challenges. It can operate freely and safely in an area controlled by an adversary, which may be potentially dangerous for surface vessels or aircraft. It can help navies gather and share valuable intelligence without ever being detected, thanks to its powerful acoustic, optronic and electromagnetic sensors. It is capable of acting decisively, using powerful new-generation weapons. It offers a number of benefits, including extreme stealth when submerged, increased invulnerability against modern weapons, energy autonomy and significant endurance. Furthermore, the entire combat system and platform management system is fully integrated, benefiting from the latest developments in artificial intelligence and thereby allowing the crew to focus on high added-value tasks in order to conduct complex operations.

A European leader in naval defence, with a heritage of more than 400 years, Naval Group leads the market for modern submarines, with over 100,000t of boats to be delivered. In addition to conceiving, designing and manufacturing the best submarines currently available, Naval Group has empowered nations such as Australia, Brazil and India to build their own cutting-edge underwater craft through advanced industrial cooperation mechanisms.
