Fincantieri: Naviris’ R&T Programme finalized

The final demonstrations for the last study of the R&T Programme, related to Digital Ship, took place on November 22nd in Genova: a concrete result of the cooperation between Fincantieri and Naval Group, the parent companies of the Joint Venture NAVIRIS, for the benefits of France and Italy, represented by their Armament General Directorates (respectively DGA and SEGREDIFESA), who mandated OCCAR (Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation) to manage the contract.

Signed on June 4th, 2020, the Naviris’ R&T programme contract marked the kick off of Naviris’ activities. Composed of 5 projects, it has set the foundation of the competitiveness of the Joint Venture and has been a fundamental enabler of the cooperation between Fincantieri and Naval Group. The last project focuses on “Digital Ship” and aims at developing warship simulation capabilities throughout its whole lifecycle in order to better predict performances and reduce the amount of real testing, to optimize architecture and to help warship operational use.

The aim of the demonstrations was to present the results of the “Digital Ship” study topic and their applicability. 

The meeting has been focused on the presentation of all the developments and the validation of calculation methodologies and tools carried out in the frame of the “Digital Ship”. 

Naviris and OCCAR expressed their deep appreciation to the entire integrated team comprising Fincantieri and Naval Group technicians for their involvement in these demonstrations, for the richness of the results achieved and for the demonstrations that took place earlier for the other study topics. These presentations demonstrated a great degree of cooperation and integration of the team, a good baseline for future cooperation and the use of these developments for future naval programmes (both the technologies and the use of the developed software).
