Submarine consultants take vessel design software

QinetiQ : 19 May, 2014  (Application Story)
DCNS takes Paramarine ship and submersible design software from Qinetiq for its international projects
Submarine consultants take vessel design software

QinetiQ’s Paramarine ship and submersible design software is being used by DCNS to support development of both its French and international submarine projects. DCNS, who design, build and support submarines and surface combatants, is using Paramarine for both submarine stability and early stage design on projects such as the Barracuda, the latest generation of French nuclear submarines, as well as in the development of the Scorpène diesel-electric attack class submarines.

“DCNS has been using Paramarine for early stage design and stability assessments for over ten years, delivering an extensive range of functionality which is continually being enhanced and developed on a wide range of national and international projects.  Going forward we will also be using Paramarine at early design stage to systematically check the viability of future submarine concepts such as the SMX26 presented during the last EURONAVAL exhibition. Paramarine is easy to use and is supported by a highly competent team of software developers and naval architects at QinetiQ,” said the Manager of the Stability Department at DCNS.

“Paramarine is the world’s leading submarine design tool used by many submarine builders and navies  for the design of both conventional and nuclear submarines. We have had a long and fruitful relationship with DCNS which we look forward to continuing to develop,” said Gareth Draper, Deputy Managing Director, QinetiQ Marine Design Software.

Paramarine is based on 20 years’ experience in marine design and has a wealth of submarine specific analyses in one integrated product. The recent launch of the latest version of Paramarine (V8) has further extended the software’s functionality with the introduction of probabilistic damage modelling and assessment, as well as enhancements to its emergency response, reporting, and stability assessment capabilities. Confidence in its capabilities comes from the independent validation of results and approval for use by the UK MOD.
