Naval Group and the start-up Icarus Swarms, a part of Dronisos, have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop drone swarm options for navies. The battle in opposition to uneven warfare is among the main considerations of twenty first century navies. Drone swarms or robotic swarms characterize each a risk and a chance for current fleets. Drone swarms, whether or not airborne, floor or underwater, are resilient, saturating and elusive. They thus make it potential to hold out new types of missions which can be complementary to traditional vectors. Navy missions can subsequently be impacted by these new applied sciences.

To strengthen their collaboration, Naval Group and Icarus Swarms have formalized their partnership in a memorandum of understanding signed on February, the first, 2022. The complementary experience of Naval Group and Icarus Swarms within the area of drone swarms ought to result in the emergence of tomorrow’s makes use of. This partnership has already led to common trials, a few of that are carried out in collaboration with the French Navy. Naval Group and Icarus Swarms have already carried out simulated assaults of ten to at least one hundred drones to check techniques for detecting uneven threats utilizing Dronisos’ Certifence product.


Naval Group and Icarus Swarms announce their collaboration to develop new functions for drone swarms.

These new functions can be developed and examined, specifically in New Aquitaine, on the Naval Group web site in Angoulême-Ruelle in addition to on the Dronisos places of work in Bordeaux. The Angoulême-Ruelle web site specializes within the design, manufacture, testing and upkeep of a variety of apparatus for the floor and submarine vessels of its navy prospects. The Innov’Manufacturing unit, Naval Group’s 4700m2 constructing based mostly in Ruelle sur Touvre, devoted to innovation and improvement, will welcome the undertaking group within the coming months to proceed the exchanges and discover future joint developments.

Positioned beneath the authority of the Agence de l’Innovation de protection (AID) in cooperation with the French military Etat-major (EMA), France’s defence procurement company (DGA) and the Path Générale des relations internationals et de la Sratégie (DGRIS), the Purple Staff provides a potential imaginative and prescient in an effort to anticipate the technological, financial, societal and environmental dangers more likely to generate potential conflicts by 2030-2060. The signing of this partnership is a part of the corporate’s innovation method, which already brings collectively laboratories, start-ups, industrialists and navies across the theme of drone swarms
