Nexeya France, a HENSOLDT company, has received an order for 6 LYNCEA Combat Management Systems (CMS) from French shipyard SOCARENAM, following a competition organised by the French procurement agency the DGA.
The CMS will equip the French Navy’s Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) beginning in 2021, Jérôme Giraud, Nexeya France’s CEO said: “Nexeya and all its employees are proud to have been selected in this competition. This will strengthen our position on the OPV market and offers us important prospects in France and abroad.”
LYNCEA offers a tactical datalink that increases operational capacities to communicate with the ship’s Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs) and commandos while offering additional capacities to store and analyse data collected by the ship’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). The LYNCEA system is already in use on board six OPVs and six surveillance frigates of the FLOREAL class. With this order, Nexeya France strengthens its leadership position in innovative, effective and competitive solutions for French OPVs. The CMSs are developed in Toulon and Angoulême and this order represents about 13,000 working hours for Nexeya’s engineers and technicians.
