Euronaval: Naval Group unveils the SMX31E new full electric “Concept Submarine”

During Euronaval Online, Naval Group unveils an evolution of its previous "concept submarine”, the SMX31E. This ambitious design merges all the new technologies that Naval Group is exploring. If such an innovative design won’t be operational before the 2040s (if ever), some of the proposed systems and technologies will likely be ready for operations in the following years or decades.

Two years ago, for Euronaval 2018, Naval Group presented a new “concept ship” submarine, the SMX31. The design was then very radical, with the elimination of the sail and the aft propeller, and an overall biomimetic shape that reminds a humpback whale or a sperm whale. For Euronaval 2020, instead of a completely new concept submarine, Naval Group chose to unveils an upgraded version of the SMX31. More realistic and using accurate technologies, the new SMX31E better reflects what a future submarine could be circa 2040.
