Euronaval 2016: STX France launches DeviceSeas multirole ship
Reference yard for innovation, STX France has developed concept ships on all its market segments. In 2016, the French yard presents DeviceSeas, a multi-purpose mother ship with hydrographic and mine warfare capabilities. With a special focus on operability and safety, DeviceSeas represents a breakthrough in this fast growing market.

The DeviceSeas first features mothership key capability carried out by multi-purpose Launch and recovery systems capable of handling a range of vehicle sizes (from 2m to 12m) and hull shapes (underwater/floating, single hull, catamaran…) without compromises on safety of personals or ease of operations. Then, daughter-ships will not require any adaptation.

DeviceSeas is equipped with enhanced data communication management to handle field activities while partially processing information onshore. Therefore today’s onboard dedicated crew for pre-processing information will be installed ashore.

This new mothership also features ease of reconfiguration between the different missions, with no compromises on primary hydrographic and MCM missions (hull shape for minimizing risk of bubble sweepdown, integrated Operational Center…).

It integrates most advanced civilian technology for environmental impact reduction (electrical batteries for temporary redundancy, etc).
