It shows a model of the Smart 4000 ship, printed by CEFAN, as an example of the application of these technologies to the design.

The ship will be powered by a hybrid diesel-electric propulsion that allows a top speed of 25 knots (46 km/h). The Smart 4000 ship will be armed with a 76 mm naval gun and 16-cell of vertical launch systems (VLS).

She will be able to carry up a crew of 70 sailors but it could be less depending on autonomous systems onboard.

One can observe at the back of the ship, a deck, which will be able to allow the launching of aircraft but especially of future Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
