Drawing on the strong technological know-how of Naval Group and the vibrant dynamics of Singapore’s R&D landscape, the Centre of Excellence will create a chat-bot to help a crew operate a vessel safely, and implement an Internet-of-Things sensor network on-board for dedicated crew health-monitoring.

In addition, the team will develop a software simulator environment to train, validate and examine the joint interactions of disparate sensors and navigation/collision avoidance algorithms, all of which would bring Autonomous Ships closer to reality.

To support these three-year projects, the Centre of Excellence is keen to hire individuals proficient in technologies that straddle Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics, and Software Engineering.

Since November 2019, Naval Group launched the new center of excellence for Research and Development in Singapore. This initiative has to create world-class expertise based in Singapore for strategic naval defense research topics.

This international collaborative platform of exchanges located in Singapore will therefore respond to a triple objective: boost innovation in new strategic domains such as Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, create a supply of innovative technologies for the regional market as well as supporting the joint effort led by both Singapore and France regarding R&D investments.
