Nex­ter Sys­tems and DCI agree­ment based on ca­pa­bil­ity ap­proach


The CEOs of Nex­ter Sys­tems and Défense Con­seil In­ter­na­tional (DCI) have signed a me­moran­dum of un­der­stand­ing on the joint pro­mo­tion of ca­pa­bil­ity of­fers for the ben­e­fit of forces in France and abroad. This move en­cour­ages joint projects built around Nex­ter sys­tems com­bined with the pro­vi­sion of train­ing, con­sul­tancy and op­er­a­tional as­sis­tance ser­vices that DCI can pro­vide. Where ap­pro­pri­ate, the ser­vices will be in­te­grated in the field of sim­u­la­tion and on-board sim­u­la­tion.

The Nex­ter Group and DCI are also plan­ning to ex­plore sub­con­tract­ing part­ner­ship so­lu­tions for the ben­e­fit of the French Army. Both com­pa­nies pro­pose to re­in­force with ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing tools, such as generic vir­tual train­ing (GVT), the DCI struc­tures that make up part of Draguig­nan mil­i­tary schools, and to share them with said schools. Nex­ter and DCI have al­ready demon­strated the com­ple­men­tary na­ture of their of­fer in a con­clu­sive train­ing project with a coun­try in the Mid­dle East.

Nex­ter ap­plies its ex­per­tise in land de­fence sys­tems to meet the needs of the French Army and other forces in­ter­na­tion­ally. The scope of its busi­ness in­cludes the sup­ply of weapons sys­tems and mu­ni­tions for rmy, air force, navy and law en­force­ment ap­pli­ca­tions. In 2012, Nex­ter re­ported rev­enue of 742 mil­lion eu­ros, of which 18 per cent were al­lo­cated to re­search and de­vel­op­ment. SP
