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
