Building the world’s most advanced ships requires innovation and cutting edge technology from design to production. More and more Naval and Coast Guard vessels are being detail designed with ShipConstructor software.
ShipConstructor began seeing use on naval projects in the USA and abroad in late 2002. This high profile market segment, once a stronghold of CATIA and Intergraph, is increasing dominated by projects designed and built entirely or in part with ShipConstructor products.
Some examples of projects recently completed or currently under construction include the Egyptian Navy’s Ambassador Mark III Fast Missile Craft; the US Navy’s first trimaran littoral combat ship, the USS Independence (LCS 2); the amphibious warship, USS America (LHA 6); the US Coast Guard’s Sentinel Class (FRC-B) Fast Response Cutters as well as the National Security Cutters Bertholf, Waesche, Stratton and Hamilton.
