Nexter Systems and DCI conclude a strategic agreement based on a capability approach

Accord Nexter - DCI Copyright NexterVersailles, 18 February 2014 – 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.

"In keeping with our strong partnership policy, Nexter has sought to strengthen its offer with DCI and thus offer services that are more tailored to meet the needs of the Forces. This agreement will allow us to propose comprehensive offers under the label of French excellence" commented Philippe Burtin, CEO of Nexter Systems.

"We share a common vision with Nexter and all of its teams and we are confident in our approach: To provide, together, capability offers built around the duo of French operational and technological excellence", said Jean-Michel Palagos, CEO of DCI. "I am sure that this unique approach will provide a more comprehensive and sustainable response to the expectations of our customers and gives a stronger meaning to the integrated offer."

Nexter delivers the latest EBG-VAL to the School of Military Engineering in Angers


EBG-VAL Copyright Nexter - Aspheri  - CopieVersailles, 5 February 2014 – The Nexter Group delivers the 42nd Upgraded Engineering corps armored vehicle (EBG-VAL) to the School of Military Engineering in Angers, thus concluding the program to upgrade the EBG-F1 (initial version) and Pyrotechnic anti-tank mine clearing systems (SDPMAC), driven by the French Procurement Agency (DGA).


Derived from an AMX-30B2 chassis, the EBG-F1 was put into service for the first time in 1987. It has since been destined to fulfill support missions in combat, opening and closing routes, clearing obstructions or landscaping.
Faced with a wider range of threats and an ever-changing environment, in 2006 the DGA entrusted Nexter Systems with the task of upgrading 42 EBG-F1s, which became EBG-VALs, and 12 SDPMACs.


The aim of the program was to enhance protection, develop existing functions, provide new functions and improve ergonomics. In total, 54 engineer vehicles were delivered between September 2011 and January 2014.

Nexter Robotics, NBC-Sys et Euro-Shelter sont présents au Parc des Expositions de Paris-Nord/Villepinte pour les salons Milipol et MIDEST du 19 au 22 novembre

DSC 0073A l’occasion de la 18e édition du salon de la Sécurité Intérieure des Etats (Milipol Paris), Nexter Robotics et NBC-Sys présentent sur leur stand (R038) une possible association entre les mini-robots de reconnaissance NERVA et les détecteurs NRBC qui permettrait notamment de limiter l’exposition des personnels sur le terrain.

Présentée pour la première fois à Milipol, la gamme NERVA y est également mise en valeur de façon innovante au travers d’un parcours thématique et dynamique. DSC 0080Reprenant diverses situations opérationnelles auxquelles les NERVA peuvent être confrontés (Ascension de pentes raides, détection de menaces NRBC, chutes, évolutions dans un environnement à luminosité réduite, immersion dans l’eau), ce parcours vise à mettre en avant de manière ludique la résistance, la polyvalence mais aussi la simplicité d’utilisation des mini-robots de Nexter Robotics. La protection face aux menaces NRBC avec notamment la présence du masque à gaz SIRANO de NBC-Sys, est également à l’honneur sur ce stand commun.DSC 0085

Juste en face du salon Milipol, au hall 6 du Parc des Expositions, les visiteurs pourront également se rendre au salon MIDEST où Euro-Shelter présente sa nouvelle maquette de « concept-train » réalisée entièrement en panneaux sandwich. L’utilisation originale de ce matériau, alliant rigidité et légèreté, a d’ailleurs permis à Euro-Shelter de remporter le prix de l’innovation du salon dans la catégorie « Bureau d’Etude ».
