The S-80 ?? Plus ?? Program The last stretch begins with the delivery of the first unit to the Spanish Navy. The road was not easy due to its enormous technological complexity and probably the greatest challenge for research and development and development in our country.
Numerous companies took part in the project developed by Navantia in its Cartagena factory, including the Spanish Sener with its FORAN (Analytical Forms) design tool. The FORAN system enabled the technical design of the submarine and, as a result, the generation of information for the various workshops and work.
Likewise, the FORAN system has made it possible to manage Navantia’s work processes on the Windchill platform with the entire structural design model, the various systems that make up the submarine of the various disciplines, as well as the electrical, communication and control systems.
Thanks to the FORAN software, Navantia specialists have created a complete digital model with an accurate 3D model, which offers applications to support the life cycle of the various units. As part of this project, Sener also provided a virtual reality room where Navantia work teams hold meetings to review the design, manufacturing and assembly processes using virtual reality technology.
The FORAN system is Spanish software developed by Sener and implemented internationally in the most demanding military programs. It has already been used on Scorpène submarines and is currently used in the construction of dreadnought-class nuclear-powered submarines for the Royal Navy. The FORAN system is a highly specialized design tool for the design of ships and marine equipment that is constantly evolving and includes innovative functions for digital transformation in the shipping industry.
