Innovation & Engineering

Watching our engineers develop ideas and bring innovative technologies to life is fascinating and inspiring at the same time. In our Innovation & Engineering section we want to share the ingenuity behind our innovations and how they take shape in the form of state-of-the-art submarines, surface vessels, our services as well as naval electronic systems.

Women in maritime engineering

To this day, women are underrepresented in many fields – especially in maritime shipbuilding. For the International Women's Day, we talked to Gabriele Zogs. As Head of Engineering Resources Management, the mechanical engineer looks back on a successful career in a traditionally male dominated industry.

Digital underwater communication in maritime shipbuilding

In recent years, many efficient transmission methods have been developed for mobile communications. Electromagnetic waves for wireless data transmission now enable large bandwidths and data rates of several GBit per second in this area - even over long distances. Digital underwater communication is an exception.
