Défense Conseil International (DCI) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Nexter Systems on the joint promotion of capability offers for the benefit of armed forces in France and abroad.

The agreement encourages and combines joint projects built around Nexter with the training, consultancy and operational assistance services provided by DCI.

The services are also expected to be integrated in the field of simulation and on-board, simulation, where appropriate.

Nexter Systems CEO Philippe Burtin said: "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."

"This agreement will allow us to propose comprehensive offers under the label of French excellence."

DCI CEO Jean-Michel Palagos said: "We are confident in our approach, to provide capability offers built around the duo of French operational and technological excellence"

"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."

The companies are planning to explore subcontracting partnership solutions for the benefit of the French Army.

Specifically, the 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 also share them with the schools.

The companies have already demonstrated the complementary nature of their offer in a conclusive training project with a Middle Eastern country.
