Brazil Opens Naval Systems Project Center (CPSN)
Contribute to the Strategic Projects of the Naval Force in the coming years, designing the first Submarine Conventionally Armed with Nuclear Propulsion (SCPN) in Brazil and also participate in the development of the Program for obtaining Patrol Ships (PRONAPA). These will be the immediate challenges of the Naval Systems Project Center (CPSN), the new Military Organization of the Brazilian Navy inaugurated on Friday, December 9, at the Itaguaí Naval Complex (CNI), in the state of Rio de Janeiro.
The new Naval Force Project Center will act in an integrated manner in the development of naval media projects in a single national engineering center, taking advantage of the structure and highly specialized professionals who previously belonged to the Submarine Development Center (CDSub) and the Ship Project Center (CPN), military organizations that were defunct with the creation of the NSPC.
This decision of the Navy will allow the centralization in the development of engineering projects of new ships and submarines that will be manufactured in the coming years, using the capacity and integration of the Arsenal of the Navy of Rio de Janeiro (AMRJ) and cni, one of the most modern industrial complexes in the country.
During the CPSN Activation Exhibition Ceremony, attended by Navy Commander Admiral Almir Garnier Santos and admiral of the Admiral, Rear Admiral (Naval Engineer) Rogério Corrêa Borges took over the direction of the new Military Organization, which will be subordinated to the Navy’s Directorate-General for Nuclear and Technological Development. And to talk about the main challenges of the CPSN, Rear Admiral Borges granted an interview to the Marine News Agency.
