The future Barracuda type SSNs (Suffren-class) of the French Navy is fitted with a Smart Ops Room (or CIC) with excellent ergonomics. It features 10 multi function consoles for combat operations as well as a smart tactile table for cooperative mission planning and navigation.
The Suffren’s Combat Management System is the SYCOBS, for Système de Combat Commun Barracuda et SNLE (Joint Combat System for Barracuda and SSBN). First seen on the Terrible, the SYCOBS was later introduced on the remaining Triomphant-class ships during their retrofit. Using a similar CMS reduces the risks during the Barracuda development and facilitates transfer of crew members between SSN and SSBN.
