Rolls-Royce selects Paramarine for naval ship design team

Qinetiq GRC’s Paramarine software has been selected by Rolls-Royce to support the company’s naval ship design team, which will design offshore patrol vessels and auxiliaries for customers such as navies, coast guards and other maritime agencies.

Peter MacLeod, capability manager — naval ship design at Rolls-Royce, said Paramarine software was selected for its market-leading early-stage design capabilities.

Paramarine has been used by commercial and naval shipbuilders, designers and universities to model and analyse concept vessels. It speeds the whole process of early-stage ship design, allowing the development of new projects from scratch in short timeframes.
