⚓️ Extremely low vibration levels even at max. power
⚓️ Fast, highly manoeuvrable, silent, sea friendly
⚓️ Operational and sailing perfection
⚓️ Designed to reflect various Operational ProfilesThe Crossover Series’ development was based on several operational profiles, which is reflected in their respective type names.
Hence, the Command, Control, Communications and Combat systems are preselected accordingly, ready to be tailored to customer requests.
⚓️ Smart Use of Standards Resulting in Low CostsDSNS’s vast experience in applying a clever mix of commercial and naval standards and specifications results in the required naval quality and systems characteristics, while achieving low support costs through the competitive pricing and availability of the applied Commercial Off TheShelf (COTS) solutions.⚓️ Modular Building SystemDSNS offers pre-designed, customised options for payload areas, Command & Control, weapon, and platform systems.
Working through the requirements with the customer, DSNS is able to select the most suitable - tailored - platform configuration.
In addition, the modular building system is ideally suited to fulfil any economic development requirement and to involve local yards in the construction process.⚓️ Flexibility for the FutureOn top of traditional naval warfare tasks, today’s navies face growing challenges in the field of Maritime Security and Humanitarian Aid & Disaster Relief (HADR). The number of tasks increases while the number of ships remains the same or even decreases.
Fully developed to execute current tasks and cater for future capabilities, the Damen CROSSOVER is the ultimate mission modular naval concept. Pivotal to this innovative solution is the so-called X-Deck - a single, flexible deck to handle, store, operate and deploy mission equipment, fast RHIBs, as well as landing craft.
As multiple modes of access and handling are provided, future systems, unknown at present, will be able to be fitted and operated.⚓️ The Best of Boyh Worlds, The Navies Littoral EnablerIn recent maritime operations navy ships were increasingly sent out on missions as single ships. Future ships need to be self-sustaining, self-reliant and capable of dealing with threats effectively.
The Damen CROSSOVER is autonomous, agile, robust and powerful. At the same time, integrated operations - Navy and Marines on a single mission - have become common practice.
The Damen CROSSOVER has been developed as a new hybrid ship concept to address these combined trends.
With the fighting power of a frigate, it has the endurance, versatility and flexibility of an amphibious ship.
⚓️ The Damen Crossover Built on Proven TechnologyCombining and projecting the success of both the ENFORCER LPDs and the SIGMA Combatant Series, Damen has created a unique class, the CROSSOVER.
The Enforcer philosophy guarantees a flexible arrangement of deck spaces, optimum internal logistics and vital infrastructure.
The Sigma Series’ “genetics” provides a proven hull form capable of high speeds with low vibrations and excellent ship handling properties, even in extreme conditions.⚓️ Enabling a Wide Operational Profile
