Narrative description of the project

Colombia’s maritime development has been imposing an increasing need for naval presence and coverage, which will require in the future either the renewal or a new modernization of the submarine fleet. To meet this strategic objective of the nation the Navy has implemented the “Procyon” Naval Construction and Optimization plan, which includes the “Ploteos” project, which refers to an oceanic submarine designed to operate in the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, in peacetime or crisis for the defense of national sovereignty, independently, or as part of a combined task force.
