As is customary each year, Drass once again had the pleasure of opening its doors to the Italian Navy submariners who are attending the specialization course at the Italian Naval Academy in Livorno. Former submariners from Drass guided the delegation in a tour of the production facilities, introducing one and all to cutting-edge defence crafts and associated technologies that are proving to be gamechangers in the subsea domain in terms of operability, endurance and modularity. The visit generated invaluable dialogue and enthusiastic feedback.
