Sagem’s upgrading solution, a key to a “shoot and scoot” firing, is based on a Sigma 30 artillery Inertial Navigation System , coupled with a latest generation hardened SAASM (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) type GPS receiver.
The MLRS systems deployed by two Bundeswehr Battalion are planned for modernization.
EADS Germany is design authority for this program, on behalf of the BWB (Federal Office for Defense Technology and Procurement).
Based on laser gyro technology, Sagem’s Sigma 30 is a high-performance land navigation and artillery pointing system designed for the harshest tactical environments. It delivers very high firing accuracy, to within metric range, on a very short notice. Sigma 30 units are already used in today’s most modern artillery systems, including the CAESAR and ARCHER wheeled howitzers , 2R2M mobile mortar systems in Europe, and in several armies in the Middle East.
Sagem artillery solutions are already deployed by the armies of about twenty countries to date, and cover all state-of-the-art applications: advanced observation systems, networked optronic sensors, navigation and pointing systems, fire control, computers, digital mapping, systems integration.
