Sagem showcases revamped offering of networked tactical combat solutions at Eurosatory 2010
Paris, June 11, 2010
Sagem, a Safran group company, is a major player in the market for digital battlefield solutions, and prime contractor on key systems chosen by the French army, including
the FELIN soldier modernization system, Sitel tactical information system and Sperwer
tactical drone system.
Drawing on feedback from international deployments in the field, plus a proven capability
for innovation, Sagem is showcasing a revamped product offering at Eurosatory 2010.
These solutions are designed to give air-land forces solutions that boost their observation, protection, command and robotic efficiency.
Highlights this year include:
Spider, a C3I (command, control, communications and intelligence) system for vehicles.
With its touch screen incorporating a digital map, Spider can evaluate tactical situations,
manage onboard or dismounted sensors, provide rangefinding or even control a Wasp
type self-protection turret. It also manages the transmission of image-based intelligence
over tactical radio networks.
Storm FCS (fire control system), a complete modernization solution designed for selfpropelled or towed artillery. The Storm FCS supports quick battery setup and precise
pointing, using its fire control computer coupled with a Sagem Sigma 30 inertial reference system. It can also be fitted with a Sagem CM3 day/night optronic sight for direct line-of-sight firing.
Sword Light, a lightweight (550 gram), compact, versatile weapon scope, with both an
infrared channel and an optical sight. Featuring digital zoom in the IR channel, Sword
Light delivers sharpshooter accuracy under all conditions.
Matis HH (handheld), a portable tactical infrared imager. Matis HH adds observation
stabilization and image recording functions to infrared vision. Light and ergonomically
designed, the Matis HH tactical imager offers nighttime detection capability of an armored vehicle at more than 8 kilometers, and a soldier at more than 5 kilometers. It
was recently ordered by the Finnish army.
Matis XM (extended magnification), a cooled, long-range infrared imager, featuring a
x18 continuous optical zoom. Offering outstanding long-range detection and
identification capabilities, Matis XM is intended for zone surveillance networks and highperformance
ODIN, a modular, day/night, round-the-corner sighting system for 12.7 mm machine
guns and 20 mm cannon. ODIN capitalizes on the advanced technologies in the FELIN
soldier modernization system. It provides better protection for gunners operating crewed
weapons from light vehicles or helicopters. It enhances firing accuracy, which makes
ammunition management more efficient – and only weighs 1.3 kilograms!
OPSS (Observation Panoramic Stabilized Sight), a stabilized sight for armored vehicles,
combining observation, warning and sighting functions for the tank commander. Allowing
firing on the move, the OPSS meets the requirements for high-intensity combat by
armored units operating in the most demanding environments, including symmetrical
and asymmetrical threats, urban combat, etc. Capable of quickly engaging targets over
360 degrees, the OPSS can be integrated with Sagem’s own Savan 11 fire control
system. It also features open architecture, for easy integration with the latest generation
of vehicle electronics, making it an ideal solution for today’s digital battlespace.
WASP™ Observer, a day/night optronic surveillance system, designed to meet the
observation and self-protection needs of light armored vehicles. Operated via a userfriendly
terminal, WASP™ Observer detects hostile elements thanks to its integrated
CM3 MR or LR imager, and also helps protect armored vehicle crews. It perfectly
matches the needs of today’s digital battlespace.
Robotic solutions to improve operational capabilities. Sagem offers the first robotic
observation and tactical situational awareness function that can be used by a FELINequipped combat section or platoon. Enhancing collective protection, this function calls
on the Cobra mini-robot and Dragonfly mini-drone, developed by Sagem in conjunction with two French companies, ECA (Cobra) and Novadem (Dragonfly).
The revamped product line-up fully reflects Sagem’s expertise in tactical digital battlefield applications. It is displayed on Safran’s Eurosatory stand (E 81, Hall 6), in which Sagem’s offering is organized in eight sections: Infantry solutions (including the FELIN soldier modernization system), Portable optronics, Network enabled capability vehicles, Artillery solutions, armored vehicle solutions, Helicopter solutions, Drone systems and AASM guided weapons.
Sagem, a high-tech company in the Safran group, holds world or European leadership positions in
optronics, avionics, electronics and safety-critical software for both civil and military markets. Sagem is the
No. 1 company in Europe and No. 3 worldwide for inertial navigation systems (INS) used in air, land and
naval applications. It is also the world leader in helicopter flight controls and the European leader in
optronics and tactical UAV systems. Operating across the globe through the Safran group, Sagem and its
subsidiaries employ 6,700 people in Europe, Southeast Asia and North America. Sagem is the commercial
name of the company Sagem Défense Sécurité.
