French Navy H160s to include Safran EO system

9th September 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Euroflir 410 EO system from Safran Electronics & Defense will equip Airbus H160 helicopters operated by the French Navy.

Babcock France selected the Euroflir system as part of a contract from French defense procurement agency DGA to provide four H160s for a period of ten years.

‘These four H160 rotorcraft from Airbus Helicopters will be part of an interim fleet that includes a dozen Dauphin N3 helicopters, also fitted with the Euroflir 410,’ Safran announced on 9 September.

The H160s will be modified by Babcock. The first helicopters outfitted with the Euroflir 410 will be delivered in 2022.

Feedback from the French Navy will inform the design of the H160M Guépard military version of the helicopter.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, the Euroflir 410 system features standard interfaces, enabling it to be integrated with other mission systems.
