Kamov, Sagem team for Ka-52 attack helicopter

29th August 2013 - 16:41 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sagem and Kamov have announced at the MAKS aviation and space salon that they will work together to develop an enhanced version of the Kamov-52 Alligator attack helicopter.

The teaming agreement will support Sagem’s strategic objective of establishing long-term industrial partnerships with leading Russian companies.

Sagem and Kamov will position the enhanced Ka-52 attack helicopter to address requirements expressed by several countries.

The companies have worked together since 2011 on upgrade and integration solutions for Kamov helicopters, and the teaming agreement will build on work already undertaken in the field of optronic sighting systems and inertial navigation systems by the companies. Plans have been announced to begin integration of a new optronic system in early 2014.

In particular, Sagem said it will draw on the experience gained from the Strix optronic sight system, which is already in production for the French-German Tiger combat helicopter. Providing full day/night capability, the company said it has already contributed to the success of military operations by French armed forces in several theatres, including Operation Serval in Mali earlier this year.
