Safran announces Sigma 30 order
Safran Electronics and Defense will supply the Sigma 30 system to an unnamed customer under a contract announced on 18 November.
The contract will see several dozen Sigma 30 systems supplied for the customer’s mobile counter-battery radars.
The Sigma 30 navigation and pointing system is designed to be integrated into mobile radar systems to accurately and quickly determine the precise location of enemy batteries as soon as it detects any firing. Developed to optimise the operational deployment of artillery units and their intelligence systems, Sigma 30 gives combat platforms an autonomous engagement capability, even when there are no GPS signals.
The system can be used with a wide range of artillery, including ground survey vehicles, ground and surface-to-air artillery batteries (Caesar, 2R2M, Archer, PzH2000, Mars II, VL MICA) and their associated radars.
