Safran wins Middle East Uliss 30XP contract

21st June 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Safran Electronics & Defense has received a contract from an undisclosed Middle East customer for the supply of Uliss 30XP topographic positioning systems for an artillery brigade, it announced on 15 June.

The contract also includes providing training services for the brigade's personnel.

Based on a high-performance version of Safran Electronics & Defense's SIGMA 30XP inertial navigation system, the Uliss 30XP is a Positioning and Azimuth Determination System (PADS) and features a processing unit and a theodolite. The Uliss 30XP can identify the geographic coordinate references required to operate and point artillery batteries, even in a GPS-denied environment.

Uliss 30XP is modular and autonomous, and can be integrated in any current armoured vehicle. It is part of the Sigma 30 family of pointing systems, which is already in use on the PzH 2000, Archer and Caeser artillery systems, 2R2M mortar, Mars single-rocket launcher and mobile air defence radars.

The Uliss 30XP can be deployed near artillery pieces without their own navigation and pointing systems. Additionally, data from topography missions can be used to produce detailed military maps.
