Sagem unveils latest addition to Sigma 30 family
Sagem has unveiled the latest version of its Sigma 30 family of artillery navigation and pointing systems, the Sigma 30-700. According to the company, the system was developed to meet the evolving needs of manufacturers of long-range 52 calibres and long range artillery systems.
The Sigma 30 Inertial Navigation System (INS) works with the ballistic computer to give artillery pieces a significant operational advantage by supporting fast deployments and a wide range of scenarios in both symmetrical and asymmetrical engagements. It provides ultra secure high-precision aiming, decametric-class localisation without GPS and resistance to extreme shock levels.
According to the company, the new autonomous Sigma 30-700 is purpose-designed for the high-precision firing of long-range artillery. Like the rest of the Sigma 30 family, it provides the same degree of precision without GPS, or with signal jamming or decoys. Based on its performance characteristics, the Sigma 30-700 can also be used in counter-battery or air defence long-range radars.
Sigma 30 systems are based on digital ring laser gyro technology with a long optical path (32 cm), and have been selected by more than 40 artillery programmes worldwide. Coupled to the Caesar guns deployed by the French Army, they have demonstrated their capabilities in different theatres of operation.
