Inertial systems for armored vehicles
The need for precision on the battlefield generates a growing need for armored vehicles to demonstrate excellent heading, positioning and pointing capabilities.
To meet these needs, Safran Electronics & Defense produces a range of inertial systems dedicated to observation, pointing and stabilization on tanks and armored vehicles.
Accelerometers and gyrometers are used in the gyro-stabilization of sights, turrets, RCWS and tank guns.
Safran Electronics & Defense is a world leader in the manufacture of inertial navigation units for land vehicles.
The MS56 series was specifically designed for applications combining a very low signal-to-noise ratio and exceptional bias stability, all at a reasonable cost. The gyro units come as a kit or in a hermetically-sealed box with up to 3 axes, depending on customer requirements.
The "Quapason" sensor is a highly robust resonating gyroscope.
The gyros are dedicated to sights and optical systems, RCWS, small and medium-caliber guns, feed forward gyro for more precise stabilization, as well IMU in civil applications.
Drawing on its expertise covering all gyroscope technologies (vibrating gyros, wheeled mechanical gyros, fiber-optic and laser units), Safran Electronics & Defense can deliver the right technologies and the best combination of cost and precision to meet all stabilization requirements.
The 20BM range was designed for high-precision stabilization, on equipment such as large caliber guns, gyro-stabilized gimbals, naval and land turrets or optical sights. As part of the extensive panel of inertial systems designed and manufactured by Safran Electronics & Defense, this dynamically tuned gyroscope (DTG) offers the best compromise between precision required for stabilization purposes, robustness, reliability, and price.
The gyroscopes or gyrometers come as a kit or in a hermetically-sealed box depending on customer requirements.
The new 20BM67-HP range by Safran Electronics & Defense delivers a digital Plug & Play solution for stabilization needs.
This unit features a dynamically tuned gyroscope (DTG) delivering the best compromise between precision required for stabilization purposes, robustness, reliability, and price, as well as a digital readout.
This new range is well-suited for large-caliber guns, gyro-stabilized gimbals, naval and land turrets or optical sights.
