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.
