Joint Fires Support Systems
Increasingly digital battlefield rise many challenges in Observation, Intelligence & Targeting.
The Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition & Reconnaissance (ISTAR) resources deployed by units on the ground must be integrated in the command chain, while ensuring interoperability between services and with allies. To address this trend, Safran Electronics & Defense is introducing its Joint Fires Support Systems, a family of solutions that combine modular architecture and advanced digital capabilities.
Joint Fires Support Systems, achieve tactical success
The Joint Fires Support Systems lie in Safran's capitalized expertise in true North Finding, in electro-optics and digital-aided systems offering highest connectivity.
The Joint Fires Support Systems are based on a latest-generation hemispherical resonator gyro (HRG). Safran Electronics & Defense drew on its highly modular products to develop these new systems, which are the lightest on the market and can be easily integrated with other systems deployed by armed forces.
Joint Fires Support Systems: integrated and interoperable systems
The Joint Fires Support Systems comprise a precision inertial North seeker and electro-optical (optronic) equipment produced by Safran Electronics & Defense, a laser designator (or marker), a radio and a Geographic Information System (SIG) deployed by armed forces.
Safran Electronics & Defense offers wide choice on Systems in order to respond different mission .Safran solution is between 3.2 & 4.8kg, the lightest on the market.
The Joint Fires Support Systems from Safran Electronics & Defense are designed for use by forward observers and controllers. The system will allow them to handle the real-time surveillance, identification, positioning and communication of TLE CAT1 (Target Location Error) up to 4.5km coordinates anytime anywhere for a given point of interest. Thanks to a minimized set-up time, these systems save precious time for operational forces, by reducing the "Sensor to Shooter" cycle.
The Joint Fires Support Systems are designed to be integrated with armed forces' C4I systems: Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence.
The interoperability of the system's different components means that coordinates and tactical information can be transmitted digitally, according to joint allied standards. This arrangement helps limit any risk of error or collateral damage.
