Navigation & Pointing for artillery
Safran Electronics & Defense's navigation, pointing and localization systems are designed for weapons systems. They are intended for new equipment programs and the modernization of artillery units. Based on gyrolaser technology, this reliable, easy-to-use stand-alone equipment is operational in the harshest of conditions. SIGMA 30 inertial navigation systems for the latest-generation artillery systems provide high-performance, highly accurate and ultra-secure pointing. ULISS 30XP is a support tool for armed forces and land weapons systemsdeployment in an unplanned geographic environment. It has been developed for pointing artillery pieces and conducting the most demanding topographic missions.
The Sigma 30 INS is the worldwide reference today for latest-generation artillery systems. It meets the demands of these systems perfectly, from ultra secure high-precision aiming, decametric-class localization without GPS and resistance to extreme shock levels. The major international prime contractors – especially European, Indian and Asian ones – have placed their trust in the Sigma 30.
The Sigma 30 system is used in more than 25 international programs for towed and tracked howitzers, multiple rocket launchers and mortars: Nexter's Caesar, BAE Bofors' Archer, Thales' 2R2M etc.
The compact, standalone ULISS 30XP topographic positioning system provides accurate decametric-class positioning of indirect artillery systems that do not have embedded navigators, such as howitzers, mortars or rocket launchers. It can also set metric-class topographic points to realign the navigation of navigator-equipped weapons systems. Lastly, it enables the elaboration of high-precision centimetric-class points for mapping or geodesic use. ULISS 30XP guarantees these levels of performance, even without GPS, so as to meet mission integrity requirements. It can easily be mounted on any light, 4-wheel drive type vehicle and operated by a small team.
