Target acquisition systems for infantry

To meet the target designation needs of ground forces, Safran Electronics & Defense offers several families of modular, compact, and lightweight target acquisition systems. Sterna is a ground-breaking target acquisition solution, with neither magnetic compass nor GPS. It is fitted with an inertial sensor patented by Safran. The range of GonioLight pointers, used by a number of NATO forces (United Kingdom, Germany, etc.), comes in several versions that are adapted to your operational profile.

Designed for dismounted forward observers and forward air controllers, the GonioLight is a lightweight observation system station, based on portable tripods, providing horizontal and vertical angle measurements and orientation information in standalone mode. Instantaneously operational, they require neither pre-aligning nor pre-heating. The measured distance, azimuth and elevation are displayed on the graphical LCD, converted into target grid coordinates, stored and forwarded efficiently. Four standard versions are available:

  • GonioLight V (with VECTOR)
  • GonioLight G-V (with VECTOR and Gyroscope)
  • GonioLight TI (with VECTOR and JIM LR)
  • GonioLight G-TI (with VECTOR, JIM LR and Gyroscope)
