Sagem at DSEI 2015: delivering high performance and innovation to today's front-line forces

DSEI, London, September 15, 2015

At this year's Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) event, from September 15-18, 2015 in London, Sagem (Safran) is showcasing its expanded offering of systems and equipment for land and naval forces. These systems span a wide range of demanding operational requirements, including intelligence, protection, engagement, precision strikes and asymmetric combat.

Sagem's stand is organized in several main areas: infantry and dismounted combat, navigation, optronic systems for land and naval platforms, surveillance drones, fire support and missile seekers. For the first time at the DSEI exhibition, Sagem welcomes to its stand the optronics business of Swiss subsidiary Vectronix AG. 

Sagem is spotlighting the following business lines at DSEI 2015:

Front-line targeting and intelligence. To carry out this critical function, Sagem offer the JIM LR (Long Range) multifunction infrared binoculars, as the core of a tactical intelligence and targeting system operating as part of a network. The combat-proven JIM LR combines a number of functions in a single, portable device: day/night sensors, rangefinder, laser pointer, compass, GPS and data transmission.

Reflecting the company's ongoing focus on innovation, Sagem has added new functions to its JIM family of binoculars: day/night (IR) image fusion, Smart phone operation, production of MPEG and JPEG images, and image and video recording. Used in conjunction with different support weapons, the JIM LR can be connected to a tactical operations and targeting terminal, a DHY-307 LW laser illuminator (Cilas), or a Sterna North seeker (Sagem). Because of its modular design, JIM LR can be remotely operated and integrated in Sagem's MOST optronic surveillance mast, as either a fixed station or vehicle-mounted.

Over 8,000 JIM binoculars are in service or under order in more than 30 countries, including several members of NATO (United Kingdom, United-States, Denmark, Czech Republic France, Poland,...).


Modernization of infantry and special forces. Sagem offers an infantry soldier modernization system that integrates operating feedback and the latest technologies, while also calling on the company's expertise as supplier of the FELIN modernization system for the French army. Sagem's solution is based on a state-of-the-art C4I system. Its scalable, modular design facilitates connectivity with new equipment (binoculars or weapon scopes, C2 applications), and with the communications systems on infantry fighting vehicles. Sagem is also showcasing its complete range of portable optronics equipment to meet the wide scope of infantry requirements: Moskito binoculars (notably the new Moskito TI, Sword infrared scopes, PLRF 25C range finder, NITESPOTMR and Tarsius 18 image intensifiers.  


Patroller long-endurance drone. Developed in France by Sagem, the Patroller is a surveillance drone system based on the EASA-certified S15 Stemme-Ecarys airframe. The Patroller offers endurance exceeding 20 hours with a payload of over 250 kg. The Patroller's modular architecture means that it can carry out both military and homeland security missions. It can also simultaneously process data from multiple sensors, including the Sagem Euroflir 410 optronic system, a pod-mounted high-resolution system with wide-field-of-view sensors (electronic warfare, imaging radar, AIS receiver for maritime traffic monitoring). The ground segment meets NATO interoperability standards for intelligence sharing.


Multi-mission optronic systems. Sagem's range of optronic systems covers intelligence, engagement and protection requirements for land and naval forces (including both submarines and surface vessels). These systems feature very-high-resolution sensors, advanced stabilization techniques, and easy integration with platforms, from both the hardware and software standpoints. At DSEI 2015, Sagem is spotlighting PASEO, a new family of multi-mission optronics for combat vehicles and warships. PASEO Marine can incorporate an optional spotter, along with an infrared search & track (IRST) function. It is also available in a fire control version.


Inertial navigation for ships and land vehicles. Sagem's Navigation unit is presenting its Sigma 40 laser gyro systems for surface ships and submarines, the Sigma 30 inertial unit for artillery systems, BlueNauteTM attitude and heading units for maritime navigation, and the Sigma 20 tactical land navigator. Based on a breakthrough technology patented by Sagem, the hemispherical resonator gyro (HRG), BlueNauteTM and Sigma 20 navigation solutions combine performance, small size, reliability and competitive pricing.

Sagem's Sigma 40 navigation systems are used on more than 500 surface ships and 75 submarines in 14 different classes. The BlueNaute system was recently chosen by the US Coast Guard to modernize its Reliance class ocean-going patrol boats and Juniper class ships.


Missile seekers. Sagem, in association with Selex ES Ltd, is underscoring its commitment to industrial collaboration between France and Britain, via the infrared seeker for the MBDA Sea Venom/ANL light anti-ship missile. Sagem is also developing the seeker for MBDA's future MMP medium-range missile. This new generation of seekers is based on an uncooled infrared array, a solution that makes weapon systems faster to deploy, more flexible, simpler and more reliable. Displayed on the stand is the seeker for the Mica air-to-air missile, deployed by Mirage 2000 and Rafale fighters.  

Sagem develops and produces key systems to carry out the most demanding missions assigned to today's combat platforms: Rafale fighter, NH90, Caracal and Tiger helicopters, combat vehicles (Leclerc, VBCI, BMP, South African Badger), artillery systems (Caesar, Archer, 2R2M, PzH 2000, LRM Mars, etc.) and surface-to-air weapons (MPVC, MICA VL). Sagem's optronic and navigation systems are used on a wide range of warships, including the Charles-de-Gaulle aircraft carrier, both conventional and nuclear submarines (SNLE NG Triomphant, Barracuda, Scorpène, Collins, U209, KSS-III, etc.), FREMM and Horizon frigates, and Australia's AWD destroyers.

At DSEI 2015, Sagem is exhibiting on the French Group's stand, N 7 - 315.
