Naval operations require traditional and asymmetric military threats from air, land or sea to be taken into account. Safran Electronics & Defense has a full range of optronic systems (EOMS NG, Vampir NG, Vigy Observer, PASEO marine) that contribute to the operational efficiency of warships (helicopter-carriers, aircraft-carriers, frigates, corvettes, patrol boats) with new-generation sensors to detect and identify threats over very long ranges day and night, giving very early warning. These systems offer automatic panoramic surveillance for very low altitude detection.
Vampir NG is a very long-range infrared search/track system. It provides naval ships with passive panoramic surveillance functions including automatic detection, tracking and reporting of symmetric or asymmetric threats, from sea-skimming anti-ship missiles to Fast Incoming Attack Craft.
Vampir NG offers two operational modes: "ocean" mode allows very large range search at high sea while "littoral" mode allows long-range and large elevation search along the coast. The false alarm rate is very low, even in the littoral environment.
It is the most sensitive system on the market as well as the first one using the ultra-rapid "step-and-stare" principle enabling 360° coverage with a single high-performance IR camera.
With unsurpassed performance and reliability, VAMPIR NG is the best selling naval IRST worldwide
