The aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL) of India has just ordered from Sagem Défense Sécurité (SAFRAN Group) more than 100 SIGMA 95N navigation systems. These systems will be used on the Indian Air Force Sukhoi fighters and the Tejas fighters from the Indian LCA (Light Combat Aircraft) program.
They will round out the SIGMA 95N systems already in use on the Sukhoi 30s, MiG-27, MiG-27s, Jaguars and Indian Hawks.
SIGMA 95N is a standalone inertial laser gyro navigation system with integrated GPS/Glonass. It brings high-precision navigation and a high degree of operating flexibility to combat aircraft.
Sagem Défense Sécurité (SAFRAN Group) has delivered the first SIGMA 30 navigation and pointing systems to the Indian Ministry of Defense’s DRDO/ARDE* for deployment on the Indian army’s Pinaka multiple launch rocket systems, initially for two regiments. These units will be integrated by Larsen & Toubro Ltd. and Tata Power Company Ltd., the two manufacturers responsible for Pinaka systems integration.
Developed and produced by Sagem Défense Sécurité using laser gyro technology, the SIGMA 30 land navigation system for artillery pointing and positioning is designed for high-precision firing on short notice.
