FRENCH NAVY’S FRIGATE CASSARD

The French Navy’s Horizon and Cassard class air defense frigates will be upgraded with Sagem’s (Safran) optronic systems, the French defense procurement agency DGA (Direction générale de l’armement) announced.

 
The Sagem’s New-Generation Electro-Optical Multifunction Systems (EOMS-NG) will be installed on four ships. Under the contract, Sagem will also ensure complete maintenance services for three years, training and provision of spare parts. The products are slated for delivery in the second half of 2014 through the end of 2015.

The EOMS-NG is a high-performance, third-generation optronic system that provides panoramic infrared surveillance, reconnaissance, identification and tracking. It is envisaged for operation both day or night, at sea or in coastal areas, and against all types of threats. The systems are controlled from Sagem consoles located at the operations center and the close air defense bridge.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
