SINGAPORE (BNS): Sagem (Safran) has signed a contract with DSTA of Singapore to develop and produce a new Gun Fire-Control System (GFCS) for eight Littoral Mission Vessels ordered by the Republic of Singapore Navy.

Sagem’s new GFCS is a centralised system located at the ship’s operations centre that integrates several functions: main and secondary guns, radar, optronics and navigation systems.

Capable of operating from several multifunction consoles concurrently, Sagem’s GFCS will also be interfaced with the combat management system.

It’s open architecture not only allows for easy integration but also ensures flexibility and scalability for future upgrades and enhancement, Sagem said.

A long-standing partner to the Singapore Navy, Sagem has also supplied the GFCS for the six Formidable class frigates, and four Endurance class LSTs.

The upcoming Littoral Mission Vessel class programme for Singapore comprises eight 1,200-tonne vessels. This programme, being led by ST Marine as prime contractor, will replace the country’s current Fearless-class patrol vessels.
