PARIS (BNS): Defence company Sagem of the Safran group has been awarded a contract by French shipbuilder DCNS to develop air-surface detection systems which will be installed on four conventional submarines being built for the Brazilian Navy.

Under the contract, Sagem will supply three kinds of instruments for each submarine. They would include the Series 30 SMS (1) multi-sensor tracking optronics mast, with a wide-array infrared imager and high-definition colour camera; Series 20 APS (2) attack periscope, also incorporating a high-definition colour camera and Series 10 CSR (3) navigation radar mast.

The systems intended for Brazil’s new submarines also feature advanced technologies like integrated digital imaging system, high-resolution panoramic display, user-friendly operation from multifunction combat system consoles, etc, the company said.
