Sagem to supply Sigma 30 system to three European armies

The M270 Mars MLRS.

PARIS (BNS): European defence firm Sagem has been contracted to provide the Sigma 30 navigation and pointing systems for the self-propelled M270 Mars MLRS artillery systems used by the armies of Germany, Italy and France.

The contract has been awarded by EADS Cassidian, Sagem said, without disclosing the contract amount.

Five artillery regiments in the armies of these three countries are to be upgraded to the GMLRS (Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System) standard.

The Sigma 30 is a laser gyro land navigation and pointing system for artillery pieces. It has been designed for highly accurate firing on short notice. The system can also be fitted in howitzers, mortars and light guns besides multiple rocket launchers.

The Sigma 30 system will be coupled to a hardened, latest-generation SAASM (Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module) type GPS receiver, Sagem said.
