Kamov and Sagem team up on Ka-52 Al­li­ga­tor at­tack he­li­copter


Sagem and Kamov (Rus­sian Helicopters) have com­bined their com­ple­men­tary ar­eas of tech­no­log­i­cal and in­dus­trial ex­per­tise to de­velop an en­hanced ver­sion of the Kamov52 Al­li­ga­tor at­tack he­li­copter, which will ad­dress a re­quire­ment ex­pressed by sev­eral coun­tries.

Sagem and Kamov started work­ing to­gether in 2011, with the aim of of­fer­ing up­grade so­lu­tions, in­clud­ing in­te­gra­tion, for Kamov helicopters, in par­tic­u­lar Sagem op­tronic equip­ment and LINS 100 in­er­tial nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems. The two com­pa­nies plan to start in­te­gra­tion of a new op­tronic sys­tem in early 2014.

The com­pa­nies’ joint of­fer­ing for helicopters will sup­port Sagem’s strate­gic ob­jec­tive of es­tab­lish­ing long-term in­dus­trial part­ner­ships with lead­ing Rus­sian com­pa­nies.

In this co­op­er­a­tion Sagem will bring its ex­pe­ri­ence gained from the Strix op­tronic sight sys­tem, which is al­ready in pro­duc­tion for the French-Ger­man Tiger com­bat he­li­copter. Pro­vid­ing full day/night ca­pa­bil­ity, it has al­ready con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions by French armed forces in sev­eral theatres, in­clud­ing Op­er­a­tion Ser­val in Mali ear­lier this year.

LINS-100 is a laser gyro in­er­tial nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem, pro­duced in Rus­sia within the scope of the RS Al­liance joint ven­ture, cre­ated in Ra­men­skoye by ZAO-ITT of Rus­sia and Sagem.
