“Safe­guard­ing In­dian skies for more than 60 years”

Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - Cover Story -

Safran is an in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­tive, high­tech­nol­ogy group and tier-1 sup­plier of sys­tems and equip­ment in the Aero­space and De­fence mar­kets. In In­dia, Safran is com­mit­ted to be­ing a full-fledged tech­nol­ogy part­ner in de­vel­op­ment of the In­dian aero­space and de­fence in­dus­try. The com­pany has had a time-hon­oured as­so­ci­a­tion with the In­dian Army, since the 1950s. “By pro­vid­ing en­gines and/or equip­ment for more than 70 per­cent of the air­craft and he­li­copters fly­ing in In­dia, Safran is proud to be safe­guard­ing In­dian skies for more than 60 years.”

Safran Elec­tron­ics & De­fense of­fers aero­space and land so­lu­tions and is the lead­ing sup­plier of in­er­tial nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems for In­dian com­bat air­craft. Sigma 95N nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems equip the Sukhoi Su-30MKI, Te­jas LCA, MiG-27, MiG-29, Jaguar and Hawk com­bat air­craft. Safran de­vel­ops and sup­plies the Au­to­matic Flight Con­trol Sys­tem ( AFCS) of the Dhruv he­li­copter, com­pris­ing APIRS At­ti­tude and Head­ing Ref­er­ence Sys­tems, Au­topi­lot Com­put­ers and ac­tu­a­tors, all of which are man­u­fac­tured and main­tained in In­dia. Safran Elec­tron­ics & De­fense’s AFCS is also fit­ted on the Light Com­bat He­li­copter ( LCH) and has been se­lected for the Light Util­ity He­li­copter (LUH) of HAL. More than 500 com­bat air­craft de­ployed by the In­dian Air Force and In­dian Navy are equipped with the In­er­tial Nav­i­ga­tion Sys­tems.

The Sigma 30 ar­tillery nav­i­ga­tion and point­ing sys­tems and CM3 in­te­grated op­tron­ics sights are used on var­i­ous ar­tillery and air de­fence sys­tems, be­ing key as­sets for the ac­cu­racy and op­er­a­tional flex­i­bil­ity of the sys­tems. The Ar­jun main bat­tle tanks are equipped with Sa­van 15 gun­ner sights. Safran Elec­tron­ics & De­fense has teamed up with the ma­jor con­tenders in the FICV project to of­fer in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions based on its HRG (Hemi­spheric Res­onat­ing Gyro) break­through tech­nol­ogy for nav­i­ga­tion and based on its lat­est gen­er­a­tion PASEO multi-func­tion sight for ob­ser­va­tion and fire con­trol sys­tems.
