DCNS and SAGEM, a successful partnership around the "L’Adroit" Offshore Patrol Vessel
 
More than a technological prowess, the Gowind® OPV L’Adroit is an industrial challenge. Designed and built by DCNS in record time less than 24 months, it also innovates by important partnerships. Many manufacturers – including Sagem (Safran Group) – brought their experience.

Convinced by this new range of vessels signed by DCNS, the global leader in solutions and services in optronics Sagem equipped the OPV L’Adroit with the EOMS NG.The only system in the world capable of associating long-range infrared panoramic search and track with electro-optical gun fire control, EOMS NG provides detection, identification, and gun engagement of all surface and air targets, from anti-ship sea-skimming missiles to fast incoming attack craft (FIAC). Moreover, it is fully remote controlled from POLARIS®, the Combat Management System (CMS) developed by DCNS.

Completing the conventional radar with optronic systems makes the Gowind® OPV L’Adroit a relevant response to a more and more uncertain security context, where asymmetric threats are now to be reckoned with traditional military threats.

Heavily involved in the Gowind® adventure, Sagem has also installed one of its inertial navigation systems on board of L’Adroit. Innovative and upgradable, SIGMA 40 is based on ring-laser-gyro technology, the most suitable technology for Navy applications which already equipped 32 Navies worldwide. This is the most sold inertial system in the world.

This system offers to the Gowind® OPV L’Adroit a high level of performance and accuracy. It is compact, sturdy, and provides to the crew all the data deemed crucial to navigate including: heading, roll and pitch, angular velocities, position and heave. The crew took note of the Gowind® OPV L’Adroit comfort.
