Safran has recorded the 250th order for its Vigy Observer optronic system during Euronaval 2016
 
Safran Electronics & Defense has chalked up a record order volume for its Vigy Observer naval optronic system, now standing at 250 units. Vigy Observer is a light, panoramic, multi-sensor shipboard optronic system. It is operated from a touch terminal and includes a cooled infrared imager, video channels and a laser rangefinder.

The company reached this milestone thanks to a recent export order from a navy that wants to use this technology on several dozen fast attack craft for commando forces. Ten navies worldwide have now ordered the Vigy Observer system.

Employing advanced stabilization techniques, the Vigy Observer provides clear images day or night, including in rough seas and at speeds exceeding 50 knots. There is also a Vigy Engage version, which adds a fire control function for light weapons. The Vigy Observer is recognized worldwide for its robustness, high-quality images, ease of use, compact design, light weight and easy integration.

Capable of detecting targets out to a range of 16 kilometers and more, Vigy Observer will provide a decisive advantage in the asymmetrical environments where fast attack craft are deployed: protection of ports and infrastructures, maritime police, anti-terrorist and anti-piracy combat. The system is well suited to government actions at sea, including coast guards, fast attack craft and ocean-going patrol boats. It provides invaluable assistance in missions designed to protect fishing and economic zones, navigation aid, and assistance to ships and crews at sea.

Vigy Observer is a highly cost-effective system, since Safran used proven technologies in its design: infrared binoculars, image processing and gyrostabilized turrets for combat vehicles.

Safran’s optronic systems are used on some of today’s most modern warships, including the Charles-de-Gaulle aircraft carrier, Mistral BPC amphibious assault ships, Canberra helicopter carriers and Hobart destroyers (Australia), European Aquitaine and Horizon class frigates and Baynunah corvettes (United Arab Emirates). Safran supplies key systems and equipment to over 600 surface ships from around the world.
