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 theaters, including Operation Serval in Mali earlier this year.
