Through this contract, Safran continues its long-standing support of Collins Aerospace and the ADF. Safran’s JIM Compact, Moskito TI and Sterna systems, along with tripods, will all be integrated by Collins Aerospace into the ADFs next-generation DTCS (Digital Terminal Control Systems).

Safran Electronics & Defense offers a wide array of portable optronic products, including state-of-the-art multi-spectral binoculars, target locators and laser rangefinders, all deployed worldwide by Joint Fires Observers (JFOs), Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs) and Special Forces. These devices feature the latest digital software functions and are compatible with standard battle management systems for dismounted combat.

Safran’s Sterna is a gyro-based target acquisition system that accurately finds true north in virtually all terrains. It will give the Australian Defence Force a brand-new capability, offering critical assistance to operators who require a high level of accuracy regardless of weather, battlespace interference or GPS-denied environments.

Michael Hall, Head of Sales & Marketing at Safran Electronics & Defense Australasia, said, “We’re very proud to deliver our suite of optronic systems to the ADF. This contract marks an important milestone for Safran Electronics & Defense, expanding our footprint for portable optronics and allowing the ADF to discover Sterna’s unrivaled capabilities. We look forward to continuing our longstanding and productive relationship with Collins Aerospace.”
