Drawing on Sagem’s proven expertise in navigation systems and inertial sensors, the SIGMA 30 features large digital ring laser gyro technology. Its performance characteristics make it a perfect solution for today’s artillery. Enabling deployment in distributed configurations, the Sigma 30 system enhances the mobility and protection of support forces. It is mounted on the cannon, and offers totally independent operation, protected from enemy countermeasures.

The SIGMA 30 system contributes to the excellent operational results of CAESAR guns deployed by the French army in today’s most demanding theaters, including Afghanistan and, most recently, Mali, for Operation Serval.

The contract announced today consolidates Sagem’s partnership with Nexter Systems for the CAESAR gun, by bringing the advantages of latest-generation inertial systems to the company’s entire range of combat vehicles, whether in production or under development. All CAESAR artillery systems now in service, more than 250 units, are equipped with the SIGMA 30 navigation and pointing system. They are produced at Sagem’s Montluçon plant.

In addition to CAESAR guns, Sagem’s SIGMA 30 system outfits 40 other artillery systems, including: PzH2000 (Krauss Maffei Wegmann), MLRS M270 (Airbus Defense), Nora (SDPR), Archer (BAE), and the 2R2M mobile mortar (Thales).

This howitzer, consisting of a 155 mm / 52 calibre gun mounted onto 6x6 chassis, combines fire power and amazing mobility. In this respect and due to its extreme versatility, CAESAR® is an alternative to heavy versions such as heavy tracked or wheeled self-propelled artillery systems. Fitted with up-to-date equipment and functionalities, CAESAR® strikes accurately and effectively at long range.

Out of more than 250 units already ordered, 180 CAESAR® units are already in service in three countries. The French Army deployment in Afghanistan (ISAF), in Lebanon (UNIFIL), and recently in Mali, illustrates the "combat proven" nature of the CAESAR®.
