With GALIX AOS, LACROIX provides a high performance and rapid self-protection solution aimed to increase vehicle survivability systems with a full range of products which offers various architectures adapted to vehicle's missions, with combat proven components. It's a global system, from detection to reaction, which works instantaneously, offers a full 360 degrees coverage and can be fitted onto any type of new generation or retrofitted vehicle (armored or unarmored).
The system is intended to detect any kind of laser threat thanks to its 4 detectors installed on each side of the vehicle with the possibility to deploy a 5th one dedicated to aerial threat. The detectors specify the kind and the direction of the laser threat. 24 launch tubes ensure a full 360 degrees coverage and the GALIX 13 ammunition provides an immediate (1 second) multiband smoke screening protection (broadband) effective during 40 seconds to 2 minutes (according to environmental conditions) and covers. A control box is integrated to the BMS and the system can be used on manual or automatic mode.
LACROIX is the special partner of the Swedish Army, for which it has equipped its Leopard 2 main battle tank version (Stridsvagn 122). The GALIX System has been in recent past delivered to middle-eastern armies. on to thousands of vehicles.
