Lacroix promotes Galix self-protection system for Brazil's Guarani Program
For over 30 years, Lacroix has been supplying self-protection systems to land forces around the world. These systems, known as GALIX, equip thousands of platforms (Leopard 2, BMP3, Leclerc tank, AMX 10, Fuchs, M113, Piranha, CV90, etc.). An enhanced version, the GALIX AOS (Automated Obscuration System) is now proposed for the Guarani Program, which will provide Brazilian Armed Forces with new 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 armored vehicles.

The effectiveness of GALIX and its munitions resides in its capacity to mask vehicles for threat protection (laser designator, laser beam rider, laser range finder, thermal camera, etc.) in not only the visible range, but in laser and infrared (0.4-14 microns).

These systems can be installed on any type of land platforms: MBT, BMP, LAV, 4x4, 6x6, 8x8, etc.

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.
