DSEi Exhibition, London, September 8, 2009
Sagem (Safran group) has just completed two key phases in its soldier modernization programs in Great Britain and France, with a major contract announced today for FIST via its Swiss subsidiary Vectronix AG and the successful completion of technical/operational evaluations for the FELIN system.

FIST – Future Integrated Soldier Technology (United Kingdom).
Vectronix AG has been selected by Thales UK to supply the UK’s Ministry of Defense with 2 700 Moskito multifunction rangefinders and 2 300 Rapid Acquisition Aiming Modules (RAAMs)(1), plus related logistical support. The contracts combined total 60 million euros(2).

FELIN – Fantassin à Equipements et Liaisons Intégrés (Integrated Dismounted Soldier System) (France).
The FELIN system successfully completed its technical/operational evaluation campaign in July. Three French army regiments tested it for six months in all types of combat and environments (urban and airborne combat, mountains, tropical forest and deserts). This success means equipment already ordered for six regiments (6 134 systems) can now be mass produced, with the goal of supplying France with the planned 22 588 systems by 2014. In Switzerland, Sagem is in charge of all optronic equipment for IMESS (Integriertes Modulares Einsatzsystem Schweizer Soldat, or Integrated Modular Soldier System) awarded this year-end 2007 by armasuisse to EADS Defense & Security, with Sagem as the main partner.
