Paris-Nord Villepinte, Seine-Saint-Denis, France, 2014/06/16 - Eurosatory 2014 - The new Epsilon 10 land navigator from Sagem (Safran) has been selected by Renault Trucks Défense (RTD) for its "Battlenet Inside™" electronics suite used to digitize combat vehicles - Sagem-DS.com. PAR: SAF | SAFRAN
Sagem’s latest navigator, being unveiled at Eurosatory 2014, was developed with the help of RTD, which contributed its expertise in combat vehicles and supported the ground tests.
The Epsilon 10 is a latest-generation terrestrial land navigator, based on Sagem’s patented vibrating gyro technology. It was designed for an optimized combination of cost of ownership and performance qualities, including size, weight and power consumption. The inertial sensor contains no moving parts, giving it unrivaled robustness and reliability.
The Epsilon 10 provides heading and positioning information to the vehicle during extended periods without GPS reception. It meets the needs of armored vehicles operating in digital battlefield environments, especially through its ability to provide information to command/control systems, thus guaranteeing geo-location of targets and friend positions (Blue Force Tracking).
For Eurosatory 2014, Sagem’s Epsilon 10 has been installed in the VAB Mk3 armored vehicle and the special forces version of the Sherpa Light vehicle being displayed on RTD’s stand.
