Following an international call for tenders, the U.S Coast Guard has chosen Sagem (Safran) to contribute to the modernization of the navigation systems on its Reliance class medium endurance cutters (WMEC) (1). According to the terms of this contract, the 14 Reliance class vessels will be fitted with Sagem's BlueNaute attitude and heading reference system.

This latest contract further confirms the US Coast Guard's confidence in Sagem's navigation solutions, since it had already chosen the BlueNaute unit in April for ten Juniper class seagoing buoy tenders (WLB).

The new-generation BlueNaute navigation unit is based on the innovative Hemispherical Resonator Gyro (HRG) technology.

A real technological breakthrough, the HRG-based inertial core in the BlueNaute system offers a competitive advantage over previous-generation inertial technologies (mechanical or fiber-optic gyros), in terms of both total cost of ownership and performance. The HRG in the BlueNaute unit, a proprietary Sagem solution, ensures very high attitude and heading precision.

Sagem's BlueNaute unit also features outstanding reliability, with mean time between failures (MTBF) exceeding 100,000 hours. Because of the HRG, this system perfectly matches the emerging needs of maritime navigation, in line with the requirements of the International Maritime Organization and the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) treaty. Its performance characteristics make it perfectly suited to maritime applications, from scientific research vessels and offshore support ships, to coast guard and maritime police forces.

The BlueNaute unit is produced by Sagem at its Montluçon plant in the Auvergne region of France.

A world leader in navigation systems, Sagem has built up more than 60 years of expertise in civil and military navigation systems for all environments: land, air, sea and space..

1 The US Coast Guard's Reliance class medium-endurance cutters (WMEC) have a displacement of 1,145 tons at full load and are 64 meters long (210'). Offering an endurance of six to seven weeks, they are assigned to fight against illegal trafficking, anti-pollution monitoring, fishery protection and at-sea rescue missions.

Sagem (sagem.com), a high-tech company of Safran, holds world or European leadership positions in optronics, avionics, electronics and safety-critical software for both civil and military markets. Sagem is the No. 1 company in Europe and No. 3 worldwide for inertial navigation systems (INS) used in air, land and naval applications. It is also the world leader in helicopter flight controls and the European leader in optronics and tactical UAV systems. Operating across the globe through the Safran group, Sagem and its subsidiaries employ 7,600 people in Europe, Pacific Asia, North America and south America. Sagem is the commercial name of the company Sagem Défense Sécurité.
