These armed, helicopter-carrier patrol boats displace more than 3,300 metric tons, and will be fitted with Sagem's SIGMA 40 laser gyro navigation systems.

Developed and produced by Sagem, the SIGMA 40 is a laser-gyro inertial system designed to guarantee high-precision navigation even in the harshest environments. A completely standalone unit, the SIGMA 40 contributes to the effectiveness of shipborne systems and also to the success of even the most demanding missions assigned to warships.

The Royal Norwegian Navy chose Sagem's SIGMA 40 system because of its excellent sustained performance under the country's specific maritime conditions: fjords, inclement weather, ice, etc. Another decisive factor in its selection was the Sigma 40's long-term resistance to shocks. The SIGMA 40 is in fact one of the few shipborne navigation systems that comply with shock resistance specifications in the military standard MIL-S 901 D.

This latest contract further consolidates Sagem's 20-year partnership on navigation systems with the Royal Norwegian Navy, also underpinned by consulting services provided to the navy. Sagem's SIGMA 40 XP system was also selected by the Norwegian navy for the modernization of six ULA class submarines, starting in 2008.

The SIGMA 40 navigation system is now used on more than 500 surface naval vessels and 75 submarines, especially the latest and most innovative front-line ships, such as the European FREMM and Horizon frigates, the Mistral class amphibious assault ship and the Korean LPX Dokdo amphibious helicopter-carrier. The SIGMA 40XP version of the system was chosen for the conventional Scorpène class submarines built by French naval shipyard DCNS, the modernization of the navigation systems on the Amethyst class nuclear attack submarines, and the upcoming Barracuda class submarines.

Sagem understands and applies all inertial technologies: mechanical, laser, fiber-optic, vibrating. It has over 60 years of experience in making navigation systems for civil and military applications, deployed worldwide.

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.
