These drones will be delivered in 2015.

The Sperwer tactical drone system was deployed in Afghanistan from 2003 to 2012 by three members of NATO : Canada, the Netherlands and France. In the French army, the Sperwer tactical drones system is operated by the 61st Artillery Regiment, which successfully deployed it in this theater from November 2008 to June 2012 for protection, intelligence and ground support missions. (*)

The drones to be produced for this latest contract will involve Sagem’s Dijon and Poitiers plants for the optronic sensors, the Fougères plant for the printed circuit boards, and the Montluçon plant for the flight control and navigation systems, as well as integration of the drones. A number of other companies in France also provide subassemblies for these drones. Thanks to this solid industrial network, Sagem can provide ongoing support for the French army’s Sperwer drones up to and beyond 2017.

Based on the company’s extensive experience with the Sperwer system, Sagem is now developing the Patroller™ long-endurance tactical drone system to meet the French army’s future needs, as well as for international markets.

Sagem offers the full range of in-house technological capabilities needed to develop and produce a state-of-the-art drone system: gyrostabilized day-night optronic sensors, inertial navigation, avionics, data links, the ground segment (control stations, image processing, mission planning and restitution, etc.), integration, flight certification and flight testing of systems and payloads, etc.

Sagem has produced over 25 complete tactical drone systems to date, and 150 aircraft for these systems.

(*) In recognition of these missions, the 61st Artillery Regiment received the cross of military valor (Croix de la valeur militaire) during a ceremony in Hôtel des Invalides (Paris) on November 20, 2013.

Sagem (sagem-ds.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 7,500 people in Europe, Southeast Asia and North America. Sagem is the commercial name of the company Sagem Défense Sécurité.
