French DGA Selects Safran for SSBN Navigation System
Posted: 2017 Jan 11
 
Safran Electronics & Defence has been chosen by the French defense procurement agency DGA to design, develop and build an improvedversion of its global navigation system that is currently in use on the nation’s Triomphant class ballistic missile nuclear submarines (SNLE).
 
The new version will eliminate the need for electrostatically suspended gyroscopes (ESG), which were traditionally used for navigation on strategic platforms and makes use of extensive user feedback on the current laser gyro-based navigation systems. 
 
The new system will deliver higher performance over the present system that is in use. 
 
The inertial navigation systems for over 500 surface ships worldwide and more than 70 nuclear and conventional submarines, have been supplied by Safran till date. 
 
Several modern front-line units are equipped with Safran's navigation systems,including the new Barracuda class nuclear attack submarines.
