PARIS (BNS): France-based defence company Sagem of the Safran group has delivered the Sigma 30 artillery navigation and pointing systems for the Indian Army's Pinaka multiple launch rocket systems.

The first two regiments of the Indian Army deploying the indigenous Pinaka multi-barrel rocket launchers will be equipped with the new artillery systems, the company announced.

Sagem has also set up a maintenance facility near New Delhi to help the Indian Army upkeep the Sigma 30 systems. Indian mechanics have received specialised training for the system in both France and India, the company said.

The Sigma 30 is a laser gyro land navigation and pointing system for artillery pieces. It has been designed for highly accurate firing on short notice. The system can also be fitted in howitzers, mortars and light guns besides multiple rocket launchers.
