PARIS (BNS): The French defence procurement agency (DGA) has chosen the new-generation ballistic computer offered by Sagem to outfit all control stations in the French army’s Atlas artillery system.

The company will deliver more than 100 of these computers.The outstanding technical quality of the product was the decisive factor in winning the contract for this programme, designated CADET 2G, according to Sagem (Safran group).

Sagem’s computer will determine fire control solutions for 155mm artillery pieces and mortars, as primary or backup control for the Atlas system, as well as during force projection missions.

CADET 2G will provide deployment of artillery pieces as a battery; management of technical and tactical firing data; determination of firing solutions; ballistic calculations (NATO methods or firing tables); fire control and adjustment.

The CADET 2G solutions intended for French artillery was directly derived from the Storm FCC (Fire Control Computer), a new Sagem product developed to meet artillery and mortar firing requirements in international markets.

Designed according to NATO standards, the Storm family is available in three different versions - Storm FCC stand-alone computers for control stations, Storm FCS (Fire Control System) for gun fire control, as original equipment or retrofit, Storm FMS (Fire Management System) for tactical systems.
