Over 100 Sagem Sigma 95 navigation systems ordered for Indian combat aircraft

Indian aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has ordered 107 Sigma 95 navigation systems kits from Sagem (Safran) for the Indian Air Force’s combat aircraft.

Developed and produced by Sagem, Sigma 95 is an autonomous hybrid inertial navigation system combining laser gyros and GPS/Glonass* satellite navigation. It ensures high-precision navigation and broad operational flexibility for both combat and special-mission aircraft.


Two-thirds of the systems in this order will be manufacturered in India by HAL, further cementing the partnership agreeement on navigation systems signed by Sagem and Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.

Sagem is a leading supplier of inertial navigation systems for Indian combat aircraft, warships and weapon systems. Nearly 500 combat aircraft deployed by the Indian air force and navy are now fitted with Sagem equipment. The systems in this latest order will join the Sigma 95 systems already in service on India’s combat aircraft.

Produced in Sagem’s Montluçon plant in the Auvergne region of south-central France, Sagem’s navigation systems are deployed on some of the world’s latest miliary aircraft, including the Rafale fighter, A400M military transport, NH90 helicopter and EC725 Caracal helicopters used by special forces.
