Sagem's MATIS thermal imagers chosen for Infantry fighting vehicles in South Africa

Sagem (Safran) was awarded a major contract by Denel Land Systems to supply thermal imagers for South Africa’s Badger Infantry fighting vehicles.

Sagem will supply three types of MATIS infrared imagers to equip different versions of the Badger Infantry vehicles. These vehicles will be fitted with different configuration turrets including 30 mm main weapon as well as antitank missiles.

Sagem designed the MATIS family of thermal imagers to meet the most demanding operational needs of combat platforms for armies, navies and air forces. These imagers offer the capabilities needed to carry out observation, reconnaissance, identification and engagement missions to a range of several kilometers. The Sagem MATIS imager is easy to integrate in turret-mounted weapon systems and has high performance proven during field testing.

These MATIS imagers will be produced at the Sagem plant in Poitiers (France).

As part of the industrial participation programme in South Africa, Sagem has partnered with a local South African company (Afrimeasure) which will handle part of the final imager integration, along with testing and through-life maintenance in South Africa.

As the European leader in optronic systems and equipment, Sagem has already produced more than 6,000 MATIS thermal imagers for major weapon systems in France and international markets. - See more at:
