The French armed forces have awarded Sagem—a producer of gyro-stabilized optronic systems for military helicopters—a five-year contract for life-cycle support of observation and sighting systems on army Tiger HAP combat and fire support helicopters.

Tiger HAP helicopters use the STRIX turret-mounted, gyro-stabilized system that provides the aircrafts’ crews with observation capabilities and target acquisition for the aircraft's 30mm cannons, rockets and missiles.

Sagem’s STRIX and OSIRIS sighting and observation systems are used on all French Tiger helicopters, and at least 50 STRIX systems are covered under the award.

In addition to France, the STRIX and OSIRIS systems are used by the armed forces of Germany, Spain and Australia.
