BEL has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sagem to explore co-operation in the production and supply of Navigational sensors like periscope, Inertial Navigational System and optronic mast to the Indian Navy.
In another announcement made, BEL and Photonis are going to implement technology to manufacture state-of-the-art XR 5 Image Intensifier Tubes with a Figure of Merit (FOM) between 1600 and 2000. These tubes will be manufactured at BELOP (a subsidiary of BEL), Pune, where XD 4 grade Image intensifier Tubes upto FOM 1600 with autogating are already being manufactured through a ToT from Photonis.
BEL has also signed an agreement with Elbit Systems for a licensed collaborated manufacturing and D-Level Maintenance of Compact Multi-Purpose Advanced Stabilized System (CoMPASS) under the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Program.
The CoMPASS is a day-and-night surveillance system that includes a colour TV daylight camera, 3rd Generation 3-5 µm Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) sensor, Laser Target Designator and Range Finder (LTDRF) and automatic tracking capabilities, as well as command and control capabilities. It is distinguished by a wide variety of interfaces, enabling integration with various aircraft / helicopter systems, such as Mission Computer, fire control, radar, GPS, data downlink and helmet-mounted tracking systems. Its small dimensions, low weight, high level of stabilisation and coverage angles make it an optimal choice for long-range, day-and-night surveillance, target tracking, fire control applications and search and rescue.
