Avionics systems and equipment from Sagem (Safran group) are in service with armed forces all over the world
Inertial navigation units developed by Sagem supply precise aircraft navigation and position data. They also form the core of the “nav/attack” system in combat aircraft, providing the precise data needed for fire control and weapon release. Operational missions require detailed planning using ground-based computer systems before flight plan and mission data can be uploaded to onboard computers.
Sagem also offers complete avionics upgrade packages as part of combat aircraft modernization programs.

An inertial navigation unit comprises a set of accelerometers and gyros, which are used to determine the speed and attitude of an aircraft, and hence its position and trajectory, with an extremely high degree of precision
