Safran Vectronix AG

STERNA + JIM Family

Non-Magnetic Based Target Acquisition System

Safran Vectronix’ STERNA provides True North capabilities, 24/7, in virtually all terrain and weather conditions. STERNA operates independently and does not require the operator to carry any support resources to directly determine True North. STERNA can operate in a GPS-denied environment and will not be disturbed if used right by a heavy armored vehicle. It will also operate in a hardened concrete environment, such as indoors in a heavy urban terrain.

The extreme lightweight all-rounder. The compact multi-functional thermal imager JIM LR makes a congenial partner to the STERNA TNF. Mission accomplished: 24-Hours accurate target location under the worst weather and environmental conditions. Typical application: Forward Observer/Forward Air Controller, Joint Tactical Air Controller

All Information

Anytime, anywhere

Vectronix STERNA provides True North capabilities, 24/7, in virtually all terrain and weather conditions. STERNA operates independently and does not require the operator to carry any support resources to directly determine True North. STERNA can operate in a GPS denied environment and will not be disturbed if used right by a heavy armoured vehicle. It will also operate in a hardened concrete environment, such as indoors in a heavy urban terrain.

Excellent accuracy

Based on known or surveyed reference points, the system achieves consistently an accuracy of better than 1 mil  at any latitude. If reference points are not usable, the STERNA will use its internal gyroscope to determine the True north. That accuracy is typically of 2 mil, up to ~ 60°, and typically 3 mil at 65°.

Using reference points gives a typical TLE95 of less than 6 m at 1.3 km. That makes STERNA a CAT-I capable system at that range – with all Vectronix payloads.

Important: STERNA and JIM are subject to Swiss export control. JIM is subject to French export control.
