STERNA + MOSKITO

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. Call for fire during day or night OPS with this lightweight configuration (<4 kg / 9 lbs).

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.

Increase the safety and efficiency of your calls for fire

The STERNA built-in capability will help the operator optimize the safety zone and decrease the risks of collateral damage. In addition, the high degree of precision of the STERNA will help the operator reach out for a higher accuracy when calling for fire, improving the probability of getting the first round on target.

Important: STERNA and MOSKITO are subject to Swiss export control.
