Drawing on feedback from users of its products in remote theaters of operations, Safran Electronics & Defense is launching VIGY 4, a new optronic sight for surface ships, to meet the needs and expectations of naval customers. 

VIGY 4 features advanced observation and fire control capabilities to meet the requirements of medium-displacement ships such as offshore patrol vessels and corvettes.

This sight is the latest addition to the company’s family of naval optronic systems, which also includes the VIGY HD, which is more suited to vessels such as coastal patrol boats, and the PASEO XLR for first-class vessels rang.

The compact gyrostabilized multisensor observation system has a Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) channel, which can see through mist and fog. The system can be coupled with a sector surveillance module to create a simple and effective surveillance system. It is also designed to control light- and medium-caliber weapons.
