Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France:

 

iXblue, a French company specialized in the design, development and manufacturing of state-of-the-art equipment dedicated to navigation, positioning and imaging for the military market, is launching Leos, a stabilized platform for tactical payloads embedded on armored vehicles.

 

Leveraging its recognized expertise in mechatronics for motion systems, iXblue has designed Leos, the POS series’ latest system, to meet today’s needs for loading modular optronic payloads, especially – but not only – on a commander’s panoramic sights, which requires high levels of stabilization.

 

Embarking with payloads of more than 15kg, iXblue’s Leos enables very accurate two-axis gyrostabilization and pointing features. The new system is extremely robust to shock, which makes it particularly convenient for severe mechanical environments, including weapon firing. It is very compact, can suit all communication protocols, and is easy to integrate and adapt to new payloads. It offers a high level of reliability and a low cost of ownership thanks to the low maintenance requirements over time. Depending on the situation, Leos can be offered as a turnkey solution or it can be customized to the specific needs of the customer.

 

This new offering is based on iXblue’s high levels of expertise and customer proximity. Considered a major player in inertial navigation systems for the past 15 years, iXblue has established and maintained a major position in the defense market, relying on its core values: Expertise & Trust.

 

Bruno Protte, iXblue Business Development Manager, comments: “These values are essential for establishing successful partnerships. Based on its 30 years of experience, iXblue can count on its experts’ mastery of technology and French know-how to provide highly reliable mechatronics solutions. This high level of expertise goes hand in hand with trust.”

Technical proximity with the integrator, a precise understanding of specific needs and the personalization of an offering, these are the keys for a lasting relationship between iXblue and its customers.

 

With Leos, iXblue is once again affording optronics industry players the space to improve the mobility and accuracy of their tactical systems, boost their observation and targeting capabilities and enhance their situation awareness. iXblue’s committed and agile teams work hard to offer lasting and customized solutions, helping the best armed forces in the world carry out their day-to-day operations in the most efficient and safe ways possible.

 

Bruno Protte asserts: “More than just a supplier, iXBlue stands as a trusted partner to every customer”.
