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 performance upgrade for all missions with the well-proven VECTOR. Brilliant optics and far range join a non-magnetic high precision azimuth. Typical application: Forward Observer/Forward Air Controller, Joint Tactical Air Controller.
Important: STERNA and VECTOR are subject to Swiss export control.
