French Ministry of Defence Awards GIAT and TDA a Contract for Precision Improvement of Artillery Systems

Category: Contracts

LONDON -- French DGA recently awarded to Giat and TDA a second contract for development of the artillery precision improvement system called SPACIDO. The first phase was awarded in November 2003.

By this new order, France confirms again its will to equip Land Forces with SPACIDO system at short term. In order to improve the precision of all existing 105 and 155 mm artillery systems, Giat and TDA have devised a course correction device called SPACIDO. This inventive system, fully autonomous, and independent from any positionning system as GPS, allows range precision enhancement by a coefficient 4, resulting in an extensive reduction of artillery life cycle costs.
