CALP fire control system allows for automated fire control at artillery piece level by:
Improving firing accuracy and thus, firing effectiveness
Increasing positioning and fire order execution speed
Managing firing safety.
CALP can easily be integrated onto any type of self-propelled or towed piece of ordnance such as 122 mm large calibre gun or 120 mm heavy mortar, as well as multiple rocket-launcher systems (MRL).
The selection by the French Army for the renovation of its 155 mm AUF1 and 155 mm TR F1 howitzers and GIAT Industrie's selection for the fire control of the 155 mm/52 CAESAR truck-mounted howitzer underline the French Naval & Ground System's competence in this field.

Gun layer panel.
It is connected to the following terminals:
Muzzle velocity radar
Navigation and alignment unit
Tactical communications radio units

Various turret sensors.
CALP is an innovative concept based on a digitised map display of the terrain and “PMM” ballistics algorithms designed to the latest NATO standards (NABK).
