Description: The VAMPIR NG is a cost effective third generation infrared search and track system (IRST) developed by Sagem Defense Securite for naval applications ranging from frigates to aircraft carriers. This passive surveillance and tracking system features very long-range, blue sea and littoral operation modes, suitability against symmetric and asymmetric threats, and long range identification. In littoral surveillance it provides high elevation coverage from -20 to +45 degrees and very low false alarm rate. The VAMPIR NG 3-5 micrometers thermal imager is mounted on a 3-axis gyrostabilized mount and delivers high resolution video with optical image stabilization.
The VAMPIR NG can be integrated with the ship's combat system providing surveillance and warning against a wide range of targets such as sea-skimming missiles and small high speed craft. Besides, the thermal imager can serve as helicopter landing aid, and to help control the movements of landing craft. The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) selected the VAMPIR NG for its ANZAC-class frigates in 2005 and Canberra-class amphibious assault ships and Hobart-class destroyers in October and December 2008 respectively.
