ULIS wins contract from Sagem Défense Sécurité

Share this on social media:

ULIS, a manufacturer of uncooled thermal sensors for civilian and military applications, has signed a five-year contract with Sagem Défense Sécurité as a primary source of supply for major weapon sights, handheld equipment and military programs for cameras, including the French army's Future Infantry Soldier System (FELIN).

Uncooled thermal sensors, known as microbolometers, will be used to fit the thermal imaging rifle sights, multifunction goggles and cameras for day and night operation and improved target acquisition.

'ULIS is delighted to be a major source delivering high performance products to Sagem Défense Sécurité,' said Jean-François Delepau, managing director of ULIS. 'The fact that we successfully passed extremely stringent qualification tests confirms that ULIS's technology is also highly suitable for military applications.'

Under the agreement, ULIS will deliver its uncooled 384 x 288 - 25µm microbolometers, with the first delivery due at the end of the year. The contract also provides for an extension to supply other higher performance uncooled infrared products, such as the 640 x 480 - 25 micron and the 1024 x 768 - 17µm microbolometers.
