Thales VIGILE 300 is part of a family of latest generation Electronic Support Measures (ESM) systems tailored for all Naval platforms, both surface and submarine
The VIGILE 300 system offers high sensitivity, wideband detection of all emitters in the E-J radar bands. The wide-open architecture provides 360° coverage and 100% probability of intercept. Furthermore, the system provides an ELINT function, enabling detailed analysis of intra-pulse characteristics.
VIGILE 300 adds to the core system, VIGILE 100, by addition of a set of phase interferometer antennas, providing a very high accuracy Direction Finding capability in the E-J frequency band.
The system provides real-time, multiple, instantaneous, radar acquisition handling up to 500 tracks. Also, adaptable library generation by flexible programming and “on-task” modification / updating capability to maximise the ability to cope with new tactical situations is provided.
When coupled with the Scorpion 2 ECM, this system provides a powerful EW suite capable of responding to any radar threat with very low-latency.
