Sagem Awarded Contract To Study Future Military Communications Network

by Staff Writers
Paris, France (SPX) Feb 26, 2007
Sagem Defense Securite (SAFRAN Group) has just signed a contract with France's defense procurement agency (DGA, Delegation Generale pour l'Armement) to prepare the future armed forces network, SOCRATE NG. As the prime contractor, Sagem Defense Securite will operate within a consortium comprised of Sagem Communication (SAFRAN Group), SECOSYS, C2 Innovativ' Systems and Morgan Conseil.

Following the study (within a year), the consortium will submit a technical and financial proposal for the design of SOCRATE NG to the DGA, with deployment scheduled for circa 2010. The solution will aim to provide high-speed end-to-end service, while taking into account security and availability constraints. It will also offer the best service in terms of the human, technical and financial aspects.

Capable of operating in all conditions (i.e. peacetime, wartime and during crises), SOCRATE NG will contain an interservice transit network and service networks for the three armed forces. This study also seeks to analyze the role of the DIRISI (Department of Infrastructure Networks and Information Systems) - the Ministry of Defense's new joint service - in running SOCRATE NG.
