APX builds on the existing Outfit UAT
Mod 1 standard: information published
by Thales suggests that the system architecture incorporates the Minerva
de-interleaving processor, and the Thorondir emitter identification system (an
export equivalent to Palantir).

Thales in France offers the Vigile
ESM/ELINT systems family, which covers the whole range of requirements for
surface and underwater platforms, from
the LightWeight (LW) version specifically designed for small platforms to the
"400" model which provides advanced
ELINT functions.
The LW version is a low-cost RESM
system purpose-designed for passive
networked maritime and coastal surveillance operations. Leveraging the
company's pulse deinterleaving and
signal processing technologies already
applied to the Vigile family, the LW has
been designed to match the surveillance
requirements of paramilitary and constabulary agencies, with an emphasis on
situational awareness and networking
to build a complete maritime picture.
Covering 2-18 GHz and offering near 100
per cent probability of intercept (POI)
with maximum pulse density of 1 MPPS,
Vigile LW is able to track up to 200 simultaneous targets, according to the
company. Its lightweight dual-antenna
unit weighs less than 10 kg at the masthead, while processing is conducted on
ruggedized commercial PC hardware,
with results displayed on a laptop or
multifunction console. ESM information
also can be overlaid in a standard radar display. The Vigile LW is fitted on
the Marine Nationale's (French Navy's)
L'Adroit OPV in a suite together with the
Thales Altesse CESM system.
Vigile 100 is the core system of the
family, offering high sensitivity, wideband detection in the E-J radar bands
and 360-degree coverage, in addition to
an ELINT function, enabling detailed
analysis of intra-pulse characteristics.
Vigile 100 provides real-time, multiple,
instantaneous, radar acquisition handling up to 500 tracks. Thales has provided the Vigile 100 as part of the EW
