Paris, France – March 21, 2024Eviden, the Atos Group business leading in digital, cloud, big data and security, announces that it has been selected by the French defense procurement agency (Direction Générale de l’Armement – DGA) to industrialize the new P3TS (“Plug and Play Positioning and Timing System”) geolocation solution that will equip all the French Armed Forces’ defense vehicles by 2024.

P3TS is a compact, multi-constellation GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) -integrating GPS and Galileo constellations -, offering unprecedented resilience and ease of deployment. P3TS is a solution that extends tactical situational awareness to non-digitized vectors, from dismounted soldiers to army support vehicles. Information regarding position and time-stamp, which is updated in real time, is fed into the Scorpion program’s combat information system – SICS, developed by Eviden – as well as into the tactical radio, enabling the entire chain of command to gain a better understanding of the combat environment and to limit the risk of fratricidal fire, which is the prime objective of the P3TS.

Developed by the armed forces, for the armed forces, P3TS is the result of a joint innovation by the Technical section of the Armed Forces (Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre – STAT) and the DGA, supported by the Cellule Innovation Participative (CIP) of the Agence Innovation Défense (AID), which helps ministry staff develop their innovation projects..

Eviden has been commissioned by the DGA to take this sovereign solution to scale, a mandate which includes not only project management, but also the developments needed to move on to the prototyping, industrialization, deployment, and operational support phases. Eviden is working with FDC to develop an innovative satellite navigation solution, including jamming and decoy detection. This navigation solution integrates alternative navigation devices to ensure continuity of service for P3TS positioning.

We are proud to contribute to the implementation of the new geolocation system for the French army’s defense vehicles, and to support innovation in the service of our armed forces,” says Bernard PAYER, Head of BDS Mission-Critical Systems, Eviden, Atos Group.P3TS helps to limit fratricidal fire and optimize the coordination of tactical operations, and we are putting our expertize at the service of its industrialization and related developments, so that the solution can rapidly benefit all Army regiments“.
