Lacroix's participation

This year the Lacroix Defense team will once again be exhibiting at the LAAD exhibition, in the French Naval Pavilion. Meet us at Booth T26, Hall 2.

Product Focus


Regarding the naval market in the Latin American region, we will be presenting our cutting-edge, compact SYLENA MK2 decoy launching system, which ensures superior platform protection.

Over the last 10 years, our Research & Development team has developed 3 new Decoy Launching Systems [#DLS] to meet Navies' requirements throughout the world.
We will be at your disposal to discuss other naval solutions (SYLENA LW, MK 1, MK2 decoy launcher, EM/IR/Anti-torpedoes ammunition, etc.) and to provide information regarding our range of capabilities to protect all kinds of vessels (fast attack craft, OPV, OCV, frigates, etc.).


During the LAAD 2017 exhibition, LACROIX will be specially showcasing the GALIX AOS (Automated Obscuration System) along with the demo model unveiled at Eurosatory:  from detection to reaction - using green NT8 munitions - to protect all types of land platforms (MBT, AMV, APC, LAV, etc.).
Regarding the Brazilian project for the modernization of defence systems and equipments, and further to the success it has met in the Middle Eastern markets, LACROIX will demonstrate the Galix AOS' effectiveness to meet the requirements of the Guarani program.

Other Activities

Our team will also be at your disposal to discuss LACROIX's advanced solutions in airborne countermeasures (fighter jets, helicopters, large transport aircraft, etc.) as well as its training solutions & systems for Land Forces (training & simulation ammunition, SPYTFIRE realistic training system, etc.).
