LACROIX to jointly showcase a broad range of launchers and dedicated munitions for ROKN* with its Korean Partners

LACROIX: to demonstrate its full offer of NAVAL Solutions designed for ROK Navy

LACROIX Defense is proud to take part in the 3rd time as an exhibitor at the MADEX 2019 exhibition, (October 22-25).

At MADEX 2019, the International Maritime Defense Industry Exhibition currently held in Busan, South Korea, the French company LACROIX is showcasing its SYLENA® family of decoy launching systems along with its next-generation “corner reflector” SEALEM® decoys.

LACROIX decoy technology has been employed for the past 25 years in the Republic of Korea Navy* amongst ROK NAVY vessels: more than 20 surface ships are fitted with the K-DAGAIE solution (Safran/Sagem launchers with LACROIX decoys). Several of those ships could be upgraded to the K-DAGAIE NG standard. Regarding new and future ROK Navy programs, as well as export programs with major Korean shipyards, LACROIX is proposing its SYLENA MK2 antimissile and anti-torpedo solutions.

Our Team will be pleased to welcome you at our booth No. F501 – French Pavilion.
