EUROSAM’s concept of a family of systems is intended to satisfy multiple operational requirements.

EUROSAM systems have been designed for both naval and ground-launched applications. The only major differences stem from the environment in which the systems operate.

The modules have been designed for flexibility to perform short, medium and long-range missions as well for ground as for naval applications. Integration is facilitated by always being based on the same architecture: a fire control unit using multifunction phased array radar, a vertical launcher to reduce the reaction time in all directions, and a terminal active homing missile equipped with a lateral thrust system (« PIF-PAF ») to achieve direct impact or very low miss distance.
