These vehicles will be fitted with the Atos Scorpion Combat Information System (SCIS), which will replace five existing systems and enable them to share information in real time.

A consortium consisting of Nexter Systems, Renault Trucks Defense, and Thales Communications and Security are developing the Jaguar with three prototypes and one mobility test rig now being built.
