Manufacturing News

Space, communications and defence manufacturer Electro Optic Systems has announced two contracts to sell its R400 remote weapons systems (RWS) which can be operated from inside an armoured vehicle.

The two contracts, worth $4.5 million, are with two, unnamed, European NATO countries.

The Canberra company said a number of the systems were optimised for fitting to remotely operated combat vehicles and include remote control units to operate the systems.

Both contracts will be delivered in 2020.

The company said: “EOS RWS products are well suited to the emerging market for remotely operated combat vehicles because of their market leading accuracy, reliability and light weight.”

EOS is participating in a number of tenders for remotely operated combat vehicles across multiple countries with a sales pipeline of $1 billion.

“Major awards are possible in the next 12 months.”
