Electro Optic Systems Pty Ltd (EOS) and Diehl Defence GmbH & Co KG have announced the signing of a strategic agreement to facilitate greater commercial collaboration between the two companies. They will initially focus the collaboration on advanced stabilised and Remote Weapon Systems (RWS) for the European and NATO markets.
EOS is a world leading developer and manufacturer of RWS from ultra-lightweight to heavy duty stabilised platforms and Diehl Defence, which announced the news, is a technology driven privately-owned German defence company with a long tradition and excellent reputation in the European market.
EOS RWS technology offers the ability for operators to gain accurate, long range and wide area imagery of the battlespace and simultaneously deliver precise target engagement from behind protection, on the move, by day and by night. According to the press release, the precision offered by the EOS RWS technology provided to Diehl also allows for best in class engagement of moving drones by direct fire.
As part of this Cooperation Agreement, EOS is ready to transfer its technology to Diehl and a production line for RWS will be established at Diehl’s German facilities. This transfer of technology will ensure that European forces can for the first time benefit from German made Australian technology. This Agreement also facilitates the additional collaboration in Space and High Power Electro-Magnetics technologies between the two companies.
