EO/IR Special Report: Asian armies sensitive to vehicle EO/IR needs

12th February 2018 - 12:00 GMT | by Alice Budge in London

RSS

Demand for vehicle-based EO/IR systems for surveillance and observation operations is increasing rapidly across the Asia-Pacific region.

Countries such as China, Indonesia and Singapore have embarked on efforts to increase their defence spending and invest in modernising their military capabilities. 

In particular, programmes to upgrade legacy armoured vehicles with advanced EO/IR systems have been common as armies strive to improve the accuracy of long-range missile systems and boost reconnaissance abilities.
