Senop to provide night vision systems for CAVS
Senop has signed a framework agreement with fellow Finnish company Patria to supply driver night vision systems for installation aboard the 6x6 Common Armoured Vehicle System (CAVS) APC.
‘The agreement includes a purchase order which secures the continuation of already ongoing deliveries of Senop driver’s Night Vision Systems to all Latvian APCs and Finnish pre-series vehicles,’ Senop announced on 9 February.
The framework agreement also enables deliveries to future participants in the CAVS programme.
Senop also recently announced a deal with Saab to provide advanced thermal imaging sights for the Carl-Gustaf M4 shoulder-fired 84mm recoilless anti-tank weapon.
