Theon to deliver image intensifiers to German Army
The German Army is set to receive first deliveries in a 1,500-unit order for monocular image intensifier clip-ons.
The contract for Theon Deutschland was awarded in Q4 2019 by German defence procurement agency BAAINBw.
The clip-ons are used with wide and medium-range Damon devices. They will be available in two configurations and will be used across different branches of the army on a range of small arms, rifles and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, as well as machine guns and sniper rifles.
As the German subsidiary of Greece-based Theon Sensors, Theon Deutschland was established in spring 2019 to improve the company’s relationship with customers in Europe.
