Electro Optic Systems Will Provide Remote Control Weapon System to an Unknown NATO Country
CANBERRA-based (Australia) Electro Optic Systems (EOS) has been awarded a $3.6 million (€2,4 million) contract to provide new remote weapon systems to the armed forces of a NATO country. The unnamed country, probably the Netherlands, has previously acquired EOS weapon systems. EOS will manufacture the remote weapon systems in its Australian facilities, and deliver them within 2015.

The Netherlands is probably the only one NATO country to have already buy EOS remote control weapon station. The Netherlands armed forces are equipping 17 of their Thales Australia-supplied Bushmaster mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) infantry mobility vehicles, used in Afghanistan, with Raven R-400 stabilized remote weapon stations. The weapon mounts are designated the EOS-SRWS by the Dutch (for EOS-supplied stabilized remote weapon station) and is configured with a laser rangefinder, day sight and a thermal imaging camera to be able to observe and fire in daylight as well as by night. The order represented the first sale of the Raven R-400 system, known in the U.S. military as the M101 Crows (common remotely operated weapon station), to a NATO country.
