Night Vision Reserve Sight and Barrel Camera
Senop Oy has received an order for the development of night vision sensors for the Finnish CV9030 IFV fleet, the company announced on 1 October. Earlier this summer, the Finnish MoD announced that the fleet will be upgraded over the next several years: this order forms part of the CV9030 mid-life extension.
Senop is responsible for development of the reserve sight and barrel camera. “With [this] order, Senop’s product portfolio will grow with two new products, which will also open up completely new business opportunities in the future. This order shows that we have the know-how and competence to develop and manufacture sensors for heavy military vehicles, such as main battle tanks and infantry fighting vehicles,” commented Senop’s Managing Director, Aki Korhonen. He emphasises that this development work will be done in close cooperation with the CV9030 FIN end-users.
Senop builds new capabilities by tailoring solutions to customer’s specific needs and requirements. The company’s defence and security portfolio consists of high-performance image intensifiers, night sights, intelligent thermal sights, handheld target acquisition and observation systems, vehicle camera systems, hyperspectral cameras, and multipurpose container-based platform solutions.
