Rus­sia to pro­duce French new gen­er­a­tion ther­mal im­agers

SP's MAI - - SHOW REPORT -

Dur­ing Eurosa­tory, Rosoboronex­port and French Thales Op­tron­ics con­cluded a li­cence agree­ment for the man­u­fac­ture of Cather­ine XP new gen­er­a­tion ther­mal im­agers at the Vologda op­ti­calme­chan­i­cal plant. The two com­pa­nies also signed a con­tract for re­pairs in Rus­sia of ther­mal im­agers made by Thales Op­tron­ics.

The con­trac­tual doc­u­ments were signed on the French side by Serge Adrian, Pres­i­dent of Thales Op­tron­ics and on the Rus­sian side by Igor Sev­astyanov, Deputy Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of Rosoboronex­port. The sign­ing cer­e­mony was at­tended by Dmitri Ro­gozin, Deputy Chair­man of the Gov­ern­ment of the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion and Dmitri Shugayev, Deputy Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the Rus­sian Tech­nolo­gies State Cor­po­ra­tion.

Rus­sia brought to Eurosa­tory the mod­ernised T-90s MBT, BMPT tank sup­port com­bat ve­hi­cle, Kor­net-EM anti-tank mis­sile sys­tem based on the Tigr ar­moured car, and Ural 6X6 hard­ened truck.

“We have been par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Eurosa­tory exhibitions since 1996, but this year’s show has been spe­cial. Rus­sia has never brought such a num­ber of full-scale new items. They are from the lat­est developments that clearly demon­strate a huge po­ten­tial of the Rus­sian de­fence in­dus­try,” said Igor Sev­astyanov.
