Copenhagen Sensor Technology signs Global Framework Agreement with Thales

Thales in the Netherlands specializes in the design and production of advanced sensors, and command and control systems for defense and security applications, in particular in the naval domain. Thales has a range of systems for which electro-optical sensor solutions are needed. In recent years, Copenhagen Sensor Technology (CST) was selected to develop and produce electro-optical sensors for two specific Thales systems. Based on the successful outcome of these development projects, CST has now been selected to sign a global framework agreement with Thales for the supply of electro-optical sensor solutions. CST has extensive expertise and a proven track record within visible band camera systems as well as the integration of sensors to a complete suite or package. Key focus is image processing resources along with speed of information flow through fiber optical transmission. CST is a leader in ruggedized electro-optical solutions with a deep know-how in the whole process from design, development, manufacturing and maintenance of electro-optical solutions – and that is why, we often are the preferred partner, when considering new electro-optical solutions. Gerben Edelijn, CEO of Thales in the Netherlands, says: “With the impressive development effort to deliver new electro-optical sensors for our Goalkeeper and Mirador systems, CST has demonstrated great expertise in the design and development of electro-optical sensors. We are looking forward to leveraging this expertise in our product portfolio.   Carsten Høiberg, CEO of Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S, says: “It is with great pleasure that CST is now able to sign a global framework agreement with Thales for the supply of electro-optical sensor systems. It is the fruit of the successful cooperation we have had with Thales for the Goalkeeper close-in weapon system and most recently the Mirador fire control system”.       For more information: Carsten Høiberg, CEO, Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S Tel: +45 51 21 83 36 Email: Frank van de Wiel Communications Manager, Thales Global Above Water Systems Tel: +31 6 3911 3344 Email:

Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S (CST) is proud to announce that we once again have been chosen by Leonardo DRS in the United States, as supplier of electro-optical solutions for its vehicle systems.
CST applies protection to combat, defense or security tasks. Strategically mounted situational awareness cameras save civilian lives and increases security for the crew. The CITADEL situational awareness cameras for CST can also be used as driver’s vision enhancement (DVE), 360° Local Situational Awareness (LSAS), and are available in many different configurations. All CITADEL cameras are designed to deliver high-performance images, even under the harshest shock and vibration conditions of metal tracked or wheeled vehicles, and in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.
Providing increased safety for the entire vehicle crew of armoured vehicles is of prime importance on the battlefield. Mounting several wide-angle cameras on strategic positions on the vehicle provides an unobstructed view over the near surroundings, with all hatches closed.
CST and Leonardo DRS have a long history of collaboration, and that is why CST has been chosen to provide electro-optical sensor solutions from our CITADEL series to their vehicle systems.
