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”.
