Fire control systems – high quality customized sensors reduce cost and risk for the customer

CST’s sensor delivers best stay on target with high boresight accuracy for fire control systems. Our long-range camera system is bore-sighted to achieve a precision of 0.1-0.2 mrad boresight retention @NFOV at a temperature range from -40°C to +70°C


CST is the preferred manufacturer of optronics to major vendors of fire control systems such as Thales, Navantia and SaaB

Open Frame

Our fire control system cameras are also available as open frame solutions and are designed to make it easy for system integrators to integrate CST high-end cameras in large systems for surveillance, security, defense or other entities.

The open frame cameras entail sensor, optics and camera controller, for our customers to easily integrate in their own EO-system. The open frame cameras are within the visible band, to operate during day and down to half moonlight conditions and are operational at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.

Housed Solution

Our fire control system cameras are also available as open Housed Solutions and are designed to make it easy for system integrators to integrate CST high-end cameras in large systems for surveillance, security, defense or other entities.

The housed solution cameras entail sensor, optics and camera controller, for our customers to easily integrate in their own EO-system. The housed cameras are within the visible band, to operate during day and down to half moonlight conditions and are operational at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +70°C.

Custom & OEM solutions

CST is a company with a long tradition of working closely with its customers, identifying unmet requirements, and creating solutions with sustainable value for the users.


With a strong R&D base at the headquarters in Denmark, CST can provide mechanical, optical, software and hardware customizations while meeting the toughest requirements for military, homeland security, and high-end surveillance applications. Whether it is just a ruggedized high-precision zoom lens, a camera, or a complete system comprising lens, camera and advanced video processing, CST can offer a fast-track design process.


In addition to the customized products, CST offer a range of standard products designed specifically for integration directly into 3rd party equipment. This is in many cases a cost-effective alternative to customized products.

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: ch@copst.com Frank van de Wiel Communications Manager, Thales Global Above Water Systems Tel: +31 6 3911 3344 Email: frank.vandewiel@nl.thalesgroup.com
