Leonardo announced it has signed a contract with the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) to provide vehicle mission systems for the Royal Danish Army’s armored vehicles. Systems will be fitted on several platforms including the GDELS Piranha 5, GDELS Eagle IV patrol Vehicles, Wisent 2 combat engineering vehicles, KMW Leopard 2A5DK main battle tanks and BAE Systems Hägglunds CV9035DK infantry fighting vehicles. The first production order under the framework contract is expected imminently.
Most mission systems will include Leonardo’s DNVS4 night vision system, which offers both daylight colour and thermal images to enable the driver and crew of the vehicle to operate safely and in confidence both day and night and in all weather conditions. In addition to DNVS4 and the display screens Leonardo is also providing the Citadel Panoramic and Compact cameras from Copenhagen Sensor Technologies (CTC).
