LUXEMBOURG, 14 October 2020 – The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) has recently awarded a multi-million euro contract for the provision of advanced dual role weapon sights for the Danish Armed Forces. The selected dual-field-of-view combat optic provides both close quarters and precision down-range fire capability in a single optic, enabling an optimal situational awareness and unmatched low-light performance for the troops.
NSPA awarded the contract to Raytheon ELCAN Optical Technologies. The company will provide Specter DR dual field-of-view sights in both 1-4x and 1.5-6x magnifications for rifles and machine guns. NSPA has enabled the Danish Armed Forces to fully customize their sights. Deliveries will start in the first quarter of 2021.
NSPA provides acquisition and life cycle support to NATO nations through the Night Vision and Optoelectronics (NVO) Support Partnership, which currently comprises Luxembourg, Denmark, Greece and The Netherlands.
The expression "NVO" embraces a wide variety of products: stand-alone, integrated or networked thermal imaging, image intensifying, optical and laser systems used for observation, surveillance, target acquisition, aim, location or target designation including their aiming platform or control system, as well as related accessories and support equipment.
