THEON Sensors has been awarded a contract for the supply of THERMIS CS thermal imaging systems following a recent international tender by the Ministry of Defence for the procurement and support of Sniper In-Line Low Light System (SILLS) – Long Wave InfraRed (LWIR) Thermal Sight Weapon Sight 2.

The initial order includes the delivery of 500 units THERMIS CS within 2022, with options to procure additional units to be delivered by THEON SENSORS over the life of the contract in collaboration with its UK based partner Active Electronics.

The firm said the following:

“The design and development of THEON SENSORS thermal imaging systems allow multiple platform capability (found on man portable, vehicular, aerial-drones) that result on high-end product families. THEON SENSORS night vision and thermal imaging products are currently fielded by the majority of the NATO End Users providing cross-operational capability and overhaul support on today’s overdemanding collaborative environment.”

Dr. Michalis Kolotos, 5EYES Armies Business Development & US Operations Director for THEON SENSORS, was quoted by the firm as saying:

“We are honored by the trust and selection of the UK MoD. THEON SENSORS is determined to empowering overmatch through its Thermal Imaging – THERMIS Clip-On Sight (12um) solution for the UK operators. This contract follows an earlier award by the Canadian Armed Forces for the DAMON (NV) and THERMIS (TI) clip-on solutions for a similar Sniper Program, as well as sales of thermal imaging systems in European and Far Eastern countries.”

Not exciting, not classy, not “ooooooh” but essential kit which enables the blokes at the lowest denominator, on the ground, to crack on with their job, identify, classify and engage in conditions which would be unheard off many moons ago.

500 is a good start. Nice to see IR night sights becoming smaller and cheaper. I hope all the components come from UK manufacturers.
