News The Finnish Defence Forces and Senop Oy signed a letter of intent on the development of image intensifiers and laser sights

The Defence Forces Logistics Command and Senop have signed a letter of intent on the development of weapon-mounted laser sights and helmet-mounted image intensifiers for soldiers. The letter of intent was signed at the Logistics Command Headquarters in Tampere on 22 May 2019.

News Aki Korhonen appointed new CEO of Senop Oy

Aki Korhonen, MSc (Tech.), has been appointed as CEO of Millog’s subsidiary, Senop Oy. He will start in his new position on 28 November 2018. Korhonen is transferring from Valmet, where he was Director of Analysers, Measurements and Performance Solutions. Aki has lengthy experience in international managerial positions in the automation industry.

Korhonen will join Senop as the company expands into international markets. Senop’s container integration business is already highly international.

These products include a hyperspectral camera, and image intensifiers and laser designators that harness next-generation freeform technology. Under its new CEO, Senop will proactively develop its global network of representatives and further enhance its product portfolio.

“The Finnish Defence Forces will continue to be Senop’s most important customer and R&D partner. Our long-standing and close cooperation with the Finnish Defence Forces has led Senop to produce some of the best-suited products for the defence and security sector,” says Sami Pitkänen, Chairman of Senop’s Board of Directors.

Aki Korhonen believes that the quality, reliability and high-tech nature of Senop’s products will create a firm foundation for expanding international operations in the defence and security sector. Senop’s current priorities are to build up the sales network, forge partnerships, and develop a next-generation core technology for optronics.

“I believe that my experience, in both international business and leading a high-tech product unit, will promote the attainment of Senop’s objectives,” says Korhonen.

“We would like to thank Senop’s current CEO, Mika Räty, for his input and efforts, which have helped Senop rise to its current position and become a recognised and reliable partner with specialist expertise in container-based integration projects, high-tech sensors and optoelectronic products,” adds Pitkänen.
