Senop Oy has signed a framework agreement with Patria to supply driver’s night vision systems, which will be installed on 6×6 CAVS (Common Armoured Vehicle System) armoured personnel carriers (APC). The agreement includes a purchase order which secures the continuation of already ongoing deliveries of Senop driver’s Night Vision Systems to all Latvian APCs and Finnish pre-series vehicles. In addition to this, it also enables deliveries to other potential countries participating in the programme.
