    Contracts worth over a,15 m from Germany, Canada and Denmark


Cassidian Optronics, a subsidiary of Airbus Defence and Space, has been awarded contracts for the modernisation of more than 100 Leopard 2 main battle tanks in Germany, Canada and Denmark. The contract to equip the gunner and commander sights with modern sensors is worth over €15 m.


ATTICA, a third-generation thermal imaging device from Cassidian Optronics, constitutes the main element of the deliveries, along with additional sensors and system components. The device was introduced as standard in the PERI R17 commander’s sight in Germany in 2013.

This will serve to further standardise the LEOPARD user nations’ configuration of their tanks.
