BAE Systems Reaches Deal with Canadian Firm

BAE Systems has a deal in place to provide thermal weapon sights to Canadian soldiers.

The sights would better troop situational awareness and survivability.

According to the firm, “Rheinmetall Canada will integrate the firm’s uncooled thermal weapon sights with the 40mm grenade launcher’s fire control system as part of the Canadian Army’s Close Area Suppression Weapon.”

“BAE Systems understands Rheinmetall Canada’s urgent need to deliver Close Area Suppression Weapon Systems to the Canadian Department of National Defense in support of their soldiers’ operational needs, ” said Dennis Long, program manager for BAE Systems. “Our sights provide a tremendous day and night advantage in detecting, observing, and engaging the enemy. Simply put, they help soldiers achieve their missions and return home safely.”
