Thales UK is to supply Turkish firm FNSS with thermal driver sights (TDS) and Thales land navigation systems (TLNS) for a Middle Eastern customer.

FNSS will use up to 300 driver sights and 27 navigation systems in the upgrade of M113 vehicles.

TDS is a compact, un-cooled thermal sight designed for tactical and armoured combat vehicles, which have moderate-to-high space and weight limitations but still require an enhanced degree of situational awareness during closed-hatch and high-risk operations, Thales says.

The TLNS addresses the requirements for a highly accurate navigation system for armoured vehicles, including a Commanders Display Panel.

Thales says it features a powerful navigation processor with associated peripherals and interfaces to achieve a robust navigation solution suitable for the harshest of environments.

Financial details and a delivery date were not disclosed.
