Thales and Rosoboronexport sign contract for supply of Catherine FC cameras for Russian Army

27 August 2007

Thales has signed a contract with Rosoboronexport for the delivery of around 100 Catherine FC thermal imaging cameras for the Russian Army.

Recently qualified for deployment with the Russian armed forces - a first in Russia for Western equipment - the Catherine FC thermal imaging cameras will be integrated on T-90 armoured vehicles.

This contract further reinforces Thales's position as a partner to Russian industry in the field of defence optronics for land forces - a position achieved after many years of cooperation on export contracts.

It also marks a decisive step forward in Thales's commitment to extend its position in the Russian defence market and to step up cooperation and investment with local industry.
