During the next few years the British Ministry of Defence will continue procuring Rheinmetall’s state-of-the-art Vario-Ray laser light module for its infantry forces. Mounted on soldiers' small arms, these devices enable them to detect, identify and mark targets.
The LLM Vario-Ray complements the tried-and-tested LLM-01, already widely used by the British military and likewise made by Rheinmetall. Vario-Ray also forms part of Germany’s new “Gladius” expanded future soldier system.dule.
The framework contract, with a total value of €33 million (approximately £28 million), encompasses the supply of tens of thousands of these innovative devices. In the near term more than 7,000 units are to be delivered in a first lot.
