Theon Sensors, a leading company with a global footprint in night vision and thermal imaging systems for military and security applications, presented a product portfolio of man-portable equipment that included a variety of Night Vision Monoculars (Argus), Modular Binoculars (Argus Panoptes), Dedicated Night Vision Binoculars (Nyx, Mikron-D), Night Vision Stand Alone Weapon Sights (Artemis), Night Vision Clip-On Sights (Damon) as well as a comprehensive series of thermal sights, either in stand-alone version or as Clip-on Sights (Thermis and Thermis Mk2).

Theon Sensors has also been active in the field of platform-based optronics equipment, with products such as Night Driver Viewers systems (Titans, Thermon), as well as in Digital Night & Day Targeting and Acquisition cameras (Urania) being used on a variety of Western armored vehicles for many years.

The company counts 26 years of operation in the defense sector and, since then, has grown to a world player in the field of man-portable night vision and thermal imaging Systems, with more than 200,000 in service in 66 countries worldwide, out of which 23 are NATO members.

Today, the company makes its next step in platform-based optronics equipment, by presenting Talos family, its first stabilized multisensory system that was officially launched during DSEI London 2023.

The Talos MR, a Medium-Range Multi-Sensor EO/IR System, is its first gyro-stabilized platform-based observation and surveillance system, which is equipped with a Day/LLL camera, a Cooled-MWIR camera, a Laser Ranger Finder and optionally with a Laser Pointer and a SWIR Camera. Talos MR may be used either as a fixed-ground surveillance system, integrated into vehicles as a ground-mobile observation/reconnaissance system, or may be integrated with a vessel's systems and offer a full solution for naval and maritime operational requirements. Talos MR is the first of a family of multi-sensor EO/IR platform-based systems to follow in the coming months.

The second field in which Theon Sensors has invested and developed new technologies is image fusion and augmented reality (AR) systems for the company’s man-portable product range, where new products will be launched shortly.

Philippe Mennicken, Business Development Director of Theon Sensors, said: “These products combine Theon Sensors’ expertise in night vision and thermal imaging while adding an AR component that allows the connection of Theon Sensors’ systems to Battle Management Systems (BMS). The Thermis series of thermal imaging sights, for which Theon Sensors has already a contract with the British Ministry of Defence, is able to be connected to BMS, such as the MIMS Ranger of its’ sister company Scytalys or other BMS systems such as ATAK (Android Team Awareness Kit), both through wired and wireless connection. Consequently, Theon Sensors is able to offer complete, connected soldier optronic solutions to its customers worldwide as part of theARMED (Augmented Reality Modular Ecosystem of Devices) as an ITAR-free solution”.

Scytalys: integration of air, space, sea, and land defense systems across all services

Scytalys is a leading software development and system integration company, operating internationally with its main offices in Athens. The company has more than 30 years of operation in the Defense and Security sectors, where it specializes in the specification, design, development, integration, installation, testing, and follow-on support of interoperable, mission-critical C4ISR products and fully integrated solutions.

At DSEI 2023, Scytalys presented its revolutionary main product lines, the Mission Information and Management System (MIMS) family of Mission Systems and the Universal Link System (ULS) Multi Data Link Processor(MDLP).

The MIMS suite is the in-house designed and developed product family for enhancing situational awareness for effective decision-making and advanced, real-time command and control between the commanding units and the on-scene assets. The MIMS system can be a true force multiplier in the air, land and naval domains, supporting joint multi-domain operations through the integration and management of sensors and communications sub-systems.

Scytalys’ ULS is an innovative, modern system for the collection, management, and dissemination of processed digital information, which composes the common operational picture, through NATO and Western protocols. The technologically innovative ULS differentiates itself from the competition, offering the Armed Forces full control over the formation and communication of tactical information, using the proprietary data link "Λ" (Lamda link), a protocol developed by Scytalys.

Numerous visitors had the opportunity to get acquainted with the new smart interoperability solutions of Scytalys, offering a joint all-domain operations solution that will provide integration of air, space, sea and land systems across all services.

George Menexis, CEO of Scytalys, said: “The company has taken into consideration newly developed concepts, such as the Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), to integrate its aspects into existing products and systems such as MIMS-C2, ULS, MIMS-Airborne, MIMS Ranger. In fact, part of the effort is building connectivity among all the different platforms and systems in use today that were not designed to communicate with each other. The goal is to develop requirements and standards for future systems to be interoperable. Interconnecting capabilities that span across different systems, it’s harder, but here is where smart interoperability will lie in the future.”
