For Hensoldt, this is already the second order from this customer. Up to now, the two submarines of the 209 series were equipped with periscopes of the SERO 40 Stab type, also from us.

The modernization gives the equipped boats night vision capability for the first time and contributes significantly to digitalisation and extended service life.

The SERO250 is equipped with improved optics that include high-definition and low-level light cameras as standard. Night vision capability is provided by an additional infrared (IR) camera.

The SERO250S is additionally equipped with active laser and passive stadiametric range finding. To facilitate integration, all SERO250 variants can be operated as a stand-alone system or integrated into existing (or renewed) combat management systems.
