► KNDS and EODH signed a contract for implementation of ASPIS NG Protection System into Leo Family platform

Today at EUROSATORY, EODH and KNDS extended their long lasting cooperation until 2035 with a new contract to integrate ASPIS NG Protection System to Leopard MBTs. This is a major milestone for the technological cooperation between the two companies which will bring their products into a new era enriching them with next Generation Protection Solutions and Technologies.

The expertise of KMW – now KNDS Deutschland – with its global leading position in the MBTs sector is complemented by EODHs’ quarter of century performance in the protection domain and proven track record.

The partnership between KNDS and EODH which was based on reliability and sustainability while fulfilling the highest quality standards has brought both companies to the point of taking the next major technological step: utilizing the EODHs’ Protection System ASPIS NG to lead the way in the protection technologies sector for the next decade.

Such a strategic alliance will enable the implementation of the ASPIS NG system in the e.g. Leopard 2A8 or the recently presented Leopard 2 A-RC 30 and is part of the bridge solution until the MGCS is ready for series production and is therefore also very likely to be part of it…

As well this cooperation will surely find the interest of all so called “LeoBen” (Leopard Users) as the modularity and newest technologies used in the ASPIS Modular NG System can also be integrated in other existing MBT fleets for example the Leopard 2A4 where Greece is one of the biggest users.

Last but not least the agreement will help to strengthen NATO’s and Europe’s capability to increase its resilience in the future. With a 25 years of track record, EODH has become an important Global Partner in the Development, Design and Manufacturing of all types of Protection Systems in the Defense Market, with activities in Greece, Europe and the Middle East. By providing Innovative and Tailor made Solutions for today’s specific needs. EODH became one of the Preferred Partners for protection and its key role is positively determined especially in the Design, Manufacturing and Integration of its Protection Solutions.
