Xenics, Europe’s leading developer and manufacturer of advanced infrared sensors, cameras and customized imaging solutions from the short-wave infrared (SWIR) to the long-wave infrared (LWIR) realm, announced its participation in LynkEUs, a EDIDP (European Defense Industrial Development) multimillion Euro funded program.

In addition to the recently released products for industrial market, Xenics is also investing in cuttingedge technologies for defence applications. Participation in LynkEUs and selection as a European funded EDIDP program demonstrates the place of Xenics as a leader in infrared cameras development and manufacturing.

LynkEUs project will define an initial operational concept for a European BLOS capability. It consists of a land missile system, a turret system to support and set up the missile using a UAV for target designation and a land platform.

Based on its cutting-edge developments on uncooled LWIR solutions, Xenics will demonstrate an ultracompact LWIR camera core that will be integrated on a UAV platform.

Xenics is honoured to be part of the LynkEUs project that includes key European defence players and that has been selected in one of the European precursor programmes of the European Defence Fund to contribute to the European autonomy.
