EVPÚ Defence to supply CMS-1 commander sights for Czech CV90 vehicles

By Defence Industry Europe

Czech defence company EVPÚ Defence has announced its significant involvement in the Czech CV90 infantry fighting vehicle programme, supplying its advanced CMS-1 commander sights. This collaboration with BAE Systems Hagglunds marks a critical development in the partnership between the two defense firms.


The CMS-1 system, designed for both wheeled and tracked armored vehicles, features multi-sensor electro-optical capabilities that enhance battlefield command and control. It is equipped with a gyro-stabilized pan and tilt mechanism that supports a trio of sensory channels: a day zoom camera, a cooled thermal night camera, and a laser rangefinder. These features ensure operational functionality across all weather and lighting conditions.






Additionally, the CMS-1 is built to withstand severe conditions, encapsulated in a rugged container shielded by Armox to offer both vibration resistance and Level II ballistic protection as per STANAG 4569 and AEP-55 standards. This state-of-the-art technology not only increases the operational capacity of the Czech armed forces but also solidifies EVPÚ Defence’s position as a pivotal player in global defense manufacturing.
