EPE New Zealand, in collaboration with Bertin Exensor, has been awarded a contract by the New Zealand Ministry of Defence to provide the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) with reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities as part of the Networked Enabled Army (NEA) Programme.

EPE will deliver the Exensor Flexnet Remote Ground Sensor (RGS) system to the New Zealand Army, a platform that the company describes as a a 'scalable and modular sensing platform that provides situational awareness and early warning, and identification of potential threats'.

Through a Master Supply Agreement, specialist training and ongoing associated Through Life Support (TLS) will be delivered locally in New Zealand as part of the contract by EPE.

"An essential requirement for NZDF is the demonstrated capacity and capability to deliver the equipment and training, and commit to ongoing maintenance and support," said Andy Cross, General Manager of EPE New Zealand.

"As a team, EPE and Exensor have the unique ability to achieve this. We also aim to equip soldiers with technology that not only provides strategic advantage, but also enhances decision-making while safeguarding them from threats."

Exensor sensors are in-service or trial with a number of countries including the UK, Australia, USA and several NATO countries.

"In recent years, the use and need for the Flexnet RGS technology among forces worldwide has increased," said Marcus Rosenqvist, VP Sales & Marketing of Bertin Exensor.

"Exensor is proud to be selected together with EPE for the supply of the latest generation of Flexnet RGS."
