Lightforce Group’s defence arm, Force Ordnance, has supplied 120 advanced binocular night-vision devices to the ADF’s Dismounted Combat Program, in partnership with Theon Sensors.

Force Ordnance personnel delivered ‘train-the-trainer’ instruction, qualifying ADF instructors at both the Royal Military College, Duntroon and the School of Infantry, Singleton in the use of the equipment.

The non-ITAR restricted night-vision devices allow sharing of technology and collaboration with Australia’s regional strategic partners.

Lightforce signed an exclusive agreement with Theon Sensors in 2018, paving the way to manufacture, assemble, test, distribute and provide through-life support and maintenance of Theon Sensors products at its Adelaide manufacturing facility.

"Theon Sensors is deeply committed to the Australian Industry Capability (AIC), ensuring that our partnership with Lightforce not only meets but exceeds the expectations of the Australian Defence Force, now and in the future," said the 5 Eyes Armies - Business Development and Operations Director for Theon International, Dr. Michalis Kolotos,
