HENSOLDT South Africa has announced the launch of its latest ARGOS-8 airborne electro-optical system (EOS) at the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The ARGOS-8, a lightweight 8-inch-class EOS with a mass below 6 kg, is equipped with niche laser products and offers day and night operation for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), as well as intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions.

The two companies leveraged complementary technologies to bring the ARGOS-8 to market quickly and efficiently.

The ARGOS-8 is being showcased at IDEX 2023 alongside other HENSOLDT South Africa solutions, including the ASTUS unmanned aerial system, which will integrate the ARGOS-8 and begin production deliveries in 2023. Deon Olivier, Chief Executive of the Optronics business unit at HENSOLDT South Africa, said the collaboration with Threod Systems will allow the company to address customer requirements rapidly and with the right partner.
