Canberra,  Australia - Electro Optic Systems Holdings (EOS) today announced it has secured a new contract valued at approximately A$28 million to supply R600 Remote Weapon System (RWS) unit spares to a customer in South East Asia.

The R600, renowned for its dual weapon configuration, offers operational flexibility and a range of weapon options to suit diverse mission requirements. Originally developed for a South East Asian customer, the R600 RWS has been subject to continuous innovation and development.

The RWS features EOS' advanced pointing and tracking technology, significantly enhancing first-round hit probability.
