JAKARTA, Indonesia, (BulgarianMilitary.com) – In the period from 07-11 November, for another year, the international military Indo Defence 2018 Expo & Forum is held in Jakarta, Indonesia. Approximately 850 international companies in the area of military-defence production and security participate in the current exhibition, among which is the Bulgarian optical manufacturer, Opticoelectron Group JSCo, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.

This year, Opticoelectron Group JSCo displays at the exhibition its product ranges in the field of day and night artillery optics, which are the main focus of the company.

At the exhibition, interest provokes the LARTOS high-tech optical coordinate system for identification targets and objects, which also has a secondary function – precisely defining the distance to the target with respect to the LARTOS itself.

“What is interesting about Lartos is its non-volatile database of coordinates of objectives and objects, which means that if the system power is turned off, the system keeps this database so it can’t be lost.” – commented the company’s Business Development Director, Eng. Boyan Garchev. “But besides the artillery optical systems, at Indo Defence we also offer our latest developments in the field of security and safety of large border furrows and oil fields. These are our stationary, semi-stationary and mobile systems for surveillance and observation, under the Muson brand, which is produced and sold by us,” adds Eng. Garchev.

We recall that this year Opticoelectron managed successfully to develop, produce and sell this type of surveillance systems, with the Bulgarian state becoming a customer in the field of stationary and semi-stationary systems and in the area of the mobile systems – Sweden. BulgarianMilitary.com has learned that at the moment there is a request for the purchase of Opticoelectron’s mobile systems made by an Australian company.

At Indo Defence, the Bulgarian company also exhibits and two of its most popular products in recent years – the short wave infrared series lenses SWIRECON and the world’s smallest night vision goggles Nirecon, weighing only 300gr.

“For us, our presence here is of strategic importance and for a consecutive year it meets us with our partners beyond the ocean. We have clearly set goals though which to develop new future business contacts in the USA and the countries from the region. As you know during the last years we have been seriously developing SWIR technologies in Opticoelectron, that is why its presentation and promotion here not only evoked interest, but also opened the door to new business challenges,” commented Eng. Boyan Garchev, Director International Business Relations at Opticoelectron.

BulgarianMilitary.com reminds that Opticoelectron managed years ago to develop and present one of the first working prototypes of a SWIR lens, and in the middle of August this year it also presented the fifth product of its range – SWIRECON 12,5 which has a very open f-number – 1.2. Only for the last two years the Company has invested approximately US$ 4 million in the integration of new production technologies and innovations. In 2017 it has been officially opened and put into operation the most advanced workshop for infrared optics in Bulgaria and on the Balkans.

SOFIA, Bulgaria (BulgarianMilitary.com) – Lockheed Martin’s presentation on 18 September in Sofia, with which the company officially made its offer for a sale of F-16 Block 72 to Bulgaria, undoubtedly turned out to be a strong move by the U.S. company, considering that it was the only from all participants that took this commercial practice. Today, however, the other participant that also has a great chances to be the final winner – SAAB Gripen, has played its trump card in the competition with his American contestant, learned Bulgarian Military.com

SAAB Gripen offers a partnership to Bulgarian companies, which to become part of the acquisition process of new combat aircraft for Bulgarian aviation. These are Avionams – Plovdiv, Optix – Panagyurishte, Terem Letetz – Sofia and Samel – 90 – Samokov.

In official presentation of SAAB Gripen it is said, we quote „Saab has already identified number of local companies for potential cooperation in the field of security of supply“

BulgarianMilitary.com contacted for comment the Marketing Director of one of the companies mentioned above – Zhelyazko Gagov from Optix who told for our media: “Yes, we are familiar with the fact that SAAB Gripen has quoted us in their widespread presentation. This can be a pleasure for us because in recent years we have been working on several projects with different company subdivisions, which have nothing to do with the current topic and tender for Bulgarian fighter aircraft. In our relationship with them we are guided by the principles of correct partnership. In this sense, it is logical that we have already had talks with the Swedish company about the current project and our possible participation in the form of industrial co-operation, but we cannot say more details at this point because the whole process is yet to begin.”

We remind that a few days ago, the Minister of Defense Krasimir Karakachanov told the media that the Plovdiv-based company Avionams did not have a license to repair the old Russian Su-25. He is right because in business with military products and dual purpose products not everyone can produce, not everyone can repair and not everyone can resell. Only the manufacturer of a specific product can decide if a company can obtain a license to repair its products. It is also important to be understood that this license may only be valid on the territory of the country in which the company operates.

In connection to this, the citation of Avionams and Terem Letetz as well as Samel 90 may be a slight wink that the Swedish company would be ready to issue the necessary future documents for its Bulgarian partners.

Taking into account what Zhelyazko Gagov said, we make a conclusion that the three companies above may have also worked with their Swedish partner, which would be in their favor at this point. At Bulgarianmilitary.com we do not have received an official confirmation by the three companies for this, so until now it remains only our assumption.

According to the official presentation of SAAB Gripen, they are ready to deliver the first four Gripen to Bulgaria within two years, as well as to fully equip two sheds at Graf Ignatievo Air Force Base, which is located near Plovdiv.
