Opticoelectron is involved with its full range of products including night vision devices.

“In recent years, our night vision goggles have continued to establish themselves in the international markets as a quality and safe product,” eng. Boyan Garchev, Sales Director of Opticoelectron told

“They are gradually starting to reach their market goals and are being sold not only in Europe but worldwide. The fact that a soldier wears a device weighing only 350 grams contributes to his better mobility, giving him a real opportunity to execute his orders accurately and correctly. We are proud that Opticoelectron produces these night vision goggles, which are the lightest in the world,” eng. Garchev also said.

The company confirmed that in addition to night and thermal equipment, artillery optics, particularly in the field of grenade launchers, aroused interest in the Bogota exhibition.

“For many years we have been one of the European leaders in this field. There is almost no artillery weapon for which we cannot produce suitable optics, relying on our almost 50 years of tradition in the development of clean and quality optics,” said Boyan Garchev. “At last but not least, we are developing our personal and new production capabilities in the area of ​​security and surveillance of large ground areas. We have a number of implemented projects regarding the construction of mobile, semi-static and static observation systems ”, eng. Garchev added.
