EOTECH, the leading manufacturer of Holographic Weapon Sights (HWS) and Magnifiers, has recently announced a sale of 1,000 of its sighting systems to the Indonesian Armed Forces. Known as the Tentara Nasional Indonesia (TNI), the Indonesian Military selected EOTECH’s Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) and magnifier, for use by the Indonesian Army Special Forces unit, Komando Pasukan Khusus, also referred to as Kopassus. EOTECH is represented in Indonesia by Trident3 Adaptive Technologies Group SDN BHD, a Malaysian-based procurement management specialist. The Indonesian Army Special Forces unit can expect delivery of the EOTECH optics within the coming months. EOTECH produces professional grade optics, trusted by the world’s tier-one professionals, to deliver unparalleled speed, accuracy, and reliability.
“This sale represents a new level of confidence between EOTECH and the TNI. We’ve always had a level of penetration into the Indonesian market, but not to this degree.This recent acquisition represents the confidence in the quality, performance, and reputation of EOTECH’s products. We must also acknowledge the efforts of our in-country partners too, who did an amazing job promoting the EOTECH brand to the TNI.” Frank Moss, Business Development Manager for Asia said.
“Trident aims to only provide best-in-class, proven and relevant solutions. It was an honor to have worked with EOTECH and provide the TNI with their equipment needs. I have every confidence in the quality of the EOTECH product line and look forward to supporting the TNI in the future”, Trident’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Owen Bateman said. He was ecstatic at the outcome of the tender process, highlighting the synergy that exists between the two companies as a key ingredient in their collective success.
Since 1996, EOTECH Holographic Weapon Sights (HWS) have been designed, developed and manufactured in the US. In 2001, U.S. Special Operations (USSOCOM), select elite Army units, and the US Marine Corps chose EOTECH HWS as the preferred close-quarter combat optic of choice. In 2005, EOTECH acquired by L-3 Communications (now L3Harris), one of the world’s largest defense contractors. In 2016, EOTECH expanded its optics line by introducing the Vudu line of premium magnified optics designed to cater to the most sophisticated of users. In 2020, EOTECH officially separated from L3Harris, and will once again be an agile, independent business that is focused on high tech products and superior service. Every optic manufactured is treated as if it will be the one that will face a life and death situation. When there are zero margins for error, compromise is not an option.
