The LUMIBIRD Group, the European leader in laser technologies, announces that its subsidiary Lumibird Photonics Sweden AB has received two major orders from Saab AB for the OdiPro laser rangefinder to be used with the CV90 infantry fighting vehicle. The total order value is approximately SEK 130 million (€11.5m) and the contract period is 2024-2029. Lumibird will provide the OdiPro laser rangefinder for the BAE System CV90 ordered by Slovakia and the Czech Republic in 2024. The work will be carried out in Gothenburg, Sweden. The total volume of OdiPro and variants including these orders now exceeds 1.000 units and is used by nine European countries.
