EOS Singapore Defence Systems entity marks 10 year anniversary

EOS Defence Systems, a subsidiary of Electro Optic Systems (EOS), celebrated ten years based in Singapore.

EOS Defence Systems, a subsidiary of Electro Optic Systems (EOS), celebrated ten years based in Singapore.

The company was established to support the sale and subsequent sustainment of its R600 remote weapon station (RWS) to the Singapore Army.


This was the first dual-weapon station produced by EOS and is mounted on the ST Engineering Land Systems Terrex 8x8 Infantry Fighting Vehicle.

EOS is proud of the long and successful relationship it has with the Singaporean Armed Forces and Government. Grant Sanderson, CEO of EOS Defence Systems said.

"Being based in the region has enabled us to draw on the best of local talent to build our team and to extend our footprint across all of Asia."

Inaugurated by the then Australian High Commissioner to Singapore, Hon Philip Green (pictured), the facility was one of the most advanced of its kind ever deployed in Asia.

Winning the Singapore tender paved the way for a greater presence in the Asia Pacific market. In 2013 ST Kinetics and EOS set up a joint RWS maintenance and support facility.


EOS Singapore has grown from the original three employees in a joint facility to today having nine employees in their own facility.

Since EOS Singapore Defence Systems began operations, Henry Heng, president for the Asia Pacific region, has been led the company for over a decade.

"EOS is a company that will create a solid legacy, and I am truly honoured to be part of that legacy.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 10 years with EOS, and I am enthusiastic about the future about the company," Heng added.

"EOS Singapore would like to extend our deepest gratitude towards everyone who has helped us along the way during these 10 years and we look forward to many more exciting years ahead.”

The office not only has responsibility for sustaining the EOS RWS in-service with the Singaporean Army, but is also now the hub for all EOS business development in the Asia Pacific.
