History of our company

We produce cooled thermal imagers

We have expanded our current offer of sensors to include cooled thermal imaging cameras.


We have received the Golden IDET 2021 award

The evaluation committee acknowledged the design, functions and versatility of the MANTIS remote-controlled weapon station. 

New remote-controlled weapon stations presented at IDET

Our display at the IDET 2021 exhibition included additions to our defence portfolio, for example the MANTIS remote-controlled weapon station for 12,7 mm machine guns and MANTIS MINI, remote-controlled weapon station for 7,62 mm machine guns.


Clean room equipped

Special equipment in our clean room includes collimators, a climate chamber for simulating temperature tests and an active black body for calibrating thermal imaging cameras among other equipment.

Own paint shop opened

In order to ensure maximum product quality control and reduce delivery times, we have also set up own paint shop in the new building.

Our production capacity doubled

The recent completion of another stage in the expansion of our production facilities is an important milestone for EVPÚ Defence. Due to the ever-increasing interest in military products we built another production hall in 2019 which enabled us to increase our production capacity by approximately 50%.

Interview with the Commercial Director of EVPU Defence

Additional production facilities are being completed

We are finishing new production facilities including a paint shop and a clean room for our special operations with sensitive electronics.

We introduced more products designed for military sector

We have significantly expanded the range of products for the Czech Police as well as for the army projects involving modernisation for Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic.

Czech police received brand new surveillance vehicles from us

On December 12, 2018, we solemnly handed over to the Police of the Czech Republic with the participation of plk. Mgr. Milan Majer (Director of the Czech Foreign Police Service) five brand new VW CRAFTER surveillance and monitoring vehicles.

We launched new P/T GEMA

GEMA is a versatile dual-axis pan and tilt positioner with an excellent price / performance ratio.

This pan and tilt positioner is specially designed for medium and long distance systems that require azimuth and elevation movement with excellent precision and high angular velocity. GEMA systems have a high load capacity of up to 50 kg.

We launched new P/T MSR-W

which allows the transfer of liquid media to optical devices, whether for cooling or lens showering. This makes the MSR-W pan/tilt very invaluable, especially in desert areas where the cameras are exposed to extreme temperatures and sand pollution.

We celebrated 15th anniversary

A short thanks to our customer can be read in News 2016 - We celebrate 15th anniversary.

We bought collimator for daylight and infrared cameras measurements

We have bought a new, advanced device for daylight and infrared camera optical attribute’s measurements. Thanks to this device, collimator DT250, we are newly able to test optical attributes of daylight and infrared optical systems without further increase of our product’s price, or test already complete optical devices in case of interest of the customer.
