9LV in numbers

1 min read

In 9LV we combine some of the world's most advanced systems, including weapons and sensors. We think of the 9LV combat system as the brain linking all these pieces together. Here is 9LV in numbers.



You may have heard of C4I. Did you know that 4C stands for Command, Control, Communications and Computers? The I stands for Intelligence.


More than 20 navies across the world operate 9LV, and the number is growing. Current users include Sweden, Finland, Norway, Australia and Canada.


In 1969 we received the first order our first optronic fire control director. This marked the start of the evolution of 9LV. 50 years and counting!


To date we’ve made more than 250 9LV deliveries.


EOS 500 is a lightweight electro-optical fire control director for use on all naval ships. It is used for observation, target identification and fire control.
