INVISIO has entered into a five year framework agreement - where the end-customer is the Armed Forces of a European country - with the system integrator of the end-customerÂ’s vehicle modernisation programme utlising Racal AcousticsÂ’ new CVC headset, the RA4000 Magna with accessories.

The value is approximately SEK275 million over the agreement period but no volumes are guaranteed.

The agreement is part of the end-customer’s ongoing modernisation programme of systems that enable effective communication in heavy vehicles.

The contract is a significant strategic success for the new digital RA4000 Magna Combat Vehicle Crewman (CVC) headset.

The agreement is not the first success for the new and highly advanced RA4000 Magna headset. Early in 2021 Racal Acoustics announced that they had signed a seven year framework agreement for deliveries to the Danish army. The value of the first order from that agreement was USD4.7 million.

“We are very pleased with the success of the new RA4000 Magna headset. There is no doubt that it is a market leading solution for high noise vehicle environments. We are now very much looking forward to addressing an array of ongoing and future modernisation programmes with this communication solution," said Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.

It is worth noting that deliveries of Racal Acoustics branded products in general may lie further in the future than for products under the INVISIO brand. It is not unusual for the customer to request a first part-delivery within six months but not want the next delivery until 12-36 months later.
