The company has been working in the field of defence since 2004, implementing various projects for tactical defence communication, as well as such projects as Alliance Ground Surveillance (NATO AGS) Programme and European Defence Industrial Development Programme (EDIDP).
“Work in the defence area is full of technological challenges. Being active players of this sector, we believe that the experience gained and the modern technologies used can contribute to the development of relevant defence solutions,” said Rimvydas Jančiauskas, CEO of Elsis PRO.
Elsis PRO has been participating in NATO AGS since 2013, and joined EDIDP in 2019.
