STEINER ACQUIRES TWO COMPANIES IN U.S., STS AND DIFFRACTION LTD

Steiner officially announces that it has acquired the Sensor Systems Division of The O’Gara Group. The group is comprised of Sensor Technology Systems (STS) and Diffraction LTD.


For more than 25 years, STS and Diffraction have provided the most technologically advanced night vision, beacon and laser devices. Specialized users include Homeland Security, special operations forces, law enforcement and other military personnel.


“Whether it’s digital imaging systems like night vision or thermal rifle scopes, or high-end military technology adapted for the commercial user, it’s inevitable that the future of optics is electronic,” said Stephen McKelvain, Steiner’s Chief Global Marketing Officer. “By combining STS and Diffraction with our established eOptics Division and our existing line of daylight optics, Steiner solidifies its pioneer role in electro-optics.”

STS designs and manufactures equipment, all of which provides improved situational awareness in both day and night operations. STS specializes in supporting the equipment needs of government, military and law enforcement worldwide featuring:
