EOS Defence Systems specializes in technologies that integrate weapon systems into a wide range of land and sea platforms. The company's products include solutions for countering unmanned aerial vehicles and ground targets.

They operate under the slogan "No one kills drones like EOS."

One of Electro Optic Systems' flagship products is the Slinger anti-drone combat module, equipped with a 30mm Bushmaster M230LF automatic cannon. The German government has purchased this system to protect IRIS-T air defense systems in Ukraine.
