Leica Geosystems announced that its Surveying & Engineering Division has won a major order from the U.K. Ministry of Defense against tough competition.

Over the next several months, Leica Geosystems will deliver 32 of its market-leading GPS receivers, 48 high-end TPS1100 total stations and other products to the Royal Engineers of the British Army.

The company did not disclose the total amount of the order, but according to Woon it was the largest single order of its kind to-date this year in Europe, and a major achievement for the company.
