The DefPost website reported that Raytheon ELCAN, a division of Raytheon Technologies Corp., was awarded a contract valued at $10.1 million by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) to provide ELCAN Specter DR dual role sights in three variants to Danish Defence, the armed forces of Denmark. Raytheon ELCAN will begin deliveries in the first quarter of 2021.

Raytheon ELCAN was selected to provide the dual field-of-view sights in both 1-4x and 1.5-6x magnifications for both rifles and machine guns. The sights chosen by Danish Defense forces will have a bullet-drop reticle and a Picatinny/STANAG rail integrated into the housing with an ambidextrous easy-to-use throw lever to switch instantly between magnifications. The ELCAN Specter DR dual role optical sight will supplement the present ELCAN C79 fixed magnification sight as the standard issue optical sight for Danish Defence.
