Defence company, Electro Optic Systems Holding (ASX:EOS) says that 'no EOS product has ever been deployed to or used in Yemen'.

The clarification comes in response to media speculation.

EOS says that defence products are exported from Australia to allies and coalition partners of Australia and the USA, and access is subject to simultaneous formal approval by both countries.

It asserted that is up to the two controlling governments to determine the applications and users they support.

Shares in Electro Optic Systems Holding (ASX:EOS) closed 1.9 per cent higher at $2.71 yesterday.
