FLIR Systems To Supply Army UAV Sensors

Awarded $13 Million Contract

FLIR Systems says it has received a contract from the US Army Research Development & Engineering Command (RDECOM), Communications-Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC), Night Vision & Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD), valued at approximately $13 million for the development of an advanced stabilized electro-optical infrared system for use on lightweight Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The award represents a phase two award resulting from a down-select among three phase one awardees.

The contract involves the development of a purpose-built, very small and lightweight stabilized thermal imaging system that will offer long range performance, color visible imaging and advanced laser capabilities. Work will be performed at the Company's facility in Billerica, Massachusetts, commencing immediately and spanning a three year period.

"This contract illustrates FLIR's continuing success in the development of world leading next generation infrared systems for both military and commercial applications, and furthers our efforts in developing high performance thermal imaging systems that can be used on a variety of aircraft and platforms, including the rapidly growing UAV market," commented Earl R. Lewis, President and CEO of FLIR Systems.
