Flir wins 74 million dollar contract for US army

Wilsonville, Or (USA)

FLIR Systems, Inc. has been awarded a $74.7 million firm-fixed-price order to deliver Tac Flir surveillance cameras in support of the U.S. Army EO/IR-Force Protection (FP) programme. The U.S. Army will purchase the systems through Army Contracting Command, Redstone.

The units delivered under this contract will support the ongoing U.S. Army EO/IR-FP programme, which provides enhanced perimeter security and force protection for U.S. troops stationed around the world, such as Iraq and Afghanistan. As part of the same programme, Flir was also awarded an $8.8 million contract in the third quarter 2017 to deliver other Flir Ranger radars.

"We are honoured to continue our long-standing support of the U.S. Army," said Jim Cannon, CEO and President of Flir. "This programme highlights our ability to rapidly deploy our technology for critical missions and underscores Flir's commercially developed, military qualified approach."

The contract expands the use of Flir stabilised surveillance systems for the U.S. Army's EO/IR-FP programmes. Flir has delivered over a thousand EO/IR sensors to the U.S. Army as part of this programme to support the safety of U.S. forces and those of U.S. allies, including a variety of systems.

Flir will manufacture the systems in Wilsonville, Oregon, and deliveries will begin during 2017 and be completed within one year.
