Teledyne Flir Defense recently completed a major upgrade to its partner-supported service centre capability in Turkey that performs maintenance and repair work on the company’s advanced surveillance and imaging systems.

Managed and operated since 2015 by Istanbul-based Periter Arastirma ve Teknoloji A.S., the service centre provides essential in-country support for a number of Teledyne Flir customers and end users, both government and semi-government organisations.

Periter is authorised to service a wide range of Teledyne Flir surveillance products, including the Star Safire 380 series of airborne imaging systems, the Recon series of hand-held thermal binoculars, as well as the Seaflir and Tacflir 380 series of imaging and targeting systems.

“This marks a significant milestone for our partnership with Periter, one that will enable world-class, timely maintenance and repairs for essential mission equipment,” said Stan Crawford, Teledyne Flir Defense senior director for the Middle East, Central Asia & Africa. “The new capital investment will ensure that most customer repair engagements will take place within Turkey and establishes Periter’s service centre as one of the most capable centres outside Flir’s own facilities, both in terms of skilled personnel and equipment.

“Upgrading Periter’s service capacity is a vital part of our global service centre network strategy, providing efficient and critical mission support to customers worldwide,” Crawford added.

The recent Periter enhancements include upgrades to infrared and shortwave infrared (SWIR) calibration equipment, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) alignment, and various other advanced measurement and testing procedures.

Flir Defense operates five prime service centres for its military and public safety surveillance customers worldwide – two in the United States (Billerica, Mass. and Portland, Ore.), plus locations in West Malling, United Kingdom; Täby, Sweden; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The company also partners with expert local service providers at more than 30 regional service centres around the globe, close to customer bases and facilities.
