  • FLIR Receives Imaging Systems Order
Dec 2002
PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 24 -- FLIR Systems Inc. announced it has received a contract for approximately $17 million for the delivery of thermal imaging systems to be integrated into a forward observer system (FOS) for the Norwegian and Swedish armed forces.

Deliveries will start in 2004 and run for several years. FLIR won the order from Simrad Optronics, a Norwegian company that is the prime contractor and integrator for the project.

The FOS incorporates FLIR's thermal imager, a laser range finder, GPS, goniometer, tripod and, in some systems, a north-seeking gyro. The FOS is used as a forward observer and target identification and location system for day and night operations.

FLIR's thermal imager is integrated into the system or can be used as a standalone handheld unit. It uses quantum-well infrared photodetector technology, which was developed by FLIR's Sweden Imaging Div.
