WILSONVILLE, Ore., July 13, 2016 — Flir Systems Inc. has announced the Star SAFIRE 380-HLDc high-definition, compact, airborne electro-optical/IR targeting system. The system combines sensor technology with precision laser designation to give light combat helicopters and similar platforms next-generation performance. It eliminates the need to choose between system size, weight and targeting performance. A compact design, ideal for smaller aircraft with limited ground clearance, provides a superior solution for locating, identifying and laser marking targets at maximum range. The Star SAFIRE 380-HLDc delivers longer-range positive ID (PID) than previous systems of this size and weight, making it a surveillance and intelligence-gathering force multiplier. Incorporating a long-range laser designator for precision engagements and advanced laser spot-tracking and decoding, the system is driven by Flir's Commercially Developed, Military Qualified (CDMQ) model.
