Flir Awarded $27M for EOS System
Sep 2010
WILSONVILLE, Ore., Sept. 3, 2010 — Flir Systems Inc. has received a $27,099,732 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery and indefinite-quantity contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division of Crane, Ind., for the procurement of electro-optic sensors (EOS) and required training, provision item order, non-warranty repairs and data for the Shipboard Protection System (SPS) program.

The EOS, a forward looking infrared laser detecting-range-tracking system, supports the SPS program and is used as a rugged and ship-mountable system that provides surface ships with a day and night, high-resolution, infrared and visible band imaging capability. In addition it features a finding capability to augment existing optical and radar sensors to detect and identify asymmetric threats.

With an expected completion date of August 2015, the systems will be manufactured at the Wilsonville site. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the fiscal year.

The contract was competitively procured via the Federal Business Opportunities website, which received four offers.
