WILSONVILLE, Ore., July 19, 2011 — Flir Systems Inc. received a $7,785,143 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery and indefinite-quantity contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Div., of Crane, Ind., for its electro-optic sensor (EOS) systems, failure analysis, repairs, upgrades, field repairs, provision item order spares, maintenance training and data in support of the Naval Shipboard Protection System program.
Flir’s rugged EOS systems are ship-mountable to provide surface ships with day/night, high-resolution, infrared and visible band imaging, and rangefinding capabilities to augment existing optical and radar sensors to detect and identify asymmetric threats.
The systems will be operated on military maritime crafts exposed to harsh operating and environmental conditions. In addition, they will be used to detect threats as they are entering into a US Navy exclusion zone.
Work will be performed at the Wilsonville facility and is expected to be completed by July 2016.
