WILSONVILLE, Ore., Oct. 4, 2013 — Thermal imaging and detection systems maker Flir Systems Inc. has been awarded a $49.9 million Navy contract to supply maritime electro-optical/IR imaging systems to the Navy and Coast Guard.

The contract, awarded by the US Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Div., will support the Navy and Coast Guard’s Patrol Boat Electro-Optics System (PB-EOS) program. Flir will supply a variant of its recently introduced SeaFLIR 280-HD maritime electro-optical/IR imaging system for enhanced navigation, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

“Winning this contract proves the benefits of our commercially developed, military-qualified model to our customers,” said Flir president and CEO Andy Teich, adding that “this will further strengthen our already leading presence in the maritime EO/IR market.”

Work under the contract is expected to be performed at Flir’s Billerica, Mass., facility and completed by September 2018.
