Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., Aug. 16, 2010 — Flir Systems Inc. will receive an $8,624,000 firm-fixed-price contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center of Crane, Ind., for non-warranty repairs and spares for the maritime forward-looking infrared radar (MARFLIR), high-power microscopic field (HPMF) and MicroStar systems.

The three systems provide maritime crafts, ground vehicles and unmanned aircraft with all-weather, day and night, high-resolution, stabilized, forward-looking infrared thermal imaging capabilities that augment existing optical and radar sensors by imaging enemy forces on land, at sea and in the air during periods of darkness and poor visibility. The systems can enhance the detection, recognition, identification and tracking of targets.

Expected to be completed by August 2015, the work will be completed at the North Billerica facility.

The contract was not competitively procured.

Flir Systems designs, manufactures and markets thermal imaging and stabilized camera systems for commercial, industrial and government markets.

An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...

1. The anode or anticathode of an x-ray tube that emits x-rays when bombarded by electrons. 2. The screen in a television imaging tube that is scanned by an electron beam to determine the charge-density stored on it.
thermal imaging
The process of producing a visible two-dimensional image of a scene that is dependent on differences in thermal or infrared radiation from the scene reaching the aperture of the imaging device.
