U.S. NECC Buys USD 17.9 Mln Worth Maritime Imaging Systems
FLIR Systems, Inc. announced today that it has received a $17.9 million delivery order from the U.S. Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) for its SeaFLIR® maritime imaging systems. The systems are expected to be deployed on U.S. Navy Patrol Boats.
FLIR’s SeaFLIR® product line is currently deployed for such diverse missions as search and rescue, interdiction, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting applications. In addition, all variants of the SeaFLIR® are engineered, designed, and qualified for operation in the harshest maritime conditions.
Work under this contract will be performed primarily out of FLIR’s facility in North Billerica, MA, with deliveries expected to begin in the third quarter of this year.
“This represents another strong win for us in the maritime space and builds on our excellent relationship with the U.S. Navy. Our capability to develop the most useful and highest performance imaging systems for extreme rugged conditions is unmatched,” said Earl Lewis, President and CEO of FLIR.
