Flir Systems has received an $11 million order from BAE Systems in Sweden for thermal imaging systems that will be installed on Norwegian Army CV90 combat vehicles.
Flir's ThermoSight LIRC sighting systems as well as its SA90 and DV55 driver vision, situational awareness thermal imaging systems will be integrated into BAE Systems CV9030 combat vehicles. The ThermoSight products are field-proven thermal systems that feature advanced long-range thermal imaging performance, real-time image enhancement, and a best-in-class input reaction time.
‘This order demonstrates the value of our technology in driver vision and sighting enhancement,’ said Earl Lewis, president and chief executive officer of Flir. ‘We take great pride in being the leader in the development of thermal imaging solutions for emerging global applications and are pleased that BAE Systems has once again chosen Flir.’
Deliveries under this order are expected to begin in 2014 and will add to the number of systems that are already deployed on the CV90 platform for various users.
