Flir Systems has announced that it has received a $12.4m order from the US Army for its Star Safire II stabilised multi-sensor systems. The units delivered under this order will be deployed on UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters in support of ongoing Medevac operations. This order adds to the more than 200 Star Safire systems already deployed on the US Army's UH/HH-60 Medevac helicopters.
Work on the delivery order will be completed within the next twelve months in Flir's Wilsonville, Oregon facility.
'This order, a continuation of Flir's long-term partnership with the US Army on Black Hawk operations, demonstrates the value of our systems to support critical life-saving Medevac missions,' said Earl R. Lewis, president and CEO of Flir. 'We take great pride in the development and manufacture of US Army certified and battle tested camera systems and are pleased the US Army has once again chosen Flir products.'
