UAE places $6.3m sensor systems order

United Arab Emirates has placed a $6.3m order with Flir Systems for the company's Star Safire III stabilised, multi-sensor systems.

Under the terms of the contract, the units delivered will be installed on fixed-wing surveillance platforms for use in counter-smuggling and counter-terror missions within the United Arab Emirates. The order is a follow-on option to a previously signed contract between Flir and The General Headquarters of the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Defense.

This $6.3m addition brings the total value of the contract award to more than $34m within the past year.

Work on this order will be performed at Flir's facilities in Portland, Oregon and deliveries are expected to be completed within the next 12 months.
