FLIR Systems announced it received orders totaling US$11.4 million from NSWC, Crane Division for its BRITE Star(R) II multi-sensor target designation systems. The orders were according to a previously announced $125.3 million, five year requirements contract. The units delivered under these orders will be used by the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Navy for various missions.
Work will be performed at FLIR's facilities in Wilsonville, OR. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2010 and conclude in 2011.
“These new orders under the existing contract further demonstrate FLIR's position as a leading, world-class supplier of sophisticated, EO/IR laser designation systems,” said Earl Lewis, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. “We are pleased the Navy and Marine Corps have selected FLIR products for their critical missions.”
