FLIR Systems Wins Contract

Wednesday, August 09, 2006
FLIR Systems Inc. is being awarded a maximum $34.8m firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for enhanced targeting sights (ETS) for Special Operations Forces Laser Marker (SOFLAM) system. The ETS is a companion sight for the SOFLAM. The system uses a special image intensifier designed to "see" the wavelength of a single range finding pulse as well as the repetitive pulses of precision munitions guidance laser designating a target. The ETS increases the accuracy of the SOFLAM by allowing operators to view the laser spot and target scene simultaneously. Work will be performed in North Billerica, Mass., and is expected to be completed by August 2011. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. Naval Surface Warfare Systems, Crane Division, Crane Ind., is the contracting activity.
