Raytheon and Denmark’s Falck Schmidt Defence Systems have released a remotely operated, mast-mounted, long-range reconnaissance and surveillance (LRRS) forward-looking infrared (FLIR) system. The sensors, which appeared at the DSEI trade show in London, provide greater situational awareness while allowing the operator to stay under cover, according to a Raytheon press release.

“Raytheon’s FLIR sensor allows warfighters to detect targets outside the direct-fire range, 24 hours a day, so they can identify and locate targets before they become threats,” said Jeff Miller, vice president of combat and sensing systems for Raytheon Missile Systems.

LRRS can be mounted on vehicles and guard towers. The equipment has already been demonstrated before the Danish military, and it will be shown at the upcoming Association of the U.S. Army trade show, according to Falck Schmidt chief sales officer Steen Garnaes.
