FLIR has won an $18 million contract to deliver chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) detectors to the U.S. Army.
The kits are for the Army's Dismounted Reconnaissance Sets, Kits, and Outfits program. The contract includes $12.3 million for low-rate initial production of DR SKO systems as well as $5.8 million for program management and logistics, according to a FLIR news release. Production should be complete sometime this year.
"This decision and related orders solidify our position in providing CBRNE solutions and demonstrate FLIR's ability to provide advanced threat detection solutions via a distinctive commercially developed, military qualified model," said FLIR CEO Andy Teich. "Receiving this conclusive production decision and these orders are a result of the work of our CBRNE detection and integration teams and is enabled by our broad suite of sensor technologies."
