FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today it has received an award from the United States (U.S.) Department of Defense (DOD) Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) in support of the Nuclear Biological Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle Sensor Suite Upgrade (NBCRV SSU) program for the U.S. Army. The Other Transaction Authority Agreement (OTA) is valued at $48.1 million, with execution extending through mid-2022.

FLIR will be the lead integrator in the modernization of the U.S. Army’s NBCRV system. Under the agreement, FLIR will develop a platform agnostic modular mission payload, which integrates multiple chemical, biological and radiological sensors into a flexible command and control (C2) system. This C2 system will allow for data integration from the various sensors that will enable automation of certain tasks, reducing warfighter burden. The C2 system and the automation will allow for collaboration between manned Stryker vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), and sensor integrated drone platforms.

“We are proud to be chosen by the U.S. Army as the lead developer and integrator for this key ground combat capability,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR. “This contract represents a significant example of our evolution from sensors to intelligent sensing to solutions that save lives and livelihoods. We will provide a wide selection of capabilities in this manned and unmanned platform application to help customers achieve successful mission outcomes.”

Work under the program has begun and is being performed at FLIR facilities in Stillwater, Oklahoma and Elkridge, Maryland. For more information about FLIR’s chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive detection equipment, visit www.flir.com/threatdetection.
