FLIR has won a $16 million contract to help international counter-terrorism.
The company received the order for its Recon B2-FO integrated dual channel thermal binoculars from an Asian government customer tied strategically to the U.S.
This country is also one of FLIR's largest users of the Recon line.
Work will begin immediately with shipments of the binoculars expected to start in the next 12 months.
“We are very pleased to have been selected to provide these high performance long-range handheld imaging systems for this counter-terrorism mission,” Andy Teich, FLIR CEO stated.
“Once again, our CDMQ model of developing, manufacturing, and distributing military-qualified imaging systems on a commercial basis has yielded a product that optimises size, weight, power, and global supportability. This significant follow-on order from this customer demonstrates the effectiveness of our strategy and the long-term nature of our customer relationships.”
