Irvine Sensors Supplies Clip-On Thermal Imagers

As a result of a modification to an existing purchase order with Optics 1 (Manchester, NH) Irvine Sensors Corp. will supply that firm Clip-On Thermal Imager (COTI) systems as part of the Optics 1's $37.8-million contract with the Naval Surface Warfare Center (Crane, IN). Irvine Sensors will produce COTI devices that augment the capabilities of existing military night vision goggles, providing thermal images in conditions of low light or harsh atmospheric conditions. Jointly developed by Irvine Sensors and Optics 1, the COTI technology could be used to retrofit as many as one million night vision goggles currently in UN military inventories. According to John Carson, CEO of Irvine Sensors (Costa Mesa, CA), "Once the required delivery schedules of the government customer are fully known, we expect that the amount of our subcontract will ultimately exceed $18 million in support of this job."
