FLIR Systems has received a delivery order from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) for 24 chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear dismounted reconnaissance sets, kits, and outfits (CBRN DR-SKO) systems for the U.S. Army. The order, valued at $27.9 million, is under a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the DoD. Deliveries of the various system components extend through the third quarter of 2019.
Each CBRN DR-SKO system is a set of mission-specific kits that provide full-spectrum CBRN dismounted reconnaissance capabilities for different branches of the armed forces, including units within the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Teams. FLIR Systems, a leading supplier of advanced sensor systems, has been the prime contractor for the CBRN DR-SKO systems.
“Our field-proven DR-SKO solutions provide critical technology to help U.S. soldiers work more safely in their mission to ensure the well-being of our country,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR. “This order demonstrates the U.S. military’s confidence in FLIR to provide reliable products that ensure accurate analysis for safe and fast response measures to complete their very important mission.”
Since the DoD awarded the original CBRN DR-SKO full rate production IDIQ contract in Dec. 2014, FLIR has delivered nearly 200 systems.
