Flir Systems has been awarded a $38 million contract by the US Army for spare components for the company's Star Safire II stabilised multi-sensor system that is installed on the Army's medevac Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters.
An initial delivery order of $1.7 million has been paid so far, for a total delivery worth $38 million. The spare components work is expected to be performed by Flir's facility in Wilsonville and deliveries are expected to be completed within the next five years.
‘The Army's MEDEVAC programme has saved countless lives and we are proud to continue as a key element of its mission,’ said Earl Lewis, Flir president and chief executive officer.
