Flir Systems has been awarded a contract by a Middle East customer valued at $25 million for its StarSafire 380 HLD gimballed multi-spectrum imaging and laser designation system. The device features Flir's Merlin Moving Target Indicator (MTI) system. The system also includes a diode pumped laser that is compatible with NATO standards.

‘This contract award highlights Flir's ability to develop advanced high-definition imaging and laser solutions by leveraging our distinctive commercially developed, military qualified model,’ said Andy Teich, president and CEO of Flir.

The 380 HLD system is the latest variant of the StarSafire series of gyro-stabilised multi-spectral sensor systems. The addition of the MTI system to the 380 HLD allows for automatic detection and tracking of multiple moving targets. Work under this award is expected to be performed out of Flir's facility in Wilsonville, OR, and is expected to be completed by 2015.
