The agreement is valued at $81 million and is for the Army MEDEVAC Mission Sensor (MMS) configuration of Flir's commercially developed military qualified Talon product, a stabilised 9-inch multi-sensor gimbal system. The Talon MMS will be installed on the Army's fielded and new MEDEVAC Blackhawk helicopters. An initial delivery order of $19 million was received.

Work under this award is expected to be performed out of Flir's facility in Billerica, MA, with shipments under the initial delivery order expected to be completed by 2014.

The company has also received an order to support the US Coast Guard valued at $23 million with its Talon gimbal system. This order is for the Coast Guard's Electro-Optical Sensor System (ESS), which will be deployed on the Coast Guard's H-60 and H-65 helicopters.
