FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today it has received an
award from the United States (U.S.) Department of Defense (DOD) Joint
Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and
Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) in support of the Nuclear Biological
Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle Sensor Suite Upgrade (NBCRV SSU) program
for the U.S. Army. The Other Transaction Authority Agreement (OTA) is
valued at $48.1 million, with execution extending through mid-2022.

FLIR will be the lead integrator in the modernization of the U.S. Army’s
NBCRV system. Under the agreement, FLIR will develop a platform agnostic
modular mission payload, which integrates multiple chemical, biological
and radiological sensors into a flexible command and control (C2)
system. This C2 system will allow for data integration from the various
sensors that will enable automation of certain tasks, reducing
warfighter burden. The C2 system and the automation will allow for
collaboration between manned Stryker vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles
(UGVs), and sensor integrated drone platforms.

“We are proud to be chosen by the U.S. Army as the lead developer and
integrator for this key ground combat capability,” said Jim Cannon,
President and CEO of FLIR. “This contract represents a significant
example of our evolution from sensors to intelligent sensing to
solutions that save lives and livelihoods. We will provide a wide
selection of capabilities in this manned and unmanned platform
application to help customers achieve successful mission outcomes.”

Work under the program has begun and is being performed at FLIR
facilities in Stillwater, Oklahoma and Elkridge, Maryland. For more
