BAE has delivered its Check-6 Visibility Systems for incorporation in the U.S. Army's legacy MRAP vehicles. As part of the contract, the company will be supplying about 5,286 Check-6 taillight imaging systems for the U.S. Army.
The company’s Check-6 solutions offers night, day and all-weather surveillance to the occupants of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, permitting the combat squads to inspect the conditions outside the vehicles, while being in the protective armor.
This $32.9 million worth agreement is given, apart from its earlier order for the delivery of 3,999 systems. Together with this contract, the company will be providing a total of 9,285 Check-6 solutions to the Army.
Lila Hillin, Check-6 program manager stated that these innovative solutions will provide the army personnel with the required external alertness and at the same time being secure within the armored vehicle. The system has been installed in M1 Abrams, Stryker and the MRAP all-ground vehicles and is ideal for integration into the taillight enclosures common to over 200,000 military vehicles. Nearly 30,000 Check-6 sensing devices have been ordered and the company has already supplied over 20,000 devices for integration in U.S. military vehicles.
These Check-6sensors demand least modifications to the vehicle construction and have long wave range infrared sensing units fitted into the vehicle's tail lamp enclosures, according to the company.
