FLIR Receives $19.5 Million Mobile Surveillance Capabilities Order from U.S. Department of Homeland Security

FLIR Systems, Inc. announced today that it has received a production order totaling $19.5 million for its Mobile Surveillance Capabilities (MSC) systems, the second option exercised for the procurement of additional units under its five-year firm-fixed price contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

FLIR's MSC system is an integrated mobile surveillance and detection vehicle made to operate day and night in rugged areas of the U.S. southern border, and features FLIR's TacFLIR 380HD long-range stabilized multi-sensor system and a long-range radar integrated into a vehicle-mounted surveillance tower. The contract builds on FLIR's long-term history of providing U.S. CBP with advanced surveillance systems.

"We are pleased to provide these additional MSC integrated surveillance systems to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security," said Andy Teich, President and CEO of FLIR. "Our ability to integrate advanced imaging and sensing systems has provided our customers with proven, reliable, and robust solutions for protecting borders and providing long-range situational awareness. We look forward to continuing our successful deployment of these systems with the U.S. CBP in this important mission."

Production of the MSC systems will be performed in FLIR's facility in Elkridge, MD, and fulfillment of the option is expected to occur over the next 12 months.
