FLIR Systems has won a contract from the Pentagon to support the Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Dismounted Reconnaissance Sets, Kits, and Outfits (DR SKO) program.
The contract is for FLIR's integrated chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) threat response system and related spares and services. Initial delivery orders amounting $27.1 million were received for systems and support.
The DR SKO program is in development since 2008. It is a joint-service and Pentagon initiative centered on CBRNE threat detection systems.
The Program will be utilized by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Civil Support Teams. The FLIR DR SKO system provides an integrated set of CBRNE detection, identification, sample collection, testing, and personal safety kits that allow personnel to perform site assessment and consequence management missions.
“This award is the outcome of our ability to design and produce highly-integrated systems that leverage many different types of sensing and CBRNE technologies” was quoted as saying by Andy Teich, President and CEO of FLIR.
These advanced threat detection systems will serve to protect troops and citizens and we are proud to be able to support the U.S. Department of Defense in this endeavor,” Teich said.
Production under the contract is expected to be performed out of FLIR's facility in Elkridge, MD, and fulfillment of these delivery orders is expected to occur throughout 2015.
