FLIR Systems Inc. is being awarded a contract modification to procure electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) sensors and cable kits for the Patrol Boat – Electro Optics System (PB-EOS) for the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy.
The firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity modification, worth around $11 million, is being awarded by the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division (NSWC Crane) located in Crane, Indiana. Fiscal 2018 Coast Guard; fiscal 2018 other procurement (Navy); and fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance (Navy) funding in the amount of around $2 million will be obligated at time of award and will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
This modification will increase ceiling and revise maximum quantity from 142 to 168 for EO/IR sensor systems including cable kits. FLIR Systems is supplying a variant of its SeaFLIR 280-HD maritime electro-optical/IR imaging system for the PB-EOS contract.
The primary mission of the PB-EOS is to provide enhanced visual imagery to augment existing electronic sensors that will enhance low visibility and night navigation, maritime interception, coastal observation and surveillance, insertion and extraction operations, combat search and rescue (CSAR), identification, real-time situational awareness and threat warning, reconnaissance and surveillance, documenting navigational hazards as well as visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) operations.
Work will be performed in North Billerica, Massachusetts, and is expected to be completed by October 2019.
