FLIR Systems, Inc. announced it has received a delivery order for 24 U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Dismounted Reconnaissance Sets, Kits, and Outfits (CBRN DR-SKO) systems.
The delivery order is under a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the U.S. Department of Defense, in support of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) DR-SKO Program of Record. The order is valued at $27.9 million, with deliveries extending through the third quarter of 2019.
The CBRN DR-SKO system is a set of mission specific kits that characterize and provide full spectrum CBRN dismounted reconnaissance capability utilized by the U.S. Military Joint Services, including units within the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Teams. The program initiated development in 2008 with FLIR Systems, Inc. as the prime contractor.
“Our field-proven DR-SKO solutions provide critical technology to help U.S. soldiers work more safely in their mission to ensure the well-being of our country,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR. “This order demonstrates the U.S. military’s confidence in FLIR to provide reliable products that ensure accurate analysis for safe and fast response measures to complete their very important mission.”
Since the Department of Defense awarded the original CBRN DR-SKO full rate production IDIQ contract in December 2014, FLIR has delivered nearly 200 systems. Production for this order will continue to be performed out of FLIR’s facility in Elkridge, Maryland.
