FLIR Systems to support NBCRV SSU programme
FLIR Systems has received an award from the US Department of Defense in support of the US Army’s nuclear, biological and chemical reconnaissance vehicle sensor suite upgrade (NBCRV SSU) programme, the company announced on 11 April.
FLIR will be the lead integrator for the NBCRV system modernisation effort. Under the agreement, the company will develop a platform agnostic modular mission payload, which integrates multiple chemical, biological and radiological sensors into a flexible C2 system. This C2 system will allow for data integration from the various sensors that will enable automation of certain tasks.
The C2 system and the automation will allow for collaboration between manned Stryker vehicles, UGVs and sensor integrated UAS platforms.
Jim Cannon, president and CEO of FLIR, said: ‘This contract represents a significant example of our evolution from sensors to intelligent sensing to solutions that save lives and livelihoods. We will provide a wide selection of capabilities in this manned and unmanned platform application to help customers achieve successful mission outcomes.’
