Raytheon has developed, produced and delivered its first third-generation FLIR sensor system for the US Army.

The 3rd Gen FLIR system provides individual troops with four fields of view and the ability to see across long- and mid-range IR bands. This enables users to see through darkness, fog, rain, smoke and snow conditions.

Sam Deneke, VP of land warfare systems at Raytheon, described the technology as a ‘breakthrough’. He compared the transition from second- to third-generation FLIR as ‘like moving from a standard tube television to high-definition 8K’.
