FLIR Systems will deliver its Black Hornet personal reconnaissance systems (PRS) in support of the US Army Soldier Borne Sensor (SBS) programme, the company announced on 24 January.

The nano UAV systems, delivered under the $39.6 million order, will support platoon and small unit level surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.  

The UAS is equipped with EO/IR sensors and can transmit live video and HD images back to the operator. The system can detect and identify threats day and night without being detected.

In June 2018, the US Army awarded the first SBS phase contract to FLIR for an initial batch of Black Hornet PRS. These systems are now being delivered to the US Army for initial integration into the force.

Delivery of the systems will begin in early 2019.
