Portland, Ore., 25 September 2006. The U.S. Navy's Naval Surface Warfare Center - Crane in Indiana has submitted an order valued at $6.7 million to FLIR Systems Inc. for the delivery of enhanced targeting sight (ETS) infrared imaging systems.

This order is the first production order under an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract from the US Navy valued at approximately $35 million. Future orders under the contract are subject to available funding. The work will be performed at FLIR's North Billerica, Mass., production facility, with deliveries to commence immediately.

The systems are based on the company's rugged SeeSpot III high-performance thermal imager that allows operators to identify targets and view laser designators simultaneously.

Used in day and night battlefield environments and in degraded weather conditions, the ETS increases the accuracy of laser designators by allowing operators to view the laser spot within the target scene.

Field-proven and battle-tested in Afghanistan and Iraq, the SeeSpot III is mature and production-ready. The company has delivered over 1100 similar units since 2001.
