CROFTON, Md., 17 Nov. 2005. Falcon Systems Engineering Corp. in Crofton, Md., won a U.S. Army contract for high-fidelity thermal targets for weapons training and testing.

The contract, worth an estimated $726,822, is for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project called High-Fidelity Multi-Spectral Targets for Gunnery Training.

Last June, Falcon completed the first phase of the SBIR program submitted a proposal for Phase II. According to the Army, only one in 10 companies are successful bidders on Phase I, and only half of the companies invited to submit a Phase II proposal are successful.

Falcon's "High-Fidelity Multi-Spectral Targets for Gunnery Training" SBIR project focuses on developing a new generation of thermal targets for the Army's many weapon firing ranges.

The targets will have a realistic thermal signature and be more durable than the targets in use today.

Falcon Systems Engineering produces thermal infrared emitter and smart portable power supply products for the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Department of Homeland Security, and Special Operations Command.
