FLIR Systems, Inc. has received a delivery order for 22 U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Dismounted Reconnaissance Sets, Kits, and Outfits (CBRN DR-SKO) systems. The delivery order is under a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the U.S. Department of Defense, in support of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD) DR-SKO Program of Record. The order is valued at $25.6 million, with deliveries extending through the fourth quarter of 2018.
The CBRN DR-SKO system is a set of mission specific kits that characterize and provide full spectrum CBRN dismounted reconnaissance capability utilized by the U.S. Military Joint Services, including units within the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Teams. The program has been in development since 2008 with FLIR Systems, Inc. as the prime contractor.
“We are proud to support our U.S. soldiers with lifesaving, field-proven DR-SKO solutions to ensure their safety and the well-being of our country,” said David Ray, President of FLIR’s Government and Defense Business Unit. “This order demonstrates the U.S. military’s confidence in FLIR to provide reliable products that ensure accurate analysis for safe and fast response measures to complete their very important mission.”
Since the CBRN DR-SKO IDIQ was awarded in December 2014, over 175 systems have been delivered to the U.S. Department of Defense, for production being performed out of FLIR’s facility in Elkridge, Maryland.
