FLIR Systems announced on 29 January that it has received a delivery order for 24 US 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 US Department of Defense (DoD), in support of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) DR-SKO programme and is valued at $27.9 million, with deliveries extending through the third quarter of 2019.
The CBRN DR-SKO system is a set of mission-specific kits that provide a full spectrum dismounted CBRN reconnaissance capability utilized by the US armed forces. The programme was initiated in 2008 with FLIR Systems as prime contractor.
“Our field-proven DR-SKO solutions provide critical technology to help US soldiers work more safely in their mission to ensure the well-being of our country,” commented FLIR President and CEO, Jim Cannon. “This order demonstrates the US 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.”
