Teledyne FLIR to Provide Weapon Sights Systems Under $500M Army FWS-I Contract
The U.S. Army has awarded Teledyne FLIR Defense a five-year, $500.2 million contract for advanced thermal imaging systems for the service’s Family of Weapons Sights-Individual program.
The firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will require Teledyne FLIR to provide hardware at the Army’s facilities in Billerica, Massachusetts, and Goleta, California. Weapons systems manufacturer Maztech Industries will serve as a subcontractor for the effort.
The FWS-I system can be mounted on individual weapons and provide infrared imagery capabilities. It can operate in all weather and lighting conditions and can see through fog, smoke and other obscurants, Teledyne FLIR said Thursday.
Robert Mehrabian, chairman and CEO of Teledyne Technologies, said the company will deliver weapon sights to be able to support warfighters whenever they need it the most. He added that Teledyne FLIR will use over four decades of experience to meet the Army’s needs.
The FWS-I program falls under the Army Program Executive Office-Soldier. The contract award was made through the Army Contracting Command.
