FLIR Surveillance has won a $49.9 million contract to support the Navy’s Combatant Craft Forward Looking Infrared variant 2, or CCFLIR2.
The CCFLIR2 is an infrared imaging system that provides operators the capability to detect visible light or infrared radiation reflected or emitted by surface targets at significant ranges in all operational environments, the Defense Department said in a release.
The system is part of a collection of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems available for use on Special Operations Force maritime craft, the Defense Department said.
Work will be performed in North Billerica, Mass., and is expected to be completed in September 2025.
FLIR Surveillance was the only bidder on this contract.
