FLIR Systems, Inc. was recently awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract worth approximately $50 million to provide marine electronics systems under the U.S. Coast Guard’s (USCG) Scalable Integrated Navigation Systems 2 (SINS-2) program.
The contract covers a five-year period and provides the purchaser the right to extend delivery for an additional five years.
As part of the contract FLIR will provide electronics systems to fit in more than 2,000 USCG vessels, ranging from small-class boats through large cutter-class vessels.
FLIR’s systems will include Raymarine multi-function navigation displays, sonars, radars, remote instrument displays, and autopilots. The systems will be fully integrated with the Raymarine LightHouse operating system, which offers pre-programmed search and rescue patterns. The LightHouse-based SINS-2 system features advanced target intercept tools and encrypted communications.
“We are very pleased to have been chosen by the U.S. Coast Guard as their supplier for the next generation of advanced situational awareness and marine navigation equipment,” Andy Teich, president and CEO of FLIR, said. “Enhancing safety and situational awareness is at the heart of what we do every day at FLIR. We look forward to continuing our successful long-standing relationship with the U.S. Coast Guard in supporting their important life-saving and homeland security missions.”
SINS-2 products offer integrating with existing FLIR M-Series SeaFLIR thermal imaging cameras currently in use by USCG cutters and boats.
