    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    In an agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense valued at $48.1 million, FLIR Systems Inc. will be the lead integrator in the modernization of the U.S. Army’s Nuclear Biological Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle (NBCRV) system. Under the agreement, FLIR will develop a platform-agnostic modular mission payload that will integrate chemical, biological, and radiological sensors into a flexible command and control system. The command and control system and the automation will allow for collaboration between manned Stryker vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, and sensor-integrated drone platforms. Execution of this Other Transaction Authority Agreement (OTA) will extend through mid-2022. Work under the program has begun and is being performed at FLIR facilities in Stillwater, Okla., and Elkridge, Md.
