FLIR Receives Production Orders Totaling $27.1 M From the US DoD to Support DR SKO Program

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today that it has received the first full-rate production orders under a five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to support the Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Dismounted Reconnaissance Sets, Kits, and Outfits (DR SKO) program. The contract is for FLIR's integrated chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) threat response system and related spares and services. Initial delivery orders totaling $27.1 million were received for systems and support.

The DR SKO program, in development since 2008, is a joint-service, Department of Defense initiative centered on CBRNE threat detection systems that will be utilized by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Civil Support Teams. The FLIR DR SKO system provides an integrated set of CBRNE detection, identification, sample collection, testing, and personal safety kits that allow personnel to perform site assessment and consequence management missions.


"This award is the outcome of our ability to design and produce highly-integrated systems that leverage many different types of sensing and CBRNE technologies," said Andy Teich, President and CEO of FLIR. "These advanced threat detection systems will serve to protect troops and citizens and we are proud to be able to support the U.S. Department of Defense in this endeavor."

Production under the contract is expected to be performed out of FLIR's facility in Elkridge, MD, and fulfillment of these delivery orders is expected to occur throughout 2015.
