FLIR Maritime was awarded a $50 million contract to provide marine electronics systems under the Coast Guard’s Scalable Integrated Navigation Systems 2 program over a five-year period.
FLIR will provide electronics systems that will be standard fit on more than 2,000 Coast Guard vessels, ranging from small-class boats through large cutter-class vessels. The systems include Raymarine multifunction navigation displays, radars, sonars, remote instrument displays and autopilots.
All of these components will be integrated with the Raymarine Lighthouse operating system for simple operation, single-point upgradeability and will include advanced features specifically developed for the Coast Guard.
"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,” FLIR president and CEO Andy Teich said in a statement. “Produced under our unique Commercially Developed Military Qualified model, the FLIR SINS-2 product suite offers powerful functionality, proven reliability and simple operation, leveraging the strengths of both our FLIR and Raymarine product lines.”
“Enhancing safety and situational awareness is at the heart of what we do every day at FLIR,” Teich said. “We look forward to continuing our successful long-standing relationship with the U.S. Coast Guard in supporting their important lifesaving and homeland security missions."
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract provides the purchaser with the right to extend delivery for an additional five years.
