Flir to supply sensors for US border control

Flir Systems, a provider of thermal-imaging cameras, has announced that it has received a $5.4m (£3.6m) order from US Customs and Border Protection for its Star Safire HD stabilised multi-sensors.

The units delivered under the order will be used to assist the CBP air assets in their performance on missions guarding the borders of the US.

Work on this order will be performed at Flir’s facilities in Wilsonville, Oregon, and deliveries are expected to be completed by the end of 2010.
