Raytheon to supply FDF with PhantomlRxr thermal bioculars

Defence contractor Raytheon has been awarded a fixed-price contract with options totalling $19.9m (£12.6m) to supply the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) with PhantomIRxr thermal biocular systems.

Raytheon will supply the FDF with systems and spares along with a maintenance package and work will be performed at Raytheon’s Network Centric Systems (NCS) site in Richardson, Texas.

Following a competitive procurement, Raytheon’s PhantomIRxr system proved its capabilities in the field trials. 

Raytheon’s PhantomIRxr system is a man-portable thermal biocular, weighing less than 3.6lb with batteries, which functions as a surveillance and targeting system.
