The units delivered under this order will be installed by EADS along the Saudi Northern Border for long-range security and surveillance missions under its recently awarded Saudi Border Guard Development Program (SBGDP). The systems will be deployed on towers along specific sectors of the border and will be networked with radar and other sensing equipment to form an integrated system.
Work will be performed at FLIR’s facilities in Danderyd, Sweden and Madrid, Spain. Deliveries under this order are expected to be completed in 2009.
“We are pleased to be selected by the Saudi MOI and EADS for this initial installation of long-range infrared and visible sensors on the Saudi Northern Border,” said Earl R. Lewis, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. “This order again demonstrates our industry leading position in multi-sensor thermal imaging for border applications, and we look forward to continued participation in this important program as requirements develop.”
