    Mast-mounted FLIR improves soldier safety

 

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and Falck Schmidt Defence Systems are debuting a remotely operated, mast-mounted, long-range reconnaissance and surveillance (LRRS) forward looking infrared (FLIR) system. The new system, displayed at the DSEI trade show, provides greater situational awareness while enhancing soldier safety by allowing the operator to stay under cover.

 

"Raytheon's FLIR sensor allows warfighters to detect targets outside the direct-fire range, 24 hours a day, so they can identify and locate targets before they become threats," said Jeff Miller, vice president of Combat and Sensing Systems for Raytheon Missile Systems.

 

LRRS sensors can be integrated on wheeled or armored combat vehicles and towers.

 

"We have already demonstrated this system to the Danish land forces, and we plan to introduce it soon in the U.S. at the AUSA trade show," said Steen Garnaes, chief sales officer for Falck Schmidt Defence Systems. "Retrofitting and integrating the latest technologies on armored vehicles improves their performance and increases soldier survivability."

 

About LRRS

LRRS sensors provide U.S. and international allied military forces with increased situational awareness.

 

    Warfighters have the ability to see in the dark.

    Operations can be carried out in any kind of weather or battlefield obscurant conditions.
