Defence electronic systems supplier DRS Technologies has won a follow-on order for Second Generation Forward Looking Infrared (SGF) sighting systems and components for the US Army combat and tactical-wheeled vehicles from Raytheon.

Soldiers use SGF sighting systems to detect and engage tactical enemy targets at all times, even in zero-visibility conditions. The technology aids in digital battlefield imagery to support interoperability among military platforms.

The deal will provide critical thermal imaging technology to troops in the Abrams Main Battle Tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles and High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles and others.

DRS will deliver Block 1 B-Kit components for Abrams Thermal Receiver Units and circuit-card assembly sets for the Commander’s Independent Thermal Viewer.

The company will also supply B-Kits for the Improved Bradley Acquisition System and the Long Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System.

The contract work will be taken up at the Palm Bay and Melbourne, Florida facility and deliveries are scheduled for January 2011.
