The Danish defense procurement agency and Teledyne FLIR Defense have entered into an agreement for the delivery of a range of medium- and long-range surveillance systems for the Danish armed forces.
Potentially worth over $100 million over the period of performance, the contract will see Teledyne FLIR work with its Denmark-based partner Precision Technic Defence Group to deliver the systems for land, maritime and airborne applications.
Teledyne FLIR said it offered its SeaFLIR/TacFLIR 280-HDEP and SeaFLIR/TacFLIR 380 HLD-X day/night, all-weather imaging systems.
The contract allows DALO to procure versions of these products for the Danish defense mobile sensor systems program, which supports the surveillance needs of its army, air force and navy users.
DALO said the procurement was the result of a five-year collaboration between the Danish industry and FLIR. The next phase of the procurement project will be the integration of the sensor systems on the platforms that are set to receive them, i.e. frigates, vehicles and helicopters.
“Teledyne FLIR is proud to partner with Precision Technic Defence to continue to supply Danish armed forces with state-of-the-art, gyro-stabilized sensor systems,” said JihFen Lei, executive vice president and general manager of Teledyne FLIR Defense. “We’ve invested heavily in technology upgrades across our lineup, including edge processing and AI capabilities that reduce the cognitive load on operators and improve situational awareness.
According to the company, the SeaFLIR 280-HDEP provides long-range target detection, identification, and tracking for mission support, such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; maritime search and rescue; interdiction; covert operations; and disaster recovery.
TacFLIR 280-HDEP is a land-based version of the system used for ground vehicle surveillance and fixed installations, featuring a laser designator. The SeaFLIR/TacFLIR 380 HLD-X provides HD multi-spectral imaging, ultra long-range imaging performance, image stabilization, and metadata embedded in digital video, complete with laser designation and rangefinder.
