BAE to Provide Thermal Monocular for Special Operations; Vdim Plotsker Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBAE Systems has won an $11 million contract to provide thermal monocular devices to Special Operations Command, the company announced Wednesday.

Soldiers will use the devices to handheld, helmet mound or clip-on modes for image intensified devices and visual augmentation.

The thermal device is the size of a credit card and works in smoky or dusty conditions, the company said.

Vdim Plotsker, president of BAE’s OASYS unit, said the Defense Department reviewed and tested the devices.

The company recently opened a new facility in the U.K. to make rear fuselages and tails for Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter jet.

The new facility is part of a three-phase 150-million Euro project.
