Raytheon and Denmark-based Falck Schmidt Defense Systems have unveiled am infrared sensor designed to provide situational awareness capabilities to soldiers inside armored fighting vehicles.
The long-range reconnaissance and surveillance FLIR system is built for automobiles and towers that are used to survey battlefields and target areas, Raytheon said Thursday.
Jeff Miller, Raytheon vice president of combat and sensing systems, said the companies made the gadget to help warfighters detect and identify targets beyond direct-fire ranges.
“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,” Steen Garnaes, chief sales officer at Falck Schmidt Defense Systems.
The LRRS FLIR sensor was presented at the Defense & Security Equipment International trade show.
