Portland, OR--FLIR Systems (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced that its ICx Technologies subsidiary has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs, and Border Protection (CBP) valued at up to $101.9 million for the procurement of mobile surveillance capabilities systems. The five-year, firm fixed-price contract includes a $26 million funded base year with four option periods and calls for integrated mobile surveillance and detection systems made to operate day and night in rugged areas of the U.S. southern border. A FLIR ultra-long-range thermal-imaging camera will be included on the vehicle-mounted surveillance towers. The award builds on ICx's thirteen year history of providing CBP with tactical systems.

It is expected that work under this contract will be performed primarily out of FLIR's facilities in Alpharetta, GA, and Wilsonville, OR. Deliveries are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2011.

"Helping protect the safety and security of the public and its borders is a key tenet of the FLIR product philosophy," noted Earl Lewis, president and CEO of FLIR.
