Tuesday, October 16, 2018 

FLIR Systems has been awarded a contract from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in support of the US Coast Guardís Second Generation Automatic Identification System (AIS-2) programme.

The indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract has a ceiling value of US$9.9 million to provide second-generation AIS transponders, associated peripherals, and spare parts for nearly 1,774 boats and 282 cutters in the USCG’s active fleet.

The government anticipates the purchase of vessel class-specific kits and spare parts to equip all USCG vessels with AIS-2 over the next five years.

“We are pleased to provide AIS hardware and software technology to support the US Coast Guard’s mission,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO of FLIR. “Our technology will provide enhanced levels of secure communication and coordination between Coast Guard boats, cutters, and shore stations. This award further extends our technology partnership with the Coast Guard, providing next-generation communication capabilities to complement their Raymarine SINS-2 navigation systems.”

The contract will be managed and executed by the FLIR Commercial Business Unit in the Nashua, New Hampshire facility.
