FLIR Systems Awarded $89 Million Contract from French Armed Forces to Deliver Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System

FLIR Black Hornet

FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today it has been awarded a contract from the French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA) in support of the French Operational Pocket Drone (DrOP) program. The contract has a ceiling value of $89 million to provide the FLIR Black Hornet® 3 nano-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS) to support French Armed Forces operations.

The Black Hornet PRS is the world’s smallest combat-proven nano-Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) and is currently deployed in more than 30 countries. The Black Hornet enables the warfighter to maintain situational awareness, threat detection, and surveillance no matter where the mission takes them. Equipped with electro-optical/infrared sensors and the ability to fly up to 25 minutes, the Black Hornet bridges the gap between aerial and ground-based sensors, provides the same situational awareness and threat detection capabilities as larger unmanned air and ground vehicles.

“We are honored to support the French Armed Forces’ mission with the delivery of the Black Hornet PRS and related services,” said Jim Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR Systems. “This award strengthens our partnership with the French Armed Forces and our focus on unmanned technology, an emerging area that is strategically critical to FLIR’s business.”

This program provides the expanded capability of the Black Hornet 3 for the French Armed Forces. The contract will be managed and executed by FLIR in Hvalstad, Norway.

{articles|100|campaign}DJI suffer 147.6 Million Dollar fraud in China

At a meeting in Shenzhen that perhaps did not include sandwiches DJI handed 16 employees over to law enforcement officials and a further 29 were dismissed.

The news outlet, Yicai Global, believes more than 100 DJI employees might be involved and losses may exceed 147.6 Million US Dollars.

It appears that the group inflated prices by as much as 20 per cent and skimmed off the excess.

A DJI spokesman said, “DJI condemns any form of corruption strongly and has set up a high-level anti-corruption task force to investigate further and strengthen anti-corruption measures,”

DJI, of course, didn’t lose any money in this con, it was the consumer that suffered.

If anything this incident rather underlines the size of DJI, 100 people are a drop in the ocean in a company of 12,000 employees.

It amazes me that such a large amount of money was skimmed off, an amount that might be close to the total value of all US multirotor makers.
