Thermal sights for US army weapons.

BAE Systems (USA) : 23 October, 2007  (New Product)
BAE Systems wins contract to supply weapon sights using thermal imaging technology to the US Army weapons programme.
BAE Systems has received a $15 million contract to provide thermal imaging sights for the US Army's Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station II (CROWS) program.

Under the five-year contract, which has a potential value of up to $200 million, BAE Systems will manufacture and deliver up to 6,500 TIM1500 thermal sights to Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace AS, supplier of the CROWS II system. The CROWS II program has a maximum order quantity of 6,500 remote weapon stations. Production deliveries will begin in early 2008.

"TIM1500 provides a critical infrared imaging capability to the US Army's weapon station of choice for ground vehicles," said Michael Mawn, deputy program director for BAE Systems' TIM1500 program. "The TIM1500 gives the warfighter a significant battlefield advantage."

The TIM1500 improves situational awareness and gives the ability to carry out target acquisition and surveillance at extended ranges. It can be installed on any US Army ground vehicle.

Under an August 2005 contract valued at about $50 million, BAE Systems has already provided more than 1,400 TIM1500 units to Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace AS in support of the US Army Stryker program. Production deliveries under this contract began in November 2005 and are expected to continue through until April 2008.
