Surveillance: The Next Growth Sector
New York, NY May 14, 2019 – Stock Market Press is a leading financial news company that delivers up to date stock news, introduces private and public companies to a wide audience of investors, consumers, journalists and the general public via social media and a rapidly expanding network reviews latest developments in the surveillance world.
In a world connected by cell towers in almost every corner, the ability to remotely monitor anything is now ubiquitous. Most anyone can monitor their baby across the house, check in on their front door from their booth at the conference center, etc. It is now time to take it to the next level.
Internet of Things (IoT) is the next evolution in the surveillance sector. Instead of just getting an alarm trigger due to movement or a water sensor going off, with IoT, equipment can talk to other IoT equipment independent of human intervention. Systems can open up drainage areas if there is too much water in a greenhouse, turn on/off water supply, open vents and more, all within a split second while notifying the person on duty in the next room or across the globe. Military demand is huge for this technology and only expected to grow as more remote equipment is used to keep citizens and military personnel safe.
FLIR Systems Awarded $1.8 Million British Army Contract for Black Hornet 3 Personal Reconnaissance Systems
Near-Silent Nano UAS Offers Lifesaving, Covert Situational Awareness to Soldiers
FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced it has been awarded a $1.8 million contract by the British Army to deliver the FLIR Black Hornet 3 Personal Reconnaissance System (PRS). The order is for an experimental procurement of the combat-proven Black Hornet PRS and part of the UK Ministry of Defense’s Transformation Fund Rapid Procurement Initiative.
Units delivered under the contract will support platoon- and troop-level surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. They also will be used in part for a test and evaluation of nano Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) capabilities to enhance warfighters’ situational awareness on the frontlines.
“In 2013, the British Army was the first military force to deploy this technology in an active combat zone with troops operating in Afghanistan,” said David Ray, President of FLIR’s Government and Defense Business Unit. “We are pleased they have again chosen FLIR for its nano UAS solution and we are proud to provide the Black Hornet 3, our latest version of this revolutionary, lifesaving technology, to soldiers on the battlefield.”
At 32 grams with a flight time up to 25 minutes, the nearly silent, pocket-sized Black Hornet 3 transmits live video and high-definition still images back to the operator. Its information feed provides soldiers with immediate covert situational awareness to help them more effectively complete their mission. FLIR has delivered more than 7,000 Black Hornets to military customers worldwide, and this new contract with the British Army expands use of the Black Hornet PRS for military surveillance and reconnaissance programs.
