For nearly a decade, BAE Systems’ TIM 1500™ has provided thermal imaging technology for U.S. troops during operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. This latest $13 million order from the U.S. Army supports the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station and Stryker programs.
“For the warfighter, the TIM 1500 system provides a critical tool for mission success in less-than-ideal conditions, either day or night,” said George Bartlett, program manager. “For the government, we are providing a proven and affordable solution for our military in a time of shrinking budgets.”
The battle-proven TIM 1500 provides warfighters an extended range capability for target acquisition, long-range surveillance, and situational awareness. The uncooled thermal imager is remotely controlled and designed for vehicle-mounted platforms for light- and medium-caliber weapons.
BAE Systems has supplied more than 13,000 TIM 1500 thermal imagers to the U.S. Army.
