Portland, ore.-based FLIR Systems said it has received a $7.2 million order from the Indian Air Force for equipment including its Star SAFIRE III infrared multi-sensor surveillance systems, training and related services.

The units will be installed on C-130J Fixed Wing Surveillance Platforms in support of Indian Ministry of Defense airborne missions.

It’s the first fixed-wing sale of FLIR's multi-sensor systems to the Indian Ministry of Defense. Work will be done at FLIR's facility in Wilsonville, Ore., with deliveries expected to be completed by 2011.

"This order, the result of FLIR's world-class products and significant investment in regional support and training, demonstrates our ability to penetrate new international markets," said Earl R. Lewis, president and CEO of FLIR Systems.
