FLIR Systems is bolstering its advanced imaging arsenal with the acquisition of Salvador Imaging Inc., a provider of high-performance visible and low-light imaging systems

FLIR announced Thursday it was buying the stock of the Colorado Springs, Colo,-based company for $13 million.

The acquisition of Salvador will enhance and differentiate FLIR's multi-sensor systems for military customers and expand its security and surveillance product offerings to commercial customers, FLIR said.

Salvador's 12- and 14-bit modular camera designs use charge-coupled device (CCD) and electron-multiplying charge-coupled device (EMCCD) sensors at speeds in excess of 100 million frames per second. In addition to operating at high speeds and with low light, these EMCCD cameras provide color and monochrome images.

"The acquisition of Salvador Imaging expands FLIR's capabilities into a market closely related to our core infrared business. Salvador's technology can be integrated into many of our multi-sensor systems for government applications, and has significant potential for standalone applications," said FLIR President and CEO Earl Lewis.

Salvador Imaging has been re-named FLIR Advanced Imaging Systems Inc. and will operate as a separate business unit within FLIR's Commercial Vision Systems division.
