Used on remote weapon stations TIM1500 Thermal Imagers allow soldiers to detect and identify enemy targets

LEXINGTON, Massachusetts -- BAE Systems has received multiple contracts totaling $38 million to provide thermal imagers for the U.S. Army's Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) II and Stryker programs.

The TIM1500 thermal imagers used on remote weapon stations allow soldiers to detect and identify enemy targets while remaining protected inside their vehicles through remotely controlled, vehicle-mounted platforms for light- and medium-caliber weapons. The TIM1500 provides extended viewing range capability to detect vehicle targets at a significant range for target acquisition, long-rang surveillance, and situational awareness.

"The TIM1500 provides high performance imaging while offering a smaller, lighter, lower power and lower life-cycle cost compared with other competitive options," said Michael Mawn, product line manager for TIM1500. "Our world-class technology demonstrates how we understand the warfighter, and their needs for successful missions," Mawn added.

Under the contract, BAE Systems from its Lexington, Massachusetts operations will provide the TIM1500 to Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace AS. The company recently shipped its 10,000th TIM1500 imager, and increased its production rate in support of Army requirements, including deployment of the units on MRAP combat vehicles.
