PARIS. Officials at Safran and Raytheon signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the next generation of combat vehicle sighting systems.

The MOU will leverage Raytheon electro-optical technology with Safran's inertial measurement unit technology to engineer, manufacture, and deliver the latest Forward-Looking Infrared, or FLIR, sights. The new systems will allow soldiers to see across long- and mid-wave bands simultaneously and at very long ranges with a stabilized line of sight.

Under the cooperative agreement, next-generation FLIR B-Kits will be integrated with Safran vision sights onto armored vehicles, as approved by the U.S. and French governments.
