JANUARY 31--FLIR Systems Inc. (Portland, OR; www.flir.com) has formed a strategic partnership with Max-Viz Inc., also based in Portland, for the development, manufacture, and sale of enhanced vision systems for commercial and military aircraft. Enhanced vision systems, which use infrared imagers, dramatically improve situational awareness, enabling aircraft to more safely taxi, take off, and land at night, in poor weather conditions, or when vision is otherwise obscured.

In addition to becoming a strategic investor in Max-Viz, FLIR will also provide infrared imagers, manufacturing and engineering expertise, and intellectual property. Max-Viz will provide the end products and will be responsible for all sales and marketing activities.
