By: John Honovich, Published on Feb 20, 2019

One is a major US defense supplier. The other is owned by the Chinese government.

But you can "SAVE BIG" on both at ADI.

In this note, we examine FLIR's ongoing attempt to divest itself financially and publicly from US government banned Chinese surveillance as well as Hikvision's most aggressive recent attempt to sell products.
