L3Harris Technologies has received an $100m order from the US Army for the delivery of its Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) system.
The ENVG-B system is designed to increase situational awareness by bringing battlefield imagery and data to the soldier’s direct vision.
It also boosts soldier mobility, protection, targeting, survivability and lethality.
The latest order marks the second delivery order the company has received from the Army for the ENVG-B Program of Record (POR). The POR has a cumulative value of $442m.
L3Harris Integrated Vision Solutions president Lynn Bollengier said: “The advanced capabilities of the ENVG-B give soldiers the unmatched ability to identify, assess and engage a target with greater accuracy and speed.
“ENVG-B is today’s most advanced, combat-ready situational awareness goggle and delivers game-changing technology to the army’s close combat forces.”
The night vision goggle includes a high-resolution display, an embedded soldier wireless personal area network, quick target acquisition and augmented reality (AR) algorithms.
It helps improve interoperability and sharing of data by interfacing with the US Army’s family of weapon sights and the army’s Nett Warrior.
US New Hampshire senator Jeanne Shaheen said: “Our soldiers deserve the best technology possible to ensure successful missions at home and abroad. I’m proud of the important role New Hampshire plays in safeguarding our national security, including this award for L3Harris Technologies in Londonderry to produce enhanced night vision goggles.
“This $100m order will help the army assess threats and targets with efficiency and accuracy.
“I’ll continue working in Congress to guarantee our warfighters have the technology they need to ensure success and that New Hampshire stays on the frontlines of producing cutting-edge technology.”
L3Harris is supporting the US Army with ENVG-B, STORM II laser rangefinder and other tactical radios such as the AN/PRC-163 and the AN/PRC-171 to enhance situational awareness and lethality for the soldier.
Since 2018, L3Harris has delivered more than 6,000 ENVG-B systems to the US Army under the POR and Directed Requirements contracts.
In October 2019, L3Harris delivered the first 40 combat-ready ENVG-B systems to the US Army.
