L3Harris Technologies has delivered 656 combat-ready Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems to the US Army as part of a contract.

The delivery is part of the initial order received by the company in 2018 under the $391m ENVG-B directed requirement contract from the US Army.

Following the delivery, the first unit of the army is fully equipped with next-generation night vision technology.

The technology enhances the soldier’s ability to locate and engage threats. It gives access to the common operating environment imagery.

The combat-ready solution aids in improving the soldier’s overall situational awareness, mobility and protection.

L3Harris Integrated Vision Solutions president Lynn Bollengier said: “The success of the ENVG-B programme is based on our continued collaboration with the US Army and our ability to rapidly develop, test and deliver next-generation capabilities that enable our soldiers to combat near-peer threats around the world.

“Delivering imagery and data from the battlefield directly to the soldier’s eye is game-changing technology and L3Harris is proud to equip the army with the first combat-ready goggles of this kind.”

Last year, L3Harris delivered the first 52 systems. To date, the company has received delivery orders of more than 10,000 ENVG-B systems under the contract signed.

The night vision goggle includes a high-resolution display. It was designed with an embedded soldier wireless personal area network, rapid target acquisition and augmented reality algorithms. This helps the mission operation by connecting with the army’s Nett Warrior.

The complete system will interface with the army’s family of weapon sights, simultaneously enhancing interoperability and data sharing.
