Raytheon Network Centric Systems (NCS) has been awarded a delivery order from the US Army for AN/PAS-13E thermal weapon sights (TWS).

The AN/PAS-13E light, medium and heavy sights provide enhanced night vision capabilities to acquire and accurately engage targets.

Raytheon NCS Combat Systems vice-president Glynn Raymer said the thermal weapon sights provided superior night vision targeting performance and durability for the soldier.

The $68.6m order brings the total number of TWS to more than 40,000.
