The US Army has selected SiOnyx digital night vision cameras for its Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) project.

The contract has been awarded under the SOSSEC and the Sensors, Communications and Electronics Consortium (SCEC) Other Transaction Agreement.

Valued at $19.9m, the contract has been issued on behalf of the US Army’s Night Vision and Electronic Sensor Directorate (NVESD) for an undisclosed number of digital night vision cameras.

SiOnyx will deliver low-light camera modules for prototyping of low-light and night vision capabilities to the IVAS system.

Deliveries under the contract will be carried out by the company within two years.

“In November, reports emerged that Microsoft won a $480m contract with the US Army for Integrated Visual Augmentation System prototypes.”

SiOnyx is an innovator in advanced CMOS image sensors and high-performance camera systems. The company’s Aurora night-vision camera is said to be the only high-definition colour action camera with day and night imaging capability.
