L3Harris Technologies has completed delivery of 656 combat-ready Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems to the US Army, fully equipping the service’s first unit with next-generation night vision technology that enhances the soldier’s ability to locate and engage threats and access common operating environment imagery, thus improving situational awareness, mobility and protection.
“The success of the ENVG-B program 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,” commented Lynn Bollengier, President, Integrated Vision Solutions. “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.”
This delivery is part of the initial order placed under the $391 million ENVG-B Directed Requirement contract from the Army in 2018. The first 52 systems were delivered last fall and the company has received orders to date to deliver just over 10,000 systems.
ENVG-B includes a new high-resolution display and an embedded soldier wireless personal area network, rapid target acquisition and augmented reality algorithms to interface with the Army’s NETT WARRIOR. The complete system will interface with the Army’s family of weapon sights, while enhancing interoperability and data sharing.
