US Army rolls out new day and night sights
The US Army has begun rolling out its new night vision equipment it announced on 1 November.
The 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT), 1st Infantry Division, has become the first unit to receive the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle - Binocular (ENVG-B) and the Family of Weapon Sights - Individual (FWS-I). The ABCT began fielding the equient in September.
The ENVG-B and FWS-I systems are the most advanced night vision equipment in the US Army. The ENVG-B and FWS-I allow soldiers to see through fog, dust, and smoke, in both day and night environments.
'The ENVG-B will truly be the greatest goggle that we've ever fielded,' said Brig Gen Anthony Potts, PEO Soldier. 'The thermal channel has a day-night capability and we've added in things like augmented reality.'
Initially 2nd ABCT soldiers spent two-days in a classroom learning the basics of the equipment, followed by hands-on training at firing ranges. Further training on the new equipment will be conducted over the next several months.
The ENVG-B and FWS-I were designed with the input of soldiers in a collaborative effort with PEO-Soldier and SL-CFT using soldier feedback early on in the development to inform design.
