VSI wins US military NVCD contract
Vision Systems International (VSI) has announced that it has been awarded a contract for the delivery and engineering support of Night Vision Cueing Display (NVCD) systems by the Joint Program Office for US Air Force-US Navy. The LRIP-2 contract will see the delivery of 100 NVCD systems by November 2013.
The award will see VSI's NVCD technology integrated into all domestic Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) platforms for use aboard US Air Force F-15, F-16, and US Navy F/A-18 JHMCS-equipped aircraft.
This new contract is an extension to a $3.8 million NVCD LRIP-2 logistics contract awarded to VSI in September 2011. Under the LRIP-2 contract VSI is modifying the HMD test set to accommodate additional NVCD capability as well as providing support.
