ITT Exelis wins US Army NVG follow-on contract

21st May 2013 - 16:32 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ITT Exelis will produce additional Spiral Enhanced Night Vision Goggles (SENVG), designated AN/PSQ-20A, for the US Army under a $48 million contract option announced on 20 May. This is the second production year contract option received by the company for the SENVG, with the first received in April 2012.

The SENVG allows soldiers to detect and identify potential threats in various environmental conditions during night time missions. The goggles feature the company’s advanced sensor-fused night vision technology that combines infrared imagery and image intensification into one compact goggle, providing soldiers with a significant operational advantage regardless of environmental conditions or obscuration.

Nick Bobay, president of Exelis Night Vision & Tactical Communications Systems, said: ‘This award confirms our leadership position in the field of night vision technology. We understand the importance of the enhanced night vision programme, and we are committed to delivering state-of-the-art technology to the US Army so soldiers can achieve mission success in any environment.’

Exelis expects to complete deliveries to the army in 2014.
