L-3 night vision systems for Aussie soldiers
L-3 Communications has received a $208 million contract from the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for night vision soldier systems, the company announced on 14 November.
The five-year contract, awarded under the ADF's LAND 53 Phase 1BR programme, follows a competitive bid process that included extensive ADF field testing.
The equipment will include targeting and detection capabilities that are designed to perform at night and under all weather conditions, including binocular night vision goggles that incorporate white phosphor image intensification technology; a compact multifunction aiming laser with integrated white light capability; and the next generation of lightweight, miniature laser rangefinders.
L-3 Warrior Systems will also open a new sustainment centre in Australia to provide in-country logistics support, as well as regional customer support, for this project.
Deliveries will take place between May 2017 and May 2021.
