L3 Technologies has received a contract from an undisclosed customer to provide night vision equipment, the company announced on 20 December.

The $150 million contract covers aiming and illumination devices, image-intensified systems and thermal imaging systems, including binocular night vision goggles, holographic weapon sights, light weapon thermal sights and advanced target pointer illuminator aiming lasers.

The systems will enable dismounted soldiers to locate and target operational threats at night and in adverse weather conditions.

‘L3 continues to invest in promising new soldier technologies, such as fusion and augmented reality, to meet the needs of our domestic and international customers today and into the future.’
