AUSA 2016: US Army orders ENVG IIIs

10th October 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DRS Technologies has received an initial production order valued at more than $65 million from the US Army for the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG) III programme.

DRS, which partnered with N2 Imaging Systems for the ENVG programme, received an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract worth up to $367 million awarded from the Army in 2015. This is the first production order issued to DRS under that contract.

The third-generation ENVG is designed to provide rapid target acquisition, then wirelessly send the weapon imagery from the sight to the night-vision goggle eyepiece. The wireless capability gives the user the ability to increase situational awareness to rapidly engage targets even when protected behind an obstacle.

Shawn Black, vice president and general manager, DRS Technologies’ C4ISR business unit, said: ‘This is a very important programme for the army, and we stand ready to provide this incredible technology to our warfighters to ensure they have one more tool on the battlefield to not only keep them safer, but to make sure they are able to complete their mission.’
