USMC to receive new night vision devices

1st February 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Marine Corps (USMC) Systems Command has accelerated the acquisition of around 1,300 Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggles (SNBVG), the USMC announced on 28 January.

The updated helmet-mounted night vision system will enhance the user's situational awareness in reduced visibility. It combines two systems: a binocular night vision device and an enhanced clip-on thermal imager.

The SBNVG acquisition strategy is to procure the devices incrementally and concurrently as the USMC looks toward future technologies. The programme office plans on releasing a final request for proposals to procure an estimated 16,000 additional systems. Additional fielding of the systems is planned for September 2019.
