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.
