L-3 Communications is being awarded a $49 million contract with a five-year ordering period for binocular night vision devices (BNVD) for the US Navy.
This procurement is for a follow-on contract for the next generation BNVD goggles with white phosphor tubes that focus on weight, size, and power reductions. The BNVD will allow Special Operations Forces to operate with an enhanced visual acuity in low light conditions thereby increasing both their lethality and survivability while achieving their mission objectives, US department of defense said in a statement Monday.
Work is expected to be completed by November 2021.
This contract was competitively procured via the Federal Business Opportunities website, with two offers received.
