Fiscal 2018 other procurement (Navy) funds in the amount of $20,989,780 will be obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year, it added.

JHMCS provides several options for the night module including Night Vision Cueing Display called QuadEye (100-degree by 40-degree field of view) or Aviator Night Vision Imaging System (40-degree field of view), with symbology or video inserted into the night-vision scene, Rockwell Collins information explains.
