ITT wins $43 million U.S. Army Follow-on contract for Enhanced Night Vision Goggles
ITT Corporation today announced that it has been awarded $43 million follow-on orders from the U.S. Army’s Research, Development and Engineering Command Acquisition Center for the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG), and associated spare parts. "Our unmatched capability, technology and customer support are at the heart of these most recent awards," said Mike Hayman, president of ITT’s Night Vision business. "By continuing to deliver the industry’s most advanced night vision goggle, we are providing our warfighters with unrivalled capabilities required for current and future battlefield operations, he added". ENVG optically combines an image intensification image, and proven thermal infrared technology, allowing for improved mobility and situational awareness—through clear target detection and improved target recognition. The ENVG combines the strengths of both technologies into one helmet-mounted unit, allowing warfighters to complete their missions more effectively, even when confronted by low-light or obscured conditions.
