The U.S Army has awarded ITT Exelis to supply goggles that allow soldiers to detect and identify potential threats while maintaining a secure position in various environmental conditions during nighttime missions. This contract is valued at approximately $49.5 million for over 3,800 units, which features the company's latest sensor fused night vision technology that fuses thermal and light amplification into an unprecedented “own the night” capability. The Army awarded Exelis the first of two production options for the Spiral Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (SENVG), designated AN/PSQ-20A. A capability that provides our soldiers the ability to detect and identify potential threats, regardless of the weather or environmental conditions, helping to ensure they complete their missions and come home safely. “We have proved our sensor fused capability in the field, and we are ready to deliver the next round of enhanced night vision goggles to the U.S. Army,” said Nick Bobay, vice president and general manager of ITT Exelis night vision business area. “The night vision team leveraged our design and manufacturing experience to create a sensor fused goggle that provides the soldier with greater situational awareness and improves command execution and rapid decision-making on the battlefield. For soldiers in the field, this is a game-changing technology that increases mission effectiveness – day or night”. In 2005, Exelis won the ENVG contract for over 9,000 goggles. The SENVG is production-ready, reliable and durable in challenging conditions and combines the strengths of thermal infrared imagery and image intensification. The SENVG is designed to accommodate enhancements for future network integration and lays the foundation for a digital future.
