Intevac announced it has received an $8.1 million contract award from the U.S. Army for the 24 month development of the Delta I fused digital night vision goggles incorporating advanced augmented reality (AR) capabilities.
The program is in support of a Coalition Warfare Program for the special operations forces of the United States, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
“This will be the first goggle system to incorporate Intevac’s newly-developed ISIE 19 EBAPS sensor”, commented Timothy Justyn, executive vice president and general manager of Intevac Photonics. “This award continues to demonstrate Intevac’s commitment to delivering the latest digital night vision technology to our Warfighters.”
“We are very proud to have received this system development order for our digital night vision technology,” added Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac.
Intevac’s digital night-vision sensors, based on its patented Electron Bombarded Active Pixel Sensor (EBAPS) technology, provide state-of-the-art capability to the most advanced avionic fighting platforms in the U.S. Department of Defense inventory.
