L3Harris Technologies has completed delivery of more than 1,000 combat-ready Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems to the U.S. Army.
This delivery fully equips the Army’s second unit with next generation night vision technology that enhances the soldier’s ability to locate and engage threats and access common operating environment imagery, thus improving the soldier’s situational awareness, mobility and protection.
“The ENVG-B is designed to give soldiers unmatched capability on the battlefield and utilizes our high performance, white phosphor night vision tubes with a thermal channel, enabling a soldier to see and maneuver in zero and low-light situations,” said Lynn Bollengier, President, Integrated Vision Solutions, L3Harris. “Our L3Harris team is proud to continue our collaboration with the U.S. Army to deliver this game-changing, combat-ready system that meets the urgent operational needs of our close combat troops.”
This delivery is part of the initial order the company received under the $391 million ENVG-B Directed Requirement contract from the Army in 2018.
The ENVG-B delivers imagery and data from the battlefield directly to the soldier’s eye. The system includes a new, high-resolution display and an embedded soldier wireless personal area network, rapid target acquisition and augmented reality algorithms to interface with the Army’s Nett Warrior. The complete system will interface with the Army’s family of weapon sights, while enhancing interoperability and data sharing.
