BAE Awarded $434M to Produce Army Night Vision, Targeting Systems

night visionBAE Systems has been awarded a potential five-year, $434 million contract to integrate night vision and thermal targeting technology into head-worn goggles for the U.S. Army.

The contract has a $35 million initial value and was awarded through the military branch’s Enhanced Night Vision Goggle III and Family of Weapon Sight-Individual program, BAE said Monday.

According to the company, U.S. soldiers use a goggle platform to recognize and identify targets as well as a weapon mounted device to engage targets during surveillance missions.

The company will work to combine the two tools into a single platform with the goal of helping military users acquire targets in any lighting and weather conditions.

BAE will manufacture the integrated ENVG III/FWS-I systems at the firm’s Hudson, New Hampshire, facility.
