Soldiers will field the initial batch of updated goggles through early 2020 to help increase their situational awareness, the company said Monday.
ENVG-BÂ uses a white phosphor image intensification technology and a thermal channel designed to fuse images and thermally detect targets. The binocular is intended to address the Army’s soldier lethality cross-functional team requirement.
Dana Mehnert, president of L3Harris’ communications systems segment, said thatÂ ENVG-B reflects a year-long collaboration between the company and the militaryÂ branch.
âThis is the first networked night vison system that brings battlefield imagery and data directly to the soldierâs eye, providing situational awareness beyond the capability of near-peer threats facing the U.S. military and our allies around the world.â
The companyÂ received two more orders worth $153M combined to deliver 7K additional systemsÂ and provideÂ logistics support services following the completion of initial deliveries.
