L3Harris Delivers Initial Updated Night-Vision Goggles to Army, Receives Two Additional Delivery Orders

Jeff Brody

L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) has delivered 40 Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binocular devices to the U.S. Army as part of a $391M contract awarded last year.

Soldiers will field the initial batch of updated goggles through early 2020 to help increase their situational awareness, the company said Monday.

ENVG-B 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 that ENVG-B reflects a year-long collaboration between the company and the military branch.

“This is the first networked night vison system that brings battlefield imagery and data directly to the soldier’s eye, providing situational awareness beyond the capability of near-peer threats facing the U.S. military and our allies around the world.”

The company received two more orders worth $153M combined to deliver 7K additional systems and provide  logistics support services following the completion of initial deliveries.
