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.
