Elbit Systems to supply night vision systems to U.S. Army

Elbit Systems announced on 12 October that its U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America was awarded an order valued at approximately $107 million for the supply of Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems, spare parts, logistics support, and test equipment, for the U.S. Army.

The order will be executed in Roanoke, Virginia and will be supplied during the years 2023 and 2024.

This order is part of an Other Transaction Authority (OTA) contract that Elbit Systems of America received in 2020, with a potential value that could reach a maximum of $442 million.

The ENVG-B integrates powerful night vision capabilities and head-up situational awareness that allow soldiers to navigate and perform at their best on the modern, complex battlefield.

ENVG-Bs are equipped with high-performance white phosphor image intensifier tubes for better scene contrast providing soldiers better situational awareness in the dark, but also when there is fog, dust, or smoke.

The ENVG-B system includes a wireless connection to soldiers’ rifle-mounted thermal weapon site and augmented reality overlay, enabling rapid target acquisition and improved situational awareness in various battlefield conditions.

Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, Elbit Systems President & CEO, said: “This order attests to the quality of Elbit Systems of America’s technologies and their unique operational contribution, demonstrating the significant potential of our night vision activity.”
