DRS Awarded Contract From NSWC for Advanced Clip-On Thermal Weapon Sight

DRS Technologies, Inc., a Finmeccanica Company, announced that the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division has awarded the DRS Imaging and Targeting Solutions Group (ITS) a contract to develop and deliver Improved Night Observation Device (INOD) Block III systems.

The INOD Block III is a long-range, clip-on thermal sight for surveillance and targeting use on sniper weapons.


“With America’s military missions entering ever more difficult terrains and environments, our forces need the best available technology for more discriminate targeting from greater stand-off ranges,” said ITS President Todd Stirtzinger. “We appreciate our customer’s confidence in our ability to develop technology and systems that make a difference for our warfighters.”

The development of the INOD Block III will allow DRS to continue driving leading-edge technology, allowing for the production of smaller, lighter, low-power thermal imaging devices. The end result will reduce the weight burden on the warfighter and improve their observation and targeting capabilities.
