Exelis awarded several Foreign Military Sales orders for Canada

The U.S. Army has awarded Exelis (NYSE: XLS) Foreign Military Sales orders totaling $9 million to supply Canada with night vision devices and image intensifier tubes. Night vision goggles and the associated image intensifier tubes that comprise them are both high-performance, lightweight and reliable devices that provide significantly enhanced low light resolution for target recognition and identification.

“Exelis remains committed to serving our international customers with unmatched Generation 3 night vision technology that allows for improved mission success,” said Nick Bobay, president of the Exelis Night Vision & Tactical Communications Systems division. “This order further enhances our long-standing relationship with Canada as a night vision customer.”


These rugged devices can be hand-held, head- and helmet-mounted, or combined with a separate camera, depending upon product type and operational environment. The Exelis Generation 3 system provides the world’s highest-performing image intensifier tubes, which improve image resolution under low-light conditions.
