The U.S. Army has selected L3Harris Technologies’ (NYSE:LHX) Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) to enhance situational awareness and increase soldier mobility and protection.

L3Harris received an initial multi-million dollar Other Transaction Authority (OTA) award from the US Army for the ENVG-B Program of Record, which has a total value of $442 million. L3Harris is one of two companies to receive initial funding under this OTA.

The ENVG-B delivers imagery and data from the battlefield directly to the soldier’s eye. The system includes a new, high-resolution display and an embedded soldier wireless personal area network, rapid target acquisition and augmented reality algorithms to interface with the Army’s Nett Warrior. The complete system will interface with the Army’s family of weapon sights, while enhancing interoperability and data sharing.

“We are pleased with the Army’s continued confidence in L3Harris as an industry partner on this critical program for the close combat soldier,” said Lynn Bollengier, President, Integrated Vision Solutions, L3Harris. “We look forward to working with the Army on this new requirement as we continue to deliver combat-ready ENVG-B systems under the Directed Requirements contract.”
