"The CIV is a package of multiple systems all working together to increase the survivability and battlefield performance of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle," said Bryan Rosselli, president of Advanced Products and Solutions at Raytheon. "These capabilities -- early threat detection, 360-degree battlefield view, and all-weather performance -- increase a vehicle commander's ability to locate, identify and defeat stationary and moving targets in any condition – day or night."

CIV advances Raytheon's FLIR product family. Raytheon has delivered more than 25,000 second-generation FLIR sensors over the past 20 years and applied the lessons learned from the development and production to the third generation FLIR sensor. The first two generations of Raytheon's FLIR technology have served forces for more than half a century.

Production of the units will take place in McKinney, Texas. The first delivery is expected June 2026.
