SBNVG and Spares Delivered Through March 2022
Elbit Systems of America has been awarded a $41 million (€34 million) for the supply of night vision systems and components to the US Marine Corps. Delivery will take place through March next year.
This order is part of a $249 million five-year Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggles (SBNVG) contract awarded in September 2019, under which the Corps is supplied with SBNVG systems, consisting of high-performance, white phosphor image intensifier binoculars, modular uncooled thermal imaging sensors and common external power supplies – providing Marines improved mobility and situational awareness during night operations.
“Marines need to quickly understand their surroundings and act to engage their targets – no matter the light conditions – and Elbit Systems of America’s SBNVG provides this power in a lightweight, adjustable system that is an ideal upgrade,” explained President and CEO, Raanan Horowitz.
