Elbit Systems announced today that its U. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, was awarded delivery order valued at approximately $23 million for the supply of systems and various spare components to the US Marine Corps. The order will be executed in Roanoke, Virginia and will be supplied over the next ten months.

This order is part of the $249 million five-year Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggles Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract from September 6, 2019, that was awarded to the Night Vision Business of L3Harris Technologies several days before the finalization of the acquisition of that business activity by Elbit Systems of America.

Under this contract, the US Marine Corps will be supplied with a Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggle system that consists of a high-performance, white phosphor image intensifier binocular, a modular uncooled thermal imaging sensor, and a common external power supply. The system will provide Marines with “improved mobility and situational awareness during night operations,” Elbit said.
