Elbit America to supply night vision systems to U.S. Marine Corps

Elbit Systems announced today (Tuesday) that its U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America, was awarded an order valued at about $41 million for the supply of night vision systems and various spare components to the U.S. Marine Corps. The order will be executed in Roanoke, Virginia and will be supplied by March 2022.

The order is part of a $249 million five-year Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract from September 6, 2019, under which the U.S. Marine Corps are supplied with Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggle (SBNVG) systems consisting of white phosphor image intensifier binoculars, modular uncooled thermal imaging sensors and common external power supplies – providing marines with improved mobility and situational awareness during night operations.

Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America, said "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."
