Exelis wins Italian Army night vision order
ITT Exelis (XLS) has received a contract from Selex ES to manufacture the binocular i-Aware tactical mobility night vision goggle (TM-NVG) for the Italian Army’s Future Soldier programme.
The i-Aware TM-NVG is an advanced, multi-purpose night vision goggle that connects the individual soldier to the larger tactical network. Providing enhanced situational awareness to the warfighter, the i-Aware TM-NVG can be a part of the complete soldier system or used as a stand-alone night vision goggle. A key benefit of the goggle is its ability to increase operational effectiveness in both nighttime and daytime missions. It provides the soldier with real-time video access to critical tactical intelligence and the capability to share video from the individual soldier to the tactical network.
“For more than 50 years, Exelis has been advancing night vision technology to support the missions of our domestic and international customers,” said Nick Bobay, President of the Exelis Night Vision & Tactical Communications Systems division.
