Ex­elis wins Ital­ian Army night vi­sion or­der

SP's MAI - - MILITARY UPDATES -

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.
