BAE received $72 million in 2009 for initial production of the modules from the Army“™s soldier program executive office.
The modules weigh less than 5.5 pounds and allow users to locate targets in a variety of visibility obscured environments from up to 4.2 kilometers in daylight and 900 meters in darkness.
The devices contain a direct-view optic system, a night vision camera, a laser range finder, a digital compass and a GPS receiver.
BAE will perform work in Lexington, Mass., Nashua, N.H. and Austin, Texas.
Initial fielding of the units is slated for this month.
