ITT Exelis has won a contract to provide mobile night vision goggles to Italy’s army for soldiers to use in both nighttime and daytime operations.
Binocular i-Aware Tactical Mobility Night Vision Goggles are designed for soldiers to access and share real-time video and use as a stand-alone night vision goggle, the company said Wednesday.
Selex ES signed a cooperation agreement with Exelis in October 2012 to bring the goggles into the Italian market.
“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 Exelis’ night vision and tactical communications systems division.
Italy is acquiring the goggles for its army's future soldier program, he added.
