Exelis has won a $28 million order from an unnamed international client for night vision goggles that are built to help troops monitor combat situations.
The company will build the i-Aware tactical mobility night vision goggles that work as standalone tools or as components of a battlefield network providing video and images, Exelis said Monday.
Nick Bobay, president of Exelis’ night vision and tactical communications systems division, said the company aims for the goggles to help its customer build up its operational tools..
TM-NVG goggles contain video import and export features and are designed with GPS viewing, mapping, command text message and target information features.
The technology is intended to work with the Exelis SpearNet Team Member Radio system for voice transmission and video streaming and operates in tough environments, Exelis says.
Exelis is scheduled to deliver the goggles to the customer in 2014.
