Collins Aerospace to Build Digital Night Vision Tech for Navy, Marine Pilots

Raytheon Technologies' Collins Aerospace business received a contract to develop a digital technology for U.S. Navy and Marine Corps aircews to gain situational awareness when performing missions in a low-light environment.

Both military branches selected the Enhanced Visual Acuity system to help increase flight safety of pilots who fly rotary-wing and tiltrotor vehicles, Collins Aerospace said Monday.

The EVA technology will be built with a helmet-mounted binocular display designed to process high-resolution imagery and improve the pilot's ability to see in very low light conditions.

Collins Aerospace is scheduled to finish contract work by March 2023.
