Elbit Systems of America has been awarded a second production order worth approximately $54 million to supply Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems, spare parts, logistics support, and test equipment for the U.S. Army. This order is part of an Other Transaction Authority (“OTA”) contract announced by Elbit America on October 22, 2020, that could reach a maximum of approximately $442 million. The U.S. Army did not define an overall time frame for performance of the OTA contract.
“Elbit America’s ENVG-Bs provide Warfighters with unprecedented situational awareness during limited visibility conditions, increased lethality through faster target acquisition, and other game-changing advantages on the battlefield. We are eager to support the U.S. Army’s transition to higher ENVG-B production rates, which will create additional jobs at our Roanoke facility, and throughout our extended US-based supply chain, generating a positive economic impact in the communities they reside” said Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America.
The Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems provide U.S. warfighters with unprecedented situational awareness during limited visibility conditions and increased lethality through faster target acquisition.
