Elbit Systems Of America has been awarded $49m contract to deliver additional night vision systems for the US Marine Corps (USMC).

Under the contract, Elbit Systems’ US subsidiary will supply its Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggle (SBNVG) systems to the USMC.

The new contract is part of a five-year $249m indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which was awarded in September 2019.

The initial contract to provide around 14,000 SBNVG was signed with L3Harris Technologies’ Night Vision business, which was later acquired by Elbit Systems of America.

Elbit Systems of America CEO and president Raanan Horowitz said: “This recent order for additional Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggles signifies that Elbit Systems of America is a partner of choice by the US Marine Corps.

“We are honoured that Marines are equipped with our night vision solutions and we are committed to continuing to provide our war fighters with the very best technology we have to offer.”
