Elbit Systems of America to Develop Sensors for Army’s IVAS 2.0
Elbit Systems of America has secured a $10 million contract from SOSSEC Inc. to develop sensors for the U.S. Army’s wearable heads-up display.
Under the contract, Elbit America will develop multiple cameras for laboratory and field testing and experimentation. The hardware will be part of an Advanced Low Light Level Sensor that is intended to support the Army’s Integrated Visual Augmentation System 2.0.
SOSSEC secured an other transaction authority agreement from the Department of Defense to manage the Systems of Systems Consortium and the Sensors, Communications, and Electronics Consortium.
Work will be performed in Roanoke, Virginia, and is expected to be completed in 2025, Elbit Systems said Monday.
The ALLLS is a component of the IVAS 2.0 concept that integrates situational awareness tools and digital sensors to create a single operational picture. IVAS 2.0 is envisioned as a head-mounted display that would give soldiers critical data that would allow them to improve decision-making based on environmental conditions.
According to the Army’s Program Executive Office Soldier, IVAS includes a ruggedized heads-up display and a portable compute pack, a wearable battery, a squad radio, an immersive virtual trainer and ancillary software.
Elbit Systems of America is the U.S. subsidiary of Israel-based company Elbit Systems. The American company offers electro-optics, precision targeting systems, C4I, tactical communications, unmanned solutions and training and simulation services to clients in the defense sector.
Elbit America is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, and has offices in Florida, Alabama, Virginia, Texas and New Hampshire.
