US Army Places $256M Order for L3Harris’ Night Vision Goggles

The U.S. Army has placed its first order of L3Harris Technologies’ Enhanced Night Vision Goggle–Binocular worth $256 million under a full-scale production indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract worth a potential $886 million that the company won in December 2022. 

L3Harris pointed out that its ENVG-B systems’ figure of merit levels enable improved situational awareness at farther distances at night or in low-light conditions. More than 13,000 units of the night vision goggles have been delivered to the Army to date, L3Harris said Monday.

In September 2021, the service branch ordered L3Harris ENVG-Bs worth $100 million under the other transaction authority contract valued at a potential $442 million that the company secured together with Elbit Systems in October 2020.   

Christopher Kubasik, L3Harris chairman and CEO and a past Wash100 awardee, said the company’s continuing partnership with the Army and L3Harris’ internal technology investments will keep the ENVG-B ahead of adversaries’ capabilities in the future.    

The company’s Integrated Vision Solutions unit in Londonderry, New Hampshire, manufactures the night vision goggles, more than 20,000 units of which have been delivered to combat troops worldwide.

Under a collaborative project between L3Harris and the Army initiated in 2018, the company has also provided its Hawkeye III Lite Very Small Aperture Terminal to boost the service’s battlefield communications capabilities.
