L3Harris Technologies recently delivered more than 1,500 combat-ready Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems to the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division unit, improving the soldiers’ situational awareness, mobility and protection.
The ENVG-B provides enhanced capability to the entire force by delivering imagery and data from the battlefield directly to the soldier’s eye. The system includes a new, high-resolution display and an embedded soldier wireless personal area network, rapid target acquisition and augmented reality algorithms to interface with the Army’s Nett Warrior.
The complete system will interface with the Army’s family of weapon sights, while enhancing interoperability and data sharing. The system also integrates with L3Harris’ AN/PRC-163 two channel leader radio which further extends the network across the battlefield.
“The ENVG-B is the most advanced night vision goggle ever developed for and fielded by the US Army, enabling a soldier to see and maneuver in zero and low-light situations,” said Lynn Bollengier, President, Integrated Vision Solutions, L3Harris.
“We have delivered more than 4,500 combat-ready systems to the US Army, which meet today’s urgent operational needs of our close combat forces,” added Bollengier.
