The deal forms part of the 2019 Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggles indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) agreement between the parties valued at $249 million, which is expected to last for five years. The Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggles contain “white phosphor image intensifier binoculars, modular uncooled thermal imaging sensors and common external power supplies”.

President and chief executive of Elbit Systems of America Raanan Horowitz welcomed the opportunity for Elbit Systems of America to support the Corps.

“Marines need to quickly understand their surroundings and act to engage their targets – no matter the light conditions – and Elbit Systems of America’s SBNVG provides this power in a lightweight, adjustable system that is an ideal upgrade,” Horowitz said.
