American army order for night vision equipment

ITT Night Vision : 29 September, 2008  (Application Story)
The AN/PVS-14 night vision monocular from ITT has been ordered by the US army for night and low-light level missions
ITT Corporation has announced that its Night Vision business was awarded an order from the US Army Research, Development & Engineering Command Acquisition Centre for the AN/PVS-14 night vision monocular. This order for ITT's most versatile night vision unit is valued at $153 million and is the latest under the Omnibus VII contract awarded by the US Army in September 2005.

The AN/PVS-14 allows users to adjust the gain control in varying light conditions in both urban and rural settings. These versatile devices can be hand-held, head or weapon mounted, or fitted to a camera.

"The Omnibus VII contract has been a pivotal tool for the Army to equip every serving unit with crucial night vision technology in support of night and low-light missions," said Mike Hayman, president and general manager, ITT Night Vision. "We are pleased to receive this latest order, and are proud to support our nation's protectors."

ITT has received Omnibus VII orders for more than 300,000 AN/PVS-14 monocular devices, 3,000 AN/PVS-7 goggles and 100,000 associated spare image intensifier tubes.
