ROANOKE, Va., 14 Aug. 2009. ITT Corp. won $43 million in follow-on orders from the U.S. Army's Research, Development, and Engineering Command Acquisition Center for the Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG), and associated spare parts.

"Our unmatched capability, technology, and customer support are at the heart of these most recent awards," says Mike Hayman, president of ITT's Night Vision business. "By continuing to deliver the industry's most advanced night vision goggle, we are providing our warfighters with unrivalled capabilities required for current and future battlefield operations."

ENVG optically combines an image intensification image, and proven thermal infrared technology, allowing for improved mobility and situational awareness—through clear target detection and improved target recognition, says a representative.

The ENVG combines both technologies into one helmet-mounted unit, allowing warfighters to complete their missions even when confronted by low-light or obscured conditions.
