Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that its subsidiary Elbit Systems UK Ltd. was awarded a follow-on contract valued at approximately $19 million (approximately £17 million) to supply Night Vision Goggles (NVG) and through-life support to the British Army. The contract will be executed over a 18-month period.

Under the contract, Elbit Systems UK will supply the lightweight micro binocular XACT nv33 NVGs in a helmet-mounted configuration. XACT nv33 NVG are designed to enable troops to operate effectively in low-light conditions at a tactical level, maximizing their mission efficiency in both dismounted and mounted roles. Products from the XACT family are already in operational use with a number of NATO members including the Netherlands and Germany.

Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK, said: “This contract award follows the successful and rapid delivery of our night vision goggles to the British military, and builds on our track record of efficiency, our domestic manufacturing capabilities and our proven and cutting-edge equipment.”
