Exelis Receives $28 Million International Order For I-Aware® Tactical Mobility Night Vision Goggles

Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has been awarded a direct commercial contract valued at $28 million to provide i-Aware® Tactical Mobility Night Vision Goggles (TM-NVG) to an international customer. Delivery is scheduled to take place during 2014.

The i-Aware TM-NVG is an advanced, multipurpose night vision goggle that connects individuals to the larger battlefield network, enhancing situational awareness for both the soldier and command and control elements. This lightweight Generation 3 Night Vision Goggle can be operated independently or as part of a larger network while providing integrated color video, advanced imagery displays, and shared situational awareness. Other features of this include video import and export capability, GPS viewing, mapping, command text messages and target information with video input from weapon sights to view around corners.

Additionally, the TM-NVG may be used as part of a system that includes the Exelis SpearNet Team Member Radio. SpearNet is a compact data network radio that can transmit voice as well as streaming video, allowing commanders to maintain secure communications and see what dismounted soldiers see, in real time. The mesh network radio is designed specifically for operating in close quarters such as urban environments, tunnels and ship boarding where traditional radios face connectivity challenges.

“Our advanced goggle provides this international customer with an increased operational effectiveness using the latest in night vision technology while still providing the ability to build to a system with increased capabilities,” said Nick Bobay, president of the Exelis Night Vision and Tactical Communications Systems division.
