ITT Corp. was awarded a $36.2 million contract from the U.S. Navy to supply its AN/AVS-9 night vision image intensifier sets, the Department of Defense said Monday.
The AN/AVS-9 system is a night vision system consisting of a binocular imaging assembly, a helmet mount, a low profile power pack, a carrying case, and ancillary equipment. It is used by Navy and Marine Corps helicopters as a pilot's visual aid during night operations, low-level, and nape-of-the-earth flight. This system also provides imagery required for takeoff, landing, and hover as well as en-route flight.
Work will be performed in Roanoke, Va., and is expected to be completed by June 2016.
