Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESLT) (TASE: ESLT) (“Elbit Systems”) announced today that its U.S. subsidiary, Elbit Systems of America LLC, (“Elbit Systems of America”), was awarded an order valued at approximately $107 million for the supply of Enhanced Night Vision Goggle – Binocular (ENVG-B) systems, spare parts, logistics support, and test equipment, for the U.S. Army.

The order will be executed in Roanoke, Virginia and will be supplied during the years 2023 and 2024.

This order is part of an Other Transaction Authority (OTA) contract that Elbit Systems of America received in 2020, with a potential value that could reach a maximum of $442 million.

This order attests to the quality of Elbit Systems of America’s technologies and their unique operational contribution, demonstrating the significant potential of our night vision activity.

Bezhalel (Butzi) Machlis, Elbit Systems President & CEO

The ENVG-B integrates powerful night vision capabilities and head-up situational awareness that allow soldiers to navigate and perform at their best in the modern, complex battlefield. ENVG-Bs are equipped with high performance white phosphor image intensifier tubes for better scene contrast providing soldiers better situational awareness in the dark, but also when there is fog, dust, or smoke. The ENVG-B system includes a wireless connection to soldiers’ rifle-mounted thermal weapon site and augmented reality overlay, enabling rapid target acquisition and improved situational awareness in various battlefield conditions.

Elbit Systems of America’s ENVG-Bs enable Warfighters to do more than just see in the dark. The systems include technology to enable faster target engagement, so users can easily identify friend & foe. The systems also incorporate augmented reality to accelerate nighttime movements.

Erik Fox, Vice President and General Manager

We have a long history of supplying the U.S. Army with game-changing capabilities and we’re continually refining our work to support next-generation Warfighter Information Systems, including advanced night vision solutions.

Our Roanoke-based team is poised to fulfill the U.S. Army’s transition to higher production rates, so we can get ENVG-Bs to our Troops as quickly as possible.

Raanan Horowitz, Elbit Systems of America’s President and CEO

ENVG-Bs under this production order will be produced in Roanoke, Virginia. The company will deliver on the contract all of 2023 and continue into calendar year 2024.
