VSI to provide Night Vision Cueing and Display units

  • 10-Dec-2009 10:26 EST

The Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, MD, awarded Vision Systems International LLC (VSI) a $6.7 million contract for Night Vision Cueing and Display (NVCD) units, including hardware and associated support equipment. VSI will provide image-intensified night vision with symbology insertion, expanding the capability of the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System for 24-h operations. The NVCD system provides 40-degree field-of-view night vision capability in a lower profile and lighter weight package than traditional aviator night vision goggles. The system enables the pilot to cue onboard weapons and sensors against enemy aircraft and ground targets without aggressively turning the aircraft or place the target in the head-up display field of view for designation.
