BAE Systems sees success with night vision goggles

NEW HAMPSHIRE — BAE Systems is working on night vision goggles for use by the U.S. Army. The goggles allow users to utilize night vision and thermal imaging technology.

The company has been awarded a five-year contract by the Army that is worth up to $434 million. The goggles are designed to work to various weather conditions and with various lighting conditions. The company expects the devices to be in use by soldiers by late 2016 or early 2017.

The goggles will replace two devices currently in use. Each pair is designed to help soldiers target and engage an enemy.
