Elbit America Bags USMC Contract, with THEON SENSORS being a Subcontractor

Elbit Systems of America (Elbit America) was recently awarded a five-year US$500 million IDIQ contract for the supply of the Squad Binocular Night Vision Goggle (SBNVG) to the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) through an international tender.
 
As its exclusive subcontractor, THEON SENSORS will provide Elbit America with its dedicated night vision binocular NYX in a Semi Knock Down Kit format. Final manufacturing and dissemination of the complete SBNVG solution will be performed at Elbit America’s Roanoke, Virginia facility.
 
THEON SENSORS will also provide its night vision spare and repair parts, logistics support and test article refurbishment throughout the contract term. Engineered with close-focus technology and an integrated IR illuminator, this night vision binocular delivers a tactical advantage in low-light and no-light combat scenarios, providing improved operational performance and situational awareness.
 
The contract is awarded by the U.S. Department of Defense. For the first delivery order following the contract, a total amount of US$126.8 million will be obligated.
 
THEON SENSORS has been partnering with Elbit America since 2018, where its NYX Night Vision Binocular Semi Knock Down Kit is manufactured by Elbit America and offered to the U.S. DoD and the USMC as F5032.
