ITT awarded 100 percent of Majorbus aviation order for night vision tubes
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) today announced that its night vision division was awarded a $5.5 million Majorbus order from the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command (CECOM) Acquisition Center in Fort Monmouth, N.J. ITT was awarded 100 percent of the order for aviation image tubes, which is the heart of the night vision goggle. The order will provide replacement spares in support of the military’s reset initiative to repair and refurbish all battle-worn equipment.
The spare Generation 3 image intensifier tubes are for aviation night vision goggles, such as the AN/AVS-6 and AN/AVS-9. All U.S. military service branches will requisition their need for spare image tubes from this supply, maintained by the CECOM Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC). In accordance with current military specifications, ITT’s Generation 3 image intensifier tube is the highest performing aviation tube on the market.
“This award exemplifies our commitment to serve military aviation on what we believe to be the first of many aviation orders in support of reset initiatives,” said Mike Hayman, president and general manager of ITT Night Vision. “We are pleased to provide our highest performing aviation tube to help protect our nation’s warfighters.”
ITT Night Vision, based in Roanoke, Va., is the world’s leading developer, producer and supplier of Generation 3 image intensifier technology for U.S. and allied military forces as well as the homeland security market. The company has provided premier night vision solutions to the U.S. military for more than 45 years, and produced and delivered its one millionth Generation 3 image intensifier tube in 2007.
