The U.S. Army awarded a USD56 million to a team formed of Raytheon Land Warfare Systems and DRS Technologies to engineer, manufacture and develop the B-Kit 3rd generation forward looking infrared system, an upgrade to night vision equipment that will allow ground troops to discriminate between friend or foe at twice the distance of current systems.

Under the four-year engineering, manufacturing and development contract, the team will deliver B-Kit systems for platform system integration and testing. A two-year option to build additional systems for more comprehensive testing is also included.
