Intevac Receives $40 Million Digital Night Vision Contract
Intevac has announced it has received a $40 million contract award for the multi-year production of digital night vision cameras in support of the U.S. Government.
“This award represents the largest single booking to date for Intevac Photonics, and increases our Photonics backlog to the historic level of just over $83 million,” commented Timothy Justyn, executive vice president and general manager of Intevac Photonics. “This award closely follows awards for both the U.S. Army's IVAS ground soldier program, and the Apache Helicopter's Pilot Night Vision Sensor (PNVS) foreign military sales announced last December, demonstrating Intevac's commitment to delivering the latest digital night vision technology to our Warfighters.”
“We are very proud to have received this substantial order for our digital night vision technology,” added Wendell Blonigan, president and chief executive officer of Intevac. “With this new order and increased backlog, we now have multi-year visibility for our manufacturing operations, and continued validation of our digital night vision technology.”
Intevac's digital night-vision sensors, based on its patented Electron Bombarded Active Pixel Sensor (EBAPS®) technology, provide state-of-the-art capability to the most advanced avionic fighting platforms in the U.S. Department of Defense inventory.
