ITT unveils new line of next generation goggles at AUSA
ROANOKE, Va., Oct. 10, 2011- ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) unveils a new line of night vision goggles called i-Aware at the 2011 AUSA Annual Meeting & Exhibition. The new i-Aware goggles offer a spectrum of multipurpose night vision goggles and innovative visioning solutions for the U.S. military, first responders, homeland security, and international customers.
The i-Aware family of products are equipped with the capability to transmit and receive imagery from the soldier’s point of view, and also display live video feeds and geospatial intelligence information. In addition to the newer goggles, i-Aware products also offer an upgrade capability to the standard AN/PVS-14 goggle. This upgrade permits the goggle to be retro fitted with a clip-on display that can import colored imagery and video from the battlefield.
“ITT understands the challenges of not only conquering darkness, but also sharing timely imagery and information to protect and save lives,” said Bruce A. Wald, vice president and general manager of ITT’s Night Vision & Imaging business area. “The i-Aware product line allows the soldier or first responder the best light secure, night and visioning capability, along with the ability to view or share additional information on the same unit for enhanced situational awareness.”
The i-Aware product line uses standard interfaces to provide flexibility, expanded situational awareness and interoperability with other fielded systems. ITT has transformed the traditional night vision goggle into a multifunctional visualization device that can move battlefield information across different nodes.
