ITT Corporation (ITT) has been awarded a $19.3 million order from the U.S. Army’s Research Development & Engineering Command Acquisition Center under the OMNI VII contract for AN/PVS-14 night vision monocular devices. Eighty percent of these goggles are required by the U.S. Air Force with the remaining quantities for the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army.
