SRI International awarded contract to support U.S. Army IVAS program


SRI International has received an award to deliver digital night vision camera prototypes to support the U.S. Army’s IVAS (Integrated Visual Augmentation System) program. The award was issued by SOSSEC, on behalf of the Night Vision and Electronic Sensor Directorate (NVESD).

In support of the program, SRI will design a low-light-level CMOS image sensor and integrate the device into a custom camera module optimized for low size, weight and power (SWAP), the organization said in a statement.

The Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) is designed to incorporate head, body, and weapon technologies on individual soldiers. It is a single platform that the warfighter can use to fight, rehearse, and train.
