FOX News: High-tech military goggles combine night vision, thermal imaging

BAE Systems is developing state-of-the-art goggles for the U.S. Army that combine night vision and thermal imaging technology.

The Army has awarded the defense technology specialist a five-year contract worth up to $434 million for the system, which will give soldiers faster and more accurate targeting. The tech will work in all weather and lighting conditions, according to BAE.

A BAE spokesman told that the high-tech goggles are expected to be in the hands of servicemembers in late 2016 or early 2017.

WNU Editor: One of the advantages that US forces have had in recent years is the ability to see the enemy at night. This advance makes it even harder for the enemy to hide.
