The estimates of numbers of devices to be fielded is all over the map. Jen Hudson cites a little # & $$$ allotted for ENVG-B, as usual, we unlike the Army cannot see in the dark or through obscurants. Visiting Fort Bragg this weekend maybe I can find out something useful about the drop test etc

with all Kopin's talk about he efficacy of Monocular Devices the military aspires to something more, what's the word? Stereoscopic. As the guy said "There is no one-eyed predator at the top of the food-chain.

"The Army is requesting to reprogram $104.6 million to procure 3,609 Enhanced Night Vision Goggle - Binocular (ENVG-B) systems to support an operational needs statement from Army Forces Command. New night vision goggles is one the earliest efforts within the Soldier Lethality CFT.
To pay for those new systems, the Army is cutting the funding — in the same amount — from the acquisition of a monocular night vision system, the request notes."
