BAE Systems Increases Production of Visibility Sensors for U.S. Army and Marine Corps Vehicles

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems was awarded another task order to produce the Driver’s Vision Enhancer Family of Systems (DVE-FOS), a system of infrared sensors that provide 24-hour all-weather visibility for operators of U.S. Army and Marine Corps vehicles.

“We are applying our low-cost, high-volume production expertise to rapidly deploy technologies that truly meet the needs of our warfighters”

BAE Systems has received cumulative orders for the DVE-FOS exceeding $140 million under a five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with the U.S. Army, resulting in the delivery of more than 3,500 systems and more than 26,000 line replaceable units. The U.S. Army acts as the acquisition authority to procure DVE systems for installation on a variety of combat and tactical wheeled vehicles for the Army and Marine Corps.

“We are applying our low-cost, high-volume production expertise to rapidly deploy technologies that truly meet the needs of our warfighters,” said Greg Zito, director for the DVE-FOS program in Austin, Texas, where the system is built.

DVE-FOS is a comprehensive suite of infrared sensors, displays, vehicle integration kits, and other equipment that enhances situational awareness by providing all-weather, day-or-night visibility to operators of combat and logistics vehicles.
