L3 Warrior Sensor Systems announced that the Korean National Police Agency in South Korea has placed an order for the company’s Ground Panoramic Night Vision Goggles (GPNVG) in support of the country’s counterterrorism mission. With a 97-degree panoramic field-of-view, the GPNVG provides the operator increased situational awareness during periods of reduced light and night operations.
“Our GPNVG offers an unmatched advantage for the operator,” said Serge Buchakjian, General Manager of International Solutions for Warrior Sensor Systems.
“The increased situational awareness gained from the wider field-of-view will enable the Korean National Police to enhance their operational effectiveness and help maintain the safety and security of their citizens,” he added.
Manufactured at Warrior Sensor Systems’ headquarters in Londonderry, New Hampshire, the GPNVG uses four image-intensified (I2) tubes to create the 97-degree field-of-view. The I2 tubes are manufactured at the company’s Electron Tube Operations facility in Tempe, Arizona. The GPNVG is currently used by U.S. Special Forces and national security forces across the globe.
