Raytheon, a business under RTX, has won $154 million contract to supply Commander's Independent Viewer (CIV) systems for U.S. Army Bradley Fighting Vehicles, enhancing battlefield capabilities with a 360-degree view and advanced targeting features.

The electro-optical/infrared sight system incorporates second-generation forward-looking infrared (FLIR) cameras and sensors to enhance the Bradley Fighting Vehicle's battlefield surveillance and targeting capabilities, providing a 360-degree view.

The CIV system claims to offer early threat detection, a comprehensive battlefield perspective, and all-weather performance, aiding vehicle commanders in identifying and neutralizing both stationary and moving targets under various conditions.

The production of these systems is set to occur in McKinney, Texas, with the initial deliveries expected by June 2026.
