This Army unit will be the first to get the most ever advanced night vision goggles, with thermal | Army Times

The 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley is receiving a helmet and goggle system that allows them to shoot from the hip, around corners and acquire targets at speeds not seen before.

They will be the first to try out Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binoculars, or ENVG-B, and universal helmet mount and the Family Weapons Sight-Individuals that will allow Rapid Target Acquisition to be fed into the goggle view. Shooters in a test using the new goggle saw 100 percent improvement on M4 carbine qualification, 300 percent improvement on detecting targets and 30 to 50 percent decrease in time to employ their weapon.
