Work will be performed in Merrimack, New Hampshire and is expected to be completed over the next five years.  

The NTSU system builds upon the legacy of the combat-proven Night Targeting System (NTS). The improvements in the optics allow the warfighter a significant increase in ability to detect, recognize, identify and prosecute targets at stand-off ranges in all weather and lighting conditions.
