Clearly the US Government has a vested interest in not seeing Harris and L3 merge the image intensifier business:
Justice Department Requires Harris and L3 to Divest Harris’s Night Vision Business
The Department of Justice announced today that it is requiring Harris Corporation (Harris) and L3 Technologies Inc. (L3) to divest Harris’s night vision business in order to proceed with their merger.
The Department further said that, without the divestiture, the proposed acquisition would eliminate competition between the only two suppliers of U.S. military-grade image intensifier tubes, which are the key component in night vision devices such as goggles and weapon sights purchased by the Department of Defense (DoD) for the United States military.
I was surprised when I read about the merger, but not surprised at all about this decision.
Now, if I can just find someone that will sell me an F9800 M24H.
