The ones the USMC are using are from NVEC right here in the USA, which licensed them from ITL.  They also made some improvements over the original design.

And last I checked you need a whole lot of money and a government PO to buy one.

When was the last time you checked?
How much does a high quality IR laser run these days?
(hint: SF L72 head alone is almost a grand, Aimpoint LPI is over $1200)
How about the NV capable reflex sight?
(hint: Aimpoint M2 and EOTech 55x are over $350)
How about combining the two into a single compact unit?
(hint: I can't think of one other than the MARS)

Doesn't matter because the price has always been $1065 for the NVEC MARS, and that is obviously not a whole lot of money for this kind of product (same price IR or visible laser).  Yes, you do need a purchase order.
