The Army wants to buy 40,000 ‘mixed reality goggles’ | Army Times

Must Read

Starting next year, the Army wants to purchase enough augmented reality, “do-it-all” goggles to give to nearly half of all close combat forces. The service released its fiscal year 2021 budget, and in it, it requested for 40,219 Integrated Visual Augmentation Systems (IVAS). The budget will go through “lengthy scrutiny” and changes before it is made official though. Army brass have said that the goggles would be given to “top tier” units and then disseminated across close combat forces. Developers have been testing ways for squads and units to share information more efficiently through these goggles. They are also including a weapons sight view for soldiers to see through smoke and dust and rain, and in daytime and nighttime environments, so that no matter the scenario, the soldier can acquire their target.
