A field testing on the Integrated Visual Augmentation System will happen in Fort Pickett, Virginia. The multi-functional goggle will see its first ruggedized test followed by the distribution of 40,000 devices across the service. Some of its features are it can monitor the state of the soldier, including hydration, fatigue, stress, and temperature. Another feature is a Solder Borne Sensor, a micro-drone controlled with IVAS. Soldiers will be able to see from the drone’s point of view as it performs midair reconnaissance.
