Integrated visual augmentation system soldier touchpoints.
Soldiers at Fort Pickett, Virginia are testing a Microsoft-designed prototype goggle, the Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS). New technology offers capabilities that troops need to regain and maintain over-match in multi-domain operations on battlefields that are becoming increasingly complex and unpredictable.
In addition, the headset’s augmented reality “fight-rehearse-train” system, which incorporates real-time mapping, is endlessly applicable for training and rehearsing operations, anywhere at any time. Credit: U.S. Army
