Now, soldiers in the US military will probably know the exact position of the enemy when fighting off the battlefield.
The equipment is expected to be used for close-range combat forces, especially infantry. It is expected that tens of thousands of goggles will be distributed to help US soldiers see in the dark, check corners around them, and even project digital maps and other data in front of them.

Since these glasses used a feed from an omnidirectional camera mounted on an armored vehicle, a platoon of six soldiers could nest in the back of a Bradley or Stryker infantry vehicle and "see" through the side of the vehicle. grasp the situation of the battlefield.

Sergeant Sergeant Philip Bartel of the Combat Team of the Stryker 1-2 Brigade said: "Now soldiers will not have to get out of their vehicles in dangerous situations to try to observe the course of the war. can maneuver combat units and aim without having to leave safe places in armored vehicles. and increased combat effectiveness ".

The US Army has designed IVAS goggles that function similar to a fighter's overhead display (HUD). Like the HUD, the IAVS glasses project information including maps, video, and the immediate night vision of soldiers.

In fact, IVAS would give soldiers immediate access to vital combat information. Instead of having to search their pockets for a paper map, soldiers can quickly find a location to navigate through the digital map on IVAS without taking their eyes off the target.

IVAS can also take advantage of a rifle-mounted night-observing thermal scopes to directly observe the surroundings. Soldiers can aim rifles from any position on the battlefield, so connecting these scopes between soldiers can help increase the field of view. Soldiers can even use IAVS to take advantage of the tiny onboard cameras to monitor the battlefield.

With IVAS, soldiers in the vehicle can quickly observe the battlefield around them. For example, infantry, cavalry, ... all go behind armored vehicles.

They know where they are going and how to maintain their distance, but the soldiers inside the vehicle often rely on a single monitor or the surrounding fleets to get their real position. When the vehicle stopped or turned downhill, the soldiers had to quickly adapt to the change, even pinpointing the enemy's position.

The US Army is very optimistic about the IVAS system and is asking for $ 1.1 billion for the purchase of 40,000 units to equip soldiers in combat.
