Wearable Devices Set to Improve Soldiers' Situational Awareness
The U.S. Army Research’s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) has been developing a helmet-mounted display called the Tactical Augmented Reality (TAR), which has recently undergone user testing. It provides soldiers with visual information such as an integrated map, navigation, and 3D surface models, to help improve their situation awareness and enhance operations. TAR will be able to replace a number of pieces of equipment, such as a GPS device and night-vision goggles (NVG), to reduce the amount of technology that a soldier has to carry.
