Aside from shaping weapons for US army so they can protect and keep the whole country safe and guarded at all cost, there are various technologies which were developed to provide them an edge. It is interesting that even in the event of combat, technologies still emerge to provide them with better tactics and plan to defend themselves. Anyway, there is this specific tool that stands as heads up display military.
This can also be referred to as the Tactical Augmented reality wherein it provides armies better sense in locating their position even under foggy circumstance. With this device attached to their head, they can determine their foes and team so that the mission will turn out a success and smooth sailing.
This innovation by the US army aims to lessen chances of getting into any avoidable casualties within the team. It will help in letting everyone move cautiously and precisely without being too worried that their team may catch on bullets accidentally or something of that sort. Somehow, you would notice how much thought were actually placed right through this project.
Their system is made out of a small eyepiece and is attached to the helmet of every soldier. Within the eyepiece is a map overlaid on the vision of those wearing it. From there, they can see some information about the target through a GPS tracking mechanism. This is basically the same when tracking the data of a teammate.
The main reason why this thing was developed is basically to replace the old model of the GPS device used by soldiers. The previous ones were handheld and it kind of does involve various inconveniences if you compare it with the TAR system. This even is wirelessly connected to a tablet which soldiers usually wore around their waste.
Additionally, the system is connected with the thermal site right on their rifle. With that, armies gather several more data like the image of their target and the distance they occupy. All are visible right on the eyepiece. And all these information may even be shareable to the entire members of the team which is impressive.
Somehow, an additional eyepiece has just make an attack even more formidable. Several moves are being read ahead of time. Somehow making things check mate was made easier with these technologies. It can create a better communication along with the other soldiers to come up with a better strategy to win in the field.
Well, this eyepiece was basically an improvised version with another equipment developed from back when which they call as CERDEC. Since the main challenge on the previous design was with its size, the TAR had found a way to make things shrink smaller so it would be more convenient to use.
They even made the resolution into an impressive end result as because it has this high definition monochrome. Thus, they can use it even during daylight because the data on the eyepiece is bright enough to support that. And there was a success in developing of full color units which makes the equipment do entirely great job even underway.
