Recent Activity

In November 2018, Microsoft Corp. had received 0 million contracts to develop an Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS), for use in combat and military training in the US Army. The company is working on building a Google with a ballistic laser, digital cameras, 3D display, and hearing protection that had not to be mounted on a helmet. The system is intended to offer a view of remote areas, integrate both thermal and night vision cameras, and to track soldier vitals such as the heart and breathing rates.
