There’s an old saying that “seeing is believing,” but in the case of the U.S. military it would be better to say “seeing is hitting” – the enemy, explains a new report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
The Army is announcing a new tech tool designed to increase Americans’ capabilities.
Called Tactical Augmented Reality, it does the job of night vision goggles, GPS and much more.
It even allows troops to see in the dark.
David Fellowes, an electronics engineer with the Army’s research and engineering command, said the sensors have been attached and the images miniaturized to fit into the tiny one-inch-by-one-inch eyepiece.
Previously, commercial technology allowed images to fit into a tablet or cell phone-sized screen.
But getting a high-definition image into the tiny eyepiece was a challenge that could not be met with commercial, off-the-shelf hardware.
The initial versions that were deemed successful came in black and white, and in a greenish monochrome version, and those units already have undergone field testing.
But officials said the goal right now is to develop advanced versions in full color and with a brightness level that can be seen in daylight.
