The Ukrainian military may be interested in taking Microsoft`s augmented reality technology into battle, with reports it is considering equipping tank commanders with the software giant`s HoloLens headset to give them a 360-degree view of the battlefield
Ukrainian company Limpid Armor recently showed off its Circular Review system, which essentially consists of an armored helmet integrated with a HoloLens headset. This is hooked up to a system of cameras mounted to the sides of armored vehicles to provide the wearer with a complete view of their surroundings
Inside the headset, the wearer is given provided with telemetry and other situational information, including a ”look, lock and launch” system, automatic target tracking and the ability to view video from other battlefield units, such as drones.
The system would also allow tank commanders to track and highlight the position of both allies and enemies at a distance of up to 300m, and offer both optical and thermal imaging modes.
