A "super vision" was created for the Israeli and American military. Video
The Israeli company Elbit Systems introduced the IronVision helmet-mounted system, which allows commanders of main battle tanks to see through armor.
The new system was developed on the basis of similar aircraft systems, including using technologies applied in the promising F-35 Lightning II fighter jets. The system consists of a helmet with a helmet-mounted display and a variety of cameras located on the body of an armored vehicle. Cameras provide all-round visibility. Information is displayed on the captain’s helmet display, and the image is shifted depending on the angle of inclination or rotation of the commander’s head.
The video image is transmitted to the helmet-mounted display in full color and has sufficient detail to show the individual fighters accompanying the enemy's armored equipment at a distance of up to 300 meters. According to Elbit Systems, IronVision will improve the combat effectiveness of armored vehicles.
Other details about IronVision are not specified. The system will be publicly presented at the Eurosatory Arms Exhibition, which will be held in Paris 13-17 in June of this year.
Last July, the United States Army Engineering Research and Development Center (TARDEC) conducted a round-trip system test on two M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles.
The new system will allow fighters in the troop compartment of an armored vehicle to navigate the terrain before the full opening of the ramp.
For testing, the military installed four infantry fighting vehicles in four cells, providing a circular view. In the landing compartment opposite the seats for the soldiers, the military hung up tablets on which a picture from the cameras was displayed. Each tablet simultaneously showed images from all cameras, and also displayed a map of the area.
