Next week, at the international defense and security industry trade show Eurosatory, Elbit will unveil IronVision, the first Helmet Mounted Display (HMS) designed for the crews of armored vehicles. IronVision is a 360-degree panoramic situational awareness system, part of Elbit’s See-Through Armor (STA) architecture, that enables tank and infantry crewmen to “see-through” their vehicle’s armor in real-time, creating a clear and complete visualization of the battlefield, even when the hatches are down.
IronVision’s 360-degree, high-resolution imagery is projected in full color and zero latency to the wearer’s visor, offering a bright and vivid display of the surroundings in both day and night and all types of weather.
The new HMS is based on the proven sensors and system architecture that is already integrated with thousands of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft systems that are already in use by most modern air forces worldwide. IronVision incorporates advanced See-Through Armor (STA) technology that lets the wearers obtain full, real-time, Situational Awareness (SA) and locate, identify and track enemy targets.
Through its user-friendly interface, IronVision leverages the digital infrastructure of the vehicle by seamlessly integrating STA technology with existing C4I and warning systems, which creates a powerful cognitive simplifier for the commander, enabling him to make complex situation-dependent decisions in split seconds, and also leads to more freedom and fewer distractions for the driver.
