US soldiers will receive Microsoft HoloLens glasses for combat operations

Augmented reality in real combat is no longer a fantasy, but the everyday life of the US Army, which has adopted the Microsoft HoloLens headset and has been using it for more than two years. Thanks to the innovation, American soldiers were able to quickly receive visual information.

According to Bloomberg, Microsoft has won a bid for a two-year $ 480 million contract from the US government to supply the Pentagon with 100, 000 headsets.

Thus, the US military intends to significantly increase its combat capabilities by adding HoloLens night vision, thermal scanning, body monitoring and hearing protection functions.
