Rockwell Collins in Australia unveils Augmented Reality Orientation System for the dismounted soldier
BRISBANE, Queensland, Australia (Sept. 23, 2014) – Rockwell Collins today unveiled the Rockwell Collins Augmented Reality Orientation System, an industry leading situational awareness capability for the dismounted soldier. The new system is on display at the Land Forces 2014 trade show in Brisbane, Australia.
The Augmented Reality Orientation System fuses an augmented display solution with military data links in real time to provide a full 360-degree situational awareness capability to modern warfighters. Coupled with a Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) camera, situational awareness information is fused with a day or night view and displayed as a digital image to provide operators with a tactical edge.
The system, developed by Rockwell Collins in Australia with research assistance from the Engineering and Human Interface Technology Laboratory of the University of Tasmania, Australia, has been designed to operate “out of the box” with Australian Defence Force (ADF) in-service situational awareness and targeting systems including the Patrol Persistent Surveillance System and FireStorm™ Digital Joint Fires Targeting System.
Visitors to Land Forces 2014 are invited to stop by Stand 1K9 to inspect the Augmented Reality Orientation System, and to see how Rockwell Collins is providing tailored solutions that provide customers with the right information at the right time.
