New virtual-reality goggles bring AI to US Army training

The 82nd Airborne Division of the US Army is expected to trial the Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) next month in Fort Pickett, Virginia, USA.

Artificial intelligence (AI) powered goggles will allow soldiers to carry out combat missions.

Known as Soldier Touchpoint 2, the upcoming experiment will provide feedback to help PEO Soldier bring additional changes to the VATS heads-up display.

The Army will begin fielding 200,000 virtual reality headsets in 2021.

The goggles were designed to provide virtual objects superimposed on the real landscape.

According to the Program Executive Office Soldier officials, goggles and mini computer equipment would allow soldiers to navigate obstacle courses and land navigation.

The IVAS would aid the military’s modernization efforts and help to improve the soldier’s lethality.

U.S. Army AI Task Force Manager Brigadier General Matthew Easley claimed that the headsets reflect the role played by AI in improving military lethality.
