Taking the soldier into the digital battlefield, with new wearable technology -
being showcased by Israel-based company Elbit Systems
at the international Defence and Security Exhibition in London.
The company's Vice President Gil Maoz says the equipment - comprising of a visor, night vision goggles, wrist-mounted computer and gunsight
will give soldiers better information during combat.
Targets can be identified as friend or foe using augmented reality technology within the SmartEye ballistic visor.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) VICE PRESIDENT AT ELBIT SYSTEMS, GIL MAOZ, SAYING:
"So when he's aiming his weapon at the target he will see if it's one of our own forces or an enemy and therefore either protecting our forces and increasing safety or being far more effective towards the enemy. Our goal is to enhance a soldier's lethality and his survivability.
Elbit says the technology is not experimental
and has already been tried and tested by armed forces.
It's using the show as an opportunity to promote the equipment for its DOMINATOR warrior combat suite, hoping to catch the attention of the British military.
