Rockwell Collins has introduced its combat helmet-mounted Integrated Digital Vision System (IDVS) for warfighters.
The advanced display system combines real-time mission data with multispectral vision sensors into one view for greater situational awareness. The IDVS is the first hands-free helmet-mounted display system that fuses incoming data from various sources, such as a command center, other warfighters or UAS, with multispectral vision.
The system does this while automatically transitioning from dark to light environments in real time, allowing users to have a complete view of everything that is happening around them, the company announced Tuesday.
“In battle, warfighters are most effective and safe when they can stay focused on their surroundings at all times,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
“Our IDVS is a 24-hour system, leveraging proven technology to give users a view of their surroundings and the right information for them to stay safe and complete their mission.” Ridgeway added. A portion of the manufacturing will be completed at Rockwell Collins’ precision optics facility in Sydney, Australia.
The IDVS is designed with an open architecture to provide an easy upgrade path for future technologies that enhance situational awareness.
