The US Department of Defense allocated $ 880 million for the purchase of 40 thousand extended vision systems for infantry soldiers, which allow them to receive tactical data and monitor the battle, being inside an armored personnel carrier or behind an obstacle.

Military goggles IAVS (Integrated Augmented Vision System) are designed exclusively for melee forces. They connect to cameras, night vision devices, thermal imagers and other armored vehicle systems, allowing soldiers to see a clear picture of what is happening outside without leaving the cockpit..
