United States Army can now see their enemies more clearly during day or night. Their new Night Vision Goggles make their perspective just like a game.
The US Army received a new wearable gadget that could help them to see their enemies during nighttime. These new Night Vision Goggles allow them to see the actual battlefield as a game ground, but still, the perspective is still very accurate for the battle situation.
The new Night Vision Goggles outline the enemies of the US Army with glowing light. Previously, the agency released a video of what the battlefield can look like through the lenses of the new Night Vision Goggles.
The US Army’s soldiers assigned to 4th Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 7th Infantry Division conducted a platoon live-fire exercise on Apr. 19. The experiment was conducted at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington. The soldiers were wearing the relatively new Enhanced Night Vision Goggles-Binocular.
On the other hand, the Night Vision experiment of the US Army was also posted by the Twitter account @lancer_brigade. It stated that the “Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binoculars continue the @USArmy’s effort to #modernize our fighting force!”
The US Military’s new Night Vision Goggles
The US Army first started fielding the ENVG-B. This innovation was specifically designed to replace the older monocular PVS-14 Night Vision devices, which were released back in 2019 at Fort Riley in Kansas.
The leaked video of the US Army’s Night Vision Goggles showed how accurate this wearable equipment is. This innovation takes advantage of the so-called “Outline Mode Fused + AR (rapid target acquisition)/RTA (augmented reality).” This feature is just one of the capabilities that the new ENVG-B Goggles have.
On the other hand, the military agency’s new equipment offers a larger field of view than traditional monocular goggles, moves away from the classic green glare, and lets troops more easily see in the dark and through common battlefield obscurants like dust, fog, and smoke.
The U.S. military agency also stated that the new goggles can also connect wirelessly to a soldier’s rifle through the Family of Weapon Sights-Individual for more accurate shooting and rapid target acquisition.
Thanks to the new Night Vision Goggles, the soldiers of the U.S. military agency can now take advantage of the picture-in-picture setup, allowing them to see what is in front of them. They can also see wherever their weapons are aiming at. If you will compare it to a game, this is like a cheat code that provides you an invisible line to see if your shot will hit the target, much like an invisible laser.
Aside from these, the military agency also experimented with connecting unmanned assets, like its pocket-sized Black Hornet drones, with the ENVG-B so that the soldier can see what the drone sees in the display for significantly improved situational awareness.
