BAE Systems has started to test night vision goggles for the Typhoon fighter jet, built by a consortium of companies including BAE and EADS.

The tests at BAE’s Warton, U.K. facility are intended to evaluate the FENN NG2000Ti goggles‘ ability to give pilots X-ray vision at night, BAE said Thursday.

According to the company, the goggles are designed to work with the Typhoon’s Helmet Mounted Symbology system and night compatible cockpit.In Australia, BAE will start testing a drone this summer it intends to fly at up to seven times faster than the speed of sound.Taranis will fly over a desert in the country four years after the company tested another drone over that desert.
