Honeywell will provide virtual reality display systems for military ground vehicles under an agreement with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
The company said Thursday the Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program works to enhance survivability, agility and mobility of ground vehicles through a 360-degree outside view for drivers.
“The development of virtual window technology is a significant shift in the concept of design for military ground vehicles,” said Carey Smith, Honeywell president of defense and space.
“No longer would drivers of these ground vehicles need to rely on the view through the windows alone.”
The first phase of the program started on July 2015 and will go on until June 2016.
