Honeywell, Army Install Situational Awareness Tech on Bradley Fighting Vehicle - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe U.S. Army‘s Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center has partnered with Honeywell‘s aerospace business to install a sensor-based vision system aboard the Bradley fighting vehicle.

TARDEC said Monday its Mission Enabling Technologies-Demonstrator team integrated Honeywell-developed helmet vision technology with a system of 360-degree stereo sensors.

The sensors gather situational awareness imagery that a pair of holographic optical devices then project into a users’ eyes to allow for depth perception.

The installation aims to demonstrate a new approach to support closed-hatch driving, wherein a vehicle maneuvers with limited vision due to all top hatches being closed for increased defense.

Honeywell originally developed the technology’s prototype under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency‘s Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program.

Tests for the system on the Bradley will continue over the summer.
