Elbit Systems unveils helmet-mounted sensor system

Elbit Systems has unveiled a new helmet-mounted sensor system for armored vehicles.

IronVision is a 360-degree panoramic situational awareness system "that enables tank and infantry crewmen to 'see-through' their vehicle's armor in real time, creating a complete and clear visualization of the battlefield," according to an Elbit news release.

IronVision collects data from sensors around the vehicle, and projects them to the wearer in a full-color display.

"IronVision displays and tracks the positions of various features of interest, ranging from a single person standing or crawling several meters near the vehicle to a moving vehicle located 150-300 meters away," according to the company releaseElbit said. "By using the helmet, the wearer obtains complete freedom of movement and is able to shorten the sensor-to-shooter cycle, all while remaining fully protected under closed hatches."
