Glass For The Battlefield

  • Q-Warrior is a helmet mounted heads up display for combat soldiers.
  • The helmet highlights allied forces in blue and enemy forces in red.
  • It can help soldiers navigate by showing digital waypoints, areas of interest, and targets.
  • Through the helm soldiers will be able to see video feeds from nearby drones.
  • The height, altitude and speed of allied aircraft can be marked on screen to increase situational awareness.
