Raytheon’s new uniform system features a helmet-mounted monocle that would let soldiers target air strikes by simply moving their head and pressing a button.

The Advanced Warfighter Awareness for Real-Time Engagement (AWARE) system consists of a clear monocle attached to the helmet, a small computer strapped to the chest, and a smart phone-like device on the wrist. The monocle allows a soldier to digitally mark a target, and send those coordinates to a jet or a vehicle to carry out a strike.

The uniform was designed primarily to make troops more aware of their surroundings by offering three-dimensional visual and audio data. Rimas Guzulaitis, director of business development at Raytheon explains, ‘Ultimately, it’s about improving the safety of troops and their effectiveness in combat.’
