New design allows a soldier to digitally mark a target, and send those coordinates to a jet or a vehicle to carry out an attack.

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.
