US tested the system "virtual window"

51
The American futuristic concept GXV-T is getting closer to reality. According to the portal shephardmedia.com, Honeywell has conducted field tests of the virtual window (eng. - virtual window) for a promising combat vehicle.


According to Brian Alex, Technical Director of R & D at Honeywell, the goal of the research was to find out if the driver could drive a windowless vehicle with the same comfort and confidence as if he were driving a regular car.
In Honeywell they report that the tests were successful - all pilots were able to overcome the route, which passed through rough terrain in the desert. ATVs moved at a speed of 56 km / h, while there were no windows in them - the image was fed from the cameras to the display, acting as a viewing window.

US tested the system "virtual window"

Quad bike demonstrator technology "virtual window".


GXV-T (Ground X-Vehicle Technology) is a project of the Defense Advanced Defense Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense. On the basis of the concept, it is planned to create a “military transport of the 21st century”, whose vitality will be ensured not by armor, but by speed and maneuverability.
On the video demonstrating the capabilities of the GXV-T, the developers showed it in the form of an armored capsule on an adaptive wheeled chassis. The advantage on the battlefield of the new machine should provide the technology of early detection of the enemy, as well as high mobility and maneuverability, allowing you to go behind enemy lines even over rough terrain. The GXV-T’s armament may consist of various combat modules (the type of weapons will change depending on the tasks), transfers "Warspot"

    Promising development. It is logical to replace windows with images from cameras that are built into the case. Or groups of cameras in one direction


    With the ability to enlarge the image for example

      It’s not testing the view from the cameras to the monitor, it’s testing additional reality, marking targets, course, etc.,
      and most likely it will be implemented in helmets, and not on monitors like here

          ... I'm sorry, not the substance of the issue, but if the desktop is a "table", then why is the picture on it called "wallpaper" ?! stop This, Mlyn, is a tablecloth !!!!
          Or if it is a WINDOW, then not a wallpaper, but a curtain laughing
          Well, not the point ...
          Technology is likely to find its application.
          I have a feeling that the Americans really want to distance themselves from reality, that they don’t know what else to invent ... They don’t do anything on their own (they don’t even want to watch it themselves), but just press the buttons ....
          This will destroy them in the end.

    At one time, the motto of Hanevel was unofficially approved on the market -
    "We can handle any kickbacks."
    This was of course relative to the markets of third countries, however, such a phenomenon is booming rapidly in the own arms market.
    And how not to open a mouth on such a gigantic military budget as the United States.

    The American futuristic concept GXV-T is getting closer to reality.

    Isn't the same control implemented in Armata? So they have been doing it for a long time, what is futurism? What more screens and stuck with them more space? The only thing is to stitch images from different cameras, but this is now not a problem at all.

        "augmented reality" are beautiful words. What exactly is it in this project? I only see that they took the image from several cameras and broadcast them on several docked screens. The edges of the video sequences from the cameras are stitched to create the illusion of a continuous image. But all this has long been done, what is futurism?

          And I see that friendly units and enemy targets are superimposed on the terrain image, plus additional information, such as the necessary trajectory. That allows you to instantly respond to threats and increases the level and speed of interaction of combat units.
          And Armata doesn’t. It is not much necessary to display the image from the camera on a single black and white monitor of the mind. This is even Syrian barmalei know how to do.

          This has so far been implemented in several tanks, an F-35 airplane, and all, probably. There is a psychological factor: people are used to seeing with their eyes at least through transparent glasses or periscopes. But not through the processed image. The video is IR. It is not equivalent to the eye. This is a computer processing for our eyes.

            This is probably true. I remember that my friend’s father told me (he was a pilot of the Apache helicopter) that the difficult moment in training was getting the eyes and brain to get used to a special device (part of the helmet) through which you need to look with one eye.
            I think he talked about it (pictured)

              I myself experienced this a little bit in the 90s. They gave us night vision goggles on a jeep. For the commander. But he gave everyone a try. Drive a jeep off-road without headlights.
              I was terribly tensed, my head hurt. Then the reverse adaptation - also not immediately.

                I’ll write it once because you already got your fapanes on the Fu-35. Crap Fu-35 is brazenly called Itrebitel, it’s not a “haul” of chugeniye and tens of hundreds of kilometers without the slightest danger, it’s a real battle with the one who can destroy you. To do this, only the most adapted to high load, high load on the Muscovite are selected for fighter pilots (it’s not just for you to twist levers and turn the helm), and have an outstanding reaction close to “foresight”. And now we take your Fu-35 mega-crap and "add up" time to digitize the image with cameras + time to process computers + time to issue "augmented reality" to monitors. No matter how little this time, at those speeds that squeeze Fighters out of their steel cars, this can often become fatal.
                I repeat once again, so as not to be forgotten, the Fu-35 has the audacity to position itself as a fighter, but not as a bomber for transporting missiles !! am
