The equipment, designed to give our soldiers the edge in the field, will be developed in a scheme called Future Soldier Vision, expected to be ready by 2020.

It includes smart armour that’s both tough and light, a Google Glass-style headset that projects real time battle information onto the goggles while beaming video back to base, as well as a smart watch that reads soldiers’ vital signs, The Mirror reports.

The Future Soldier Vision concept provides the MOD and industry with an aim point for what the soldier could look like a decade from now.

It provides a platform to challenge what this future could be and how industry and academia could help the MOD to make it a reality.
