Microsoft Is Planning To Sell $ 21.9 Billion AR Headsets to the US Army
These AR headsets allow them to see everything in the dark. And with these AR headsets, soldiers will be able to stream video.
Microsoft has been awarded an important and large contract by the US Army. The offer is that they will give the US Army 120,000 augmented reality AR headsets.
And in these ten years, the $ 21.88 billion contracts AR Headset is accounted for by the US Army's Integrated Visual Augmented System or IVAS. And this new contract will have a system of building a working production version, which will be as an attachment. And it's a deal that could change the whole picture of ground combat.
These headsets, based on Microsoft's Consumer-Facing HoloLens, have so much power that soldiers can see the map perfectly in thermal imaging overlays, and these AR headsets allow them to see everything in the dark. And with these AR headsets, soldiers will be able to stream video. Another thing is that the new song barrel attachment deserves praise because it allows the soldiers to see every corner accurately.
Microsoft said in a blog post after the agreement with the US Army on the Ar headset that the program will be able to share information and make any decisions at any time and in any situation and through it will be able to spread public awareness of various situations.
Microsoft has been working very closely with the US Army over the past two years. And they're talking about building equipment for soldiers that will make it easier for soldiers to navigate and help the US Army achieve its goals. And with this Ar headset, they will be able to acquire the necessary skills and prototyping capabilities will also increase.
Microsoft has a very good relationship with the US military. And in 2019, the tech company signed a contract stating that they will provide cloud services for the defense department. However, it is also true that Microsoft employees are not always interested in working with any organization that is affiliated with or affiliated with the military.
And what happened after the contract agreement of this Ar headsets or so close with the US Army was somewhat conceivable. More than 100 Microsoft engineers signed an open letter. In the letter, they appealed to their employer to cancel the IVAS agreement. They further said that the development of all weapons technology should be stopped and a separate and ethical board should be appointed.
They wrote in their open letter that our idea is that Microsoft is only supplying weapons technology to the US Army and increasing its capabilities. This is not right at all. As a result, the things we are giving to the country will only become fatal and the mortality rate will increase.
This is never desirable. The reasoning behind this is that they will not only work for the US Army's stockpile or development of weapons, or just because they did not come here to work and have a lot of demands on their work style.
