The Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS), an augmented reality goggle based on Microsoft’s HoloLens that stands poised to redefine close combat force capabilities, recently underwent punishing cold weather testing at the Army Test and Evaluation Command's Cold Regions Test Center at Fort Greely, Alaska.    “To me, the IVAS program is one of the most revolutionary things we’ve done for the dismounted close combat force since the inception of night vision,” said Col. Troy Denomy, IVAS product manager under Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier. “It’s not just a night vision device or a situational awareness tool, it’s combining all of that into one system.”

Soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division used the latest prototype of the Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) during a trench clearing exercise in October at Fort Pickett, Va. The event was part of a larger Soldier Touch Point, the third major milestone in the development and testing of the IVAS, which will undergo one more STP in the spring before initial fielding next year.
