  • Urban Leader Tactical Response, Awareness & Visualization (ULTRA-Vis)

    The Urban Leader Tactical Response, Awareness and Visualization (ULTRA-Vis) program has developed a prototype tactical augmented reality system for use by Soldiers in the field. The ULTRA-Vis system overlays full-color graphical iconography onto the local scene observed by the Soldier. To enable this capability, the program developed and integrated a light-weight, low-power holographic see-through display with a vision-enabled position and orientation tracking system. Using the ULTRA-Vis system, a Soldier can visualize the location of other forces, vehicles, hazards and aircraft in the local environment even when these are not visible to the Soldier. In addition, the system can be used to communicate to the Soldier a variety of tactically significant (local) information including imagery, navigation routes, and alerts. Five ULTRA-Vis prototype units are scheduled to be evaluated in realistic training activities in an August 2013 operational utility assessment.
