Though the Royal armed forces have experimented with augmented reality in the past, and indeed the implementation of BASTION II in many Schwerpunkt vehicles is augmented reality de-facto, only the most elite units were equipped with previous generation augmented reality for the individual soldier. The reasons were cost and complexity, with such systems costing several tens of thousands USD.

With civilian AR devices and applications coming into age and finally delivering on their touted advantages, Scherpunkt has moved to provide Nachmerean forces and other customers with an affordable, reliable and effective system to greatly multiply the observation, situational awareness and communication capability of the individual warfighter. The result is the Augmented reality Networked Thermal Goggles 21 “Telepat”, a cutting edge force multiplier.

The Telepat kit comprises 3 main components. The Goggles themselves, a control unit which may be attached at the back of the helmet or on webbing(connected to the goggles by wire), and a laser range finder unit that can be mounted on the weapon or on the side of the helmet(wirelessly connected to the control unit). The decision to separate the goggles from the other elements is meant to give flexibility in weight distribution to the operator.

The Goggles are the heart of the system, and combine extensive sensor and display technology. A thermal imaging camera, a high resolution visible light camera, 4 environmental cameras and 2 ambient light sensors provide visual information of the environment to the system. 2 IR eye tracking cameras, together with an IMU(Inertial Measurement Unit) give the system the info it needs about the users motions and eye movements.

Using this information the Telepat goggles employ a monocular wide field of view waveguide display system to deliver high resolution holographic visualizations onto the users field of view. Thanks to the wide field of view, powerful holographic processing unit and extensive environmental and user understanding sensors, the result is a highly seamless, comfortable and effective augmented reality.

Using it’s integral satellite navigation, mapping and compass, Telepat offers its wearer unmatched navigation and orientation while maintaining situational awareness. In addition the thermal imaging it provides is exceptional at its size and ease of wearing. The thermal imaging device has a 1800m maximum detection range but is especially effective as a short range thermal vision device at close ranges, with a 32 degrees FoV and adjustable focus.

It is however when used with BASTION II or similar C4I systems that Telepat truly shines.Telepat imparts upon the lone man abilities so far only available to a tank or IFV commander. BASTION II data of enemy and friendly forces, battle plans, radio coverage and more is three dimensionally displayed in the field of view. Moreover, using a simple wireless connected laser range finder on his helmet or rifle, the soldier can easily range and upload targets to the BASTION II system making calling for supporting fire or coordinating fire and maneuver easier than ever before. Like any other tactical computing device Telepat uses existing radio, cellular or satellite communications to connect to BASTION II. Using BASTION II and the thermal or day time camera the user can send video or images to other users, including augmented video and images.

The Telepat goggles can be worn in several ways, using a modular mounting system. They can be attached to the NVG mount of a helmet, worn with an elastic band like dust goggles, or use temples and worn like sunglasses. Being ballistically (for fragmentation) and laser radiation protected, they replace other goggles worn by soldiers, and use the ambient light sensors to provide dynamic shading. The system is extremely rugged, waterproofed to 1.5m submersion, and can operate in temperatures between -10 and +50 degrees celsius.

Control of the system’s operation and apps is done by use of a miniature touchpad and four buttons (duplicated on both the goggles and the control unit), or by hand gestures. The duplication in controls is meant to give flexibility in operation for different tactical and environmental conditions.

The control unit itself houses the computing elements of the system, as well as the power supply. The system is powered by a 4000mAh removable battery and a backup 500mAh integral battery. This set up allows for hot swapping batteries on the go without switching off the system. The result is a combined battery life of about 9 hours. The system is rechargeable by an included USB charging port that also acts as a data port.
