SOFIC 2014 – Six15 JTAC Kit

Six15 Technologies has developed a kit for use by JTACs consisting of their new Tactical Battlefield Computer and Odin see through display. The kit creates augmented reality by feeding data through the computer to the Odin to provide the user with actionable intelligence. I had a chance to try it on for a demonstration and it was cool to see the icons in the HUD that popped into view with additional info when I looked in their direction .

    how heavy was the Odin on the face? could you run and keep them on your face? also did you by chance get to wear them under a helmet?

    How is it compared With BDA’s MTS?

    Top notch kit. Great designs.

    Great idea, but what happens when you bring your eye to your weapon optic; is the monocle detacheable?

    Otherwise, very cool idea, this sort of tech is only limited by imagination in terms of applications. I’m training as an aircrewman in the RAF; I can imagine there are plenty of applications for aircrew outside of the standard HUD that dont require massive HMCS helmets, seems like they are the preserve of jet jockeys at present!

      It projects information into your field of view. The “monocle” itself is see-through, so no problem, no distortion. If you were to find it distracting, remove the glasses. Our guy puts them on as needed and then switches them out as needed.
