Honda

One of Roadshow’s favorite family sedans is getting a freshened look and a brace of new equipment.

The entire flight — barely skimming space with a peak altitude of 66 miles (106 kilometers) — lasted just 10 minutes. The booster landed vertically back at the launch complex after liftoff, and the capsule followed, parachuting onto the desert floor.

U.S. Army to start testing high-tech combat goggles

Oct. 12 (UPI) — Rollout and field-testing of the U.S. Army’s new targeting goggles — called the Integrated Visual Augmentation System — will begin next week, and they’ll be distributed across the branch starting next year.

The do-it-all equipment, nicknamed “Frankengoggle,” is designed to simulate the connected world of a fighter pilot in the sight picture of a combat soldier.

With a heads-up display and other technology, it is meant to bring situational awareness, normally found on fighter pilots’ goggles, to combat soldiers, Army officials have said.

The system will be unveiled at the Association of the U.S. Army conference next week, and then distributed to 40,000 soldiers across the Army starting in 2021.

The goggles, the product of a $128 million contract with CACI International Inc., were developed after prior attempts to replicate the fighter pilot experience were disappointments.

IVAS goggles tested by Army Rangers and Special Forces personnel
