ADELAIDE, Australia, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Rockwell Collins debuted its new combat helmet-mounted Integrated Digital Vision System for troops on Tuesday.

The new gear combines mission data and multi-spectral vision into an advanced display system while offering a 24/7, hands-free, seamless transition from dark to light environments, Rockwell said in a statement.

The announcement of the array was made at Land Forces 2016 in Adelaide, Australia.

The system is the first hands-free, helmet-mounted display system that fuses incoming data from various sources such as a command center, other troops or drones with multi-spectral vision.

It does all that while automatically transitioning in real time from dark to light environs.

The system build's upon Rockwell's aerospace and defense vision technologies, which include the F-35 Lightning II helmet and civil aircraft head-up displays.

The vision system is designed with an open architecture to provide an upgrade path for future technologies, Rockwell said.
