Vuzix Corporation today announced its new Tac-Eye Monocular Display System. The Tac-Eye ST is a see-through augmented reality (AR) enabled monocular Video Eyewear that is expected to be used in a variety of defense, security and industrial applications where rugged hands free video displays are needed. Building from Vuzix' award winning technology in AR-enabled video eyewear, the new display will enable users to view the real world scene while also viewing relevant computer generated information, graphics and alerts.

The Tac-Eye ST is a ruggedized monocular see-through head mounted display for defense, security, surveillance and industrial applications. Designed to clip-on to safety glasses or helmets, the monocular display will improve the user's situational awareness over current monocular models. Part of Vuzix' Tac-Eye product line, the unit will also provide unprecedented connectivity, connecting to any device with VGA or composite video out capability. The Tac-Eye ST is a SVGA monocular with a 32-degree field of view (FOV). It will ship with an optional tracker for full AR capability.

Paul J. Travers, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The Tac-Eye ST fills a need that our defense and security customers have been asking for. Situational awareness is critical to a user's safety in the field, and their ability to act and react quickly. We are pleased to be able to deliver the see-through binocular sooner than we anticipated."
