The new Vrgineers carbon fibre XTAL 3 CAVU mixed-reality headset will attempt to address calculation bottlenecks via high-performance graphical chip and AI ahead of launch in 2024.

Czech Air Force fighter pilots and US Navy V-22 Osprey operators will be among the target customers for Vrgineers’ XTAL 3 CAVU (Ceiling and Visibility Unlimited) mixed reality (MR) headset, the company claimed at I/ITSEC 2023 in Orlando, Florida.

Vrgineers has used the military training and simulation conference to unveil its latest head-mounted display (HMD), which it has been working on with graphical chip makers AMD and NVIDIA.

According to its manufacturer, the MR device has been designed to eliminate calculation bottlenecks and bring mixed-reality technology to the forefront of the industry using 24Mpix image sensors connected to Xilinx FPGA PCIe16x cards via optical cables.
