The demonstration was attended by Croatian Minister of Defense Mario Banožić, along with Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Croatian Armed Forces Lieutenant General Siniša Jurković and Commander of the Croatian Army General Boris Šerić.
The demonstration was divided into two parts: a theoretical presentation and a field demonstration where the Patria AMV 8×8 vehicle was equipped with Vegvisir system components, including cameras, sensors, and a mission computer.
Vegvisir is a Mixed Reality Situational Awareness System (MRSAS) that enhances the understanding of immediate surroundings and distant areas of interest for personnel operating armored vehicles.
“The integration of Vegvisir with the Patria AMV 8×8 vehicle in the field test follows previous tests conducted with the Estonian Defense Forces, which involved the armored personnel carriers Patria XA-188 6×6, Patria XA-180 6×6, and the infantry fighting vehicle CV-9035. This demonstrates our platform agnostic approach, allowing the situational awareness system to be installed on various platforms. In total, we have completed integrations with four different armored vehicles,” stated Vegvisir on its website.
According to the manufacturer’s description, when combined with Head/Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) goggles, these systems provide the driver of the vehicle with situational awareness, including a “360-degree view through the vehicle,” as well as real-time information about the vehicle’s position and the locations of friendly and enemy forces.
