The U.S. Department of Defense, has decided to equip its service members with a high-tech visual device that will enable them to see the minutest details within a range of one kilometer. Darpa (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is currently soliciting proposals for the development of a new visual enhancement system called Scenicc (Soldier Centric Imaging via Computational Cameras), which will give soldiers in the field a 360-degree, 3D field of view, through the use of multiple cameras with real-time zoom capabilities that will enlarge objects 10 times over. The device will enable the wearer to distinguish a wooden stick from an AK-47 type assault rifle, and observe all hidden dangers in the field. The new system, which should be in the hand of U.S. military members within a few years' time, must weigh no more than 700 grams, and its batteries must guarantee over 24 hours of use.
