Ukraine is set to deploy the Vegvisir Core system to enhance the situational awareness of combat vehicles. The defense company Vegvisir announced on its LinkedIn account the first agreement to supply its Vegvisir Core system. In collaboration with Defsecintel, the system will be utilized to improve the situational awareness of vehicle crews in Ukraine.

Vegvisir Core is a technology that enables users to observe, navigate, make decisions, and act faster in battle and critical situations. According to the manufacturer, this system allows armored vehicle crews to “see through walls.” It employs cameras, sensors, and image processing algorithms to provide a 360-degree MR/VR image to the crew with a display on the military helmet.

Defensphere, in its statement, said the system enables crews inside armored vehicles to see not only their immediate surroundings but also enemy positions in real-time up to 10 km away. Key features of Vegvisir Core include a modular configuration for 95% of potential user tasks, four levels of backup sensors, and robust helmet displays with VR interface options. The system boasts a 360-degree commander’s sight with a range of up to 10 km and night driving optics for low light conditions, alongside multispectral probing.

Developed in accordance with NATO military standards, Vegvisir is also integrated with other battlefield platforms, including unmanned ground vehicles. The system has already received NATO STANAG accreditation.

Defensphere, established in 2021, plans a second round of funding in 2022 to expand its engineering and sales team. In addition to Vegvisir Core, the company offers another product, Vegvisir Remote, an advanced situational awareness system optimized for remote use with low bandwidth, primarily for piloted or unmanned platforms requiring remote control.
