Entry Description

The Fusion Vision System (FVS) is an augmented reality visor to let firefighters see the unseen.

Through thermal imaging, environmental analysis, and remote image sharing with command vehicles, the FVS has the potential to offer unprecedented real-time data for firefighters. When you can see through smoke, you can more quickly identify hotspots, locate victims, and detect fire sources — equipping these first responders with a superpower that they haven’t had in 2000 years of organized firefighting.

It’s like giving a firefighter the vision of Iron Man.
