US Army Wants Smart Optics for Infantry Squads, Sources Say


LAS VEGAS -- The U.S. Army is considering buying smart optics for infantry squads, sources said.

The technology would allow a squad leader to put a digital tag on a target, and the rest of the squad would be able to see the tag when they looked through their optics, the source said.
