HoloLens for the US military is not dead, thanks to the “next phase” approval.

What you need to know

  • The US military has approved the next stage of development for version 1.2 of Microsoft’s HoloLens militarized headset known as IVAS.
  • The entry assessment was carried out by Soldiers from 1st Battalion, Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division.
  • The development team is currently exploring ways to make more headphones while maintaining the affordability and quality of the headphones.
  • Cloud computing capabilities will be available over the next year.
  • If all goes according to plan, the production phase will probably start in 2025.

Things have been especially quiet for Microsoft’s HoloLens mixed reality line, leaving it to speculation whether the company will continue its AR hardware efforts or ditch them entirely. Several reports surfaced online last year that the company had jumped ship, citing that Microsoft had canceled the HoloLens 3.

Earlier this year, the US military said it wouldn’t invest in the technology if the company didn’t ship an updated version of the military-grade headset with sophisticated features. And the fact that Microsoft’s massive layouts impacted the HoloLens division didn’t improve the situation.
