The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

6 Aug. 2019 -- The Carmel concept has already been briefed to the U.S Army. Development of the system has reached a stage where the components have been developed and are being integrated on the combat vehicles.

The program is not meant to produce a new vehicle, but focuses on autonomous and automatic maneuvering, artificial intelligence (AI) and more. Carmel was launched three years ago as a multi-year program to upgrade the IDF’s combat vehicles, producing an agile, effective, innovative, compact, easy-to-maneuver vehicle at relatively low cost.

Elbit Systems developed the Iron Vision see-through helmet-mounted display, based on the technology the company developed for the F-35 fighter jet. The concept includes autonomous capabilities and artificial intelligence for decision making and targeting with increased speed and accuracy.
