'Wrist Video' Gives Israeli Army an Edge

by Mark5019 / March 4, 2005 11:43 PM PST

HOLON, Israel - Israeli troops are now sporting gear that **** Tracy would be proud of: tiny video screens, worn on the wrist, which display video shot by unmanned airplanes.


Similar screens have been in use for close to a year in the Israeli military's attack helicopters, helping pilots identify and strike Palestinian militants within seconds.


The technology, which is also in use in tanks and armored vehicles, was a closely guarded secret until the company that developed it offered reporters a rare glimpse at the system this week.


"We are fulfilling the science fiction movies that we see," said Itzhak Beni, chief executive of the Elisra Group's Tadiran Electronic Systems and Tadiran Spectralink companies.


Beni said the communications system has "shortened tremendously"


and thats just what we see
