One of the most exciting developments in military technology is the application of virtual and augmented reality. Beginning with the use of flight simulators for training, the application of these technologies has advanced to the use of augmented reality headsets to superimpose topographical information from remote drones on soldiers' view of the battlefield. This book explains the nature of augmented and virtual reality, a history of their uses in the military, a discussion of current uses, and a look at the technology's possible applications in the future. It also provides advice for students who are interested in pursuing a career in this field on how to best develop useful skillsets.
