Abstract

Augmented reality systems hold great promise, but as they become more complex they can become more challenging to use. Incorporating neural interfaces into augmented reality systems can dramatically increase usability and utility. We explore these issues in the context of Equinox Corporation’s Night REAPERTM system-an augmented reality system for dismounted warfighters. We describe the current Night REAPER system and then survey some of the potential enhancements and unique design challenges associated with the addition of a neural interface. Signals, sensors, and decoding techniques for the system’s brain-machine interface are discussed.
