BAE Systems has just announced the first Augmented Reality (AR) headset for troops in the field. It's like Google Glass but with lots more information. And cooler looking too.
Called Q-Warrior, it is currently being tested before troops get to wear them. It focuses more on function and durability and it is a single see-through display and can be mounted securely onto existing military helmets.

BAE Systems states that the Q-Warrior is both lightweight and low-cost. Something we've seen before in Tony Stark's Iron Man suits?
