On 11 April, the U.S. Army announced a $21.9 billion contract with Microsoft to produce custom augmented-reality headsets, claiming it will give troops an advantage on the battlefield. 
The army called Microsoft an “industry leader in developing innovative technology,” and the Wall Street Journal reported the new goggles will be similar to their 2018 HoloLens headset. The Seattle-based company provided the U.S. Army with 100,000 headsets of an earlier model.
The paper reported the new model will feature night-vision capabilities that will allow soldiers to measure exact distances. Washington Technology reported the contract will span over ten years, and the software giant is to produce about 120,000 of the headsets.
The Integrated Visual Augmentation Program, known as IVAS, will run on the company’s Azure cloud infrastructure and will aggregate “multiple technologies into an architecture that allows the soldier to fight, rehearse, and train using a single platform,” the Army said in a statement.
TRENDPOST: We note this to further illustrate the power of the military/industrial/intelligence complex of stealing countless trillions of dollars of taxpayer money for use on weaponry, products, and spying resources that enrich the few… and will be a waste of money, as these headsets will prove, to deliver what was promised. 
On 17 January 1961, three days before leaving office, Dwight D. Eisenhower, two-term president, Five Star general, and Supreme Commander of the Allied forces during World War II warned the American people in his farewell address that the military-industrial complex was robbing the nation of the genius of the scientists, sweat of the labors, and future of the children. 
Yet, his words and warnings, which have come to pass and continue, were ignored and have long been forgotten. 
Among the results is an America in sharp decline. As Gerald Celente has forecast, the 20th century was the American century but the 21st will be the Chinese century.
Why? Because the business of America has been war while the business of China has been business. 
It should be noted that the U.S. has not won a war since World War II… and, indeed, the $22 billion Microsoft headsets will be useless in current and future wars.
