The military environment is changing, e.g., the operating environment is becoming more varied and demanding. Due to these challenges, new user interfaces (UIs) are required providing improved soldier protection and performance both in day-time and night-time conditions. The new UIs should, e.g., improve the soldier's situation awareness, i.e., perception of information, integration of pieces of information, determination of their relevance to one's goals, and projection of their status in the future.
