"Agile acquisition has been a big emphasis area during my time as CNO. We’ve stood up this accelerated acquisition program, and there are really two elements to that: One, if there is a problem out there for which we don’t have a solution, let’s get rapid prototyping going and get to a solution fast. And then for those things where we have a solution, either through rapid prototyping or off the shelf, what can we do to get that in production and in the fleet as fast as we can?" -- Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson

Dennis Gallagher, from the Underwater Systems Development Group at NSWC Panama City Division describe the Divers Augmented Vision Display (DAVD), a prototype which features a see-through head-up display capability inside a U.S. Navy diving helmet. The prototype uses a waveguide optical display technology to provide high resolution color data and imagery to the diver. The diver can clearly view sonar, video, text messages, photos, schematics, and augmented reality overlays during training and actual dive missions. #SAS2018 #OneNAVSEA
