The project has been in development since 2017 by the research and development group of the Department of Basic Sciences, and is geared at developing national technologies to enhance pilot situational awareness. The prototype HMD is fitted to an HGU-55P that is the standard type worn by pilots of the Argentine Air Force (FAA).

As told to Janes , the objectives set for this prototype were to achieve a technological demonstrator capable of superimposing a virtual image that appears to be located more than 4 m away from the user.
