Think Smart
Smart eyewear is an exciting and relatively new technology that is currently being adopted by many industries who are looking for ways to make greater efficiencies in the workplace, reduce the risk of injury and save on operating costs.

Psion develop bespoke software solutions that are tailored to your business requirements. This offers many advantages over an off-the-shelf application, as it allows us to do many more things such as, connecting the eyewear to your existing software systems, setting up security controls and adding specific features. Our unique UI design also means that our software applications are easier to use than your average phone app, which means little or no training and better take up amongst staff.

Marine Industry
Realwear Smart Eyewear for military

Psion use the market leading Navigator 520 headsets which have been designed for personnel who operate in challenging or remote environments (wet, hot, cold, dusty and noisy). Our smart eyewear solution is designed to work with standard hard hats, bump caps and safety glasses. The eyewear features a high-resolution micro display that fits just below your line of sight and views like a 7” tablet. Operation is hands free, using only voice control or head movements. This means no scrolling, swiping, or tapping - just simple voice commands.

Battery life is typically 7-8 hours and field swappable for continuous use. The high-resolution modular camera can be further enhanced with a FLIR thermal capability.

Our R&D projects have been supported by the UK Space Agency, Oxford Innovation and their partners (Airbus, Ordnance Survey and Southampton University).

Military Specialists

Military personnel can benefit from smart eyewear in various ways.

Psion are the market leaders in the development of smart eyewear software for the military using the market leading Navigator 520 smart eyewear.

We are currently fielding solutions for the British Army and 26 Navies around the world. Our software applications provide enhanced situational awareness, hands free communications and access to relevant information and data. Our applications also enable service personnel to record and share media footage for evidence, reconnaissance and intelligence gathering. Both the hardware and software use a modular design to enable future concept of operations. such as night vision and augmented reality displays.

Psion Vision have teamed up with the market leaders in navy navigation OSI Maritime to develop NOMAD (Naval Operations Mobile Augmented Display). NOMAD can be deployed on surface, sub-surface and soft boats and has two primary applications NOMAD Support (for engineering and logistics) and NOMAD bridge (for command and control). Together they enable ships crew to remotely access information systems and personnel across the platform.

About Psion

Psion has its roots in the defence sector

We specialise in maintenance planning and structural integrity management, developing innovative support solutions for the UK Ministry of Defence. In 2015 the British army adopted our maintenance support philosophy for managing their major warfighting equipment's.

We also developed the world first science based structural integrity management software solution for armoured fighting vehicles, which was designed to replace the long standing and outdated scheduled based maintenance approach with one based on risk and condition. The project which ran for 8 years and was supported by DSTL is capable of determining the structural condition of the asset, it’s maintenance requirements and survivability in battle. In 2015 the Ministry of Defence successfully used the software to determine the condition of 63 Challenger 2 main battle tanks as part of the governments Strategic Defence Review.

We moved into the smart eyewear market back in early 2018 when we were sponsored by the UK space agency to develop the technology for the defence market.

Our focus on smart eyewear solutions has enabled us to work with clients across a number of sectors including maritime and aviation industry.
