The Visual Intelligence System, Reconnaissance, often referred to simply as VISR, is a piece of equipment utilized by the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. The term generally applies to a series of similar operating systems rather than a single product.

Background

Note: the following is an excerpt from this page and details the M51 system.

The VISR can link into a multitude of infrastructure systems at the local, national, and global levels, administered on a need/rating basis, allowing the user to store and review up to 610MB of audio files, as well as street navigational data, receive real-time mission data, and other important functions. It also includes low-light vision enhancement systems, raising the brightness of the surrounding area on the users Heads-Up-Display and highlighting personnel or equipment of interest - "friendly" combatants are highlighted in green, "enemy" combatants are highlighted in red, usable equipment and weaponry are highlighted in blue, while other points of interest are highlighted in yellow.

VISR-24

Developed in mid-2624, the VISR-24 operating system was a great improvement over the aging VISR-51. Rather than storing only 610 megabytes of data, the new model could efficiently hold up to three gigabytes of data, including:

  • Audio files
  • Street navigational data
  • Real-time satellite imagery
  • Information on the status of nearby allies within ten kilometer radius
  • Friend-or-foe designator w/ neutral and civilian designators
  • Up-to-date query and briefing logs
Note: one or more of these applications may require external support, i.e. tactical satellites, previous charts, etc.


Combined with the cunning of the M94 Body Suit, the Visual Intelligence System, Reconnaissance-24 gave orbital-drop shock troopers and other special forces operators the ability to outperform to a greater extent than in previous situations; this upper edge was further supported by the fact that the VISR-24 was just as affordable as previous models,yet much more cost-effective. The VISR-24's reign would last until it was replaced by an even more capable model in 2689. It is also worth noting that a down-scaled version of the VISR-24 was in use with Marines and |Army infantrymen between 2655 and 2722.
