Talked with a buddy near (not in) the R & D branch and they are already working this issue using the new LCD tech out. The biggest problem is displaying information that justifies the loss of visibility caused by the information displayed. One test involved having a map, target info, pictures of target, text and unit status all at the same time. Hence the guy walking with his hands out.
One of the other messages suggested using a basic "alive or dead" system for unit status would be good.
