The IVAS helmet is based on the Microsoft HoloLens 2.

Congress rejected the US Army’s request for funding to purchase more combat goggles from Microsoft, according to a report from Bloomberg. 

The report says the Army requested $400 million to buy about 6,900 goggles which are adapted from Microsoft’s HoloLens Headset. Congress rejected the request because of concerns that the headsets caused “mission-affecting physical impairments,” like headaches and nausea.

Neither Microsoft nor the US Army immediately responded to a request for comment.
