KEY POINTS
  • Microsoft will deliver to the U.S. Army more than 120,000 devices based on its HoloLens augmented reality headset.
  • The deal, which could be worth as much as $21.88 billion over 10 years, follows a contract Microsoft received to build prototype headsets for the Army.
  • The contract comes a year and a half after Microsoft won a cloud contract from the Pentagon that could be worth up to $10 billion.

The deal shows Microsoft can generate meaningful revenue from a futuristic product resulting from years of research, beyond core areas such as operating systems and productivity software.
