Microsoft Corp.’s multibillion-dollar deal to build customized versions of its HoloLens goggles for the U.S. Army is moving forward, one year after the Senate considered freezing half the contract.

The deal, initially unveiled three years ago, is now worth as much as $21.9 billion over 10 years, according to Microsoft.
