In addition to guns, ammunition, ruck sacs and more, the modern US soldier must now carry electronics– from night vision to radios, and now programs such as Nett Warrior add smartphones, tablets, and GPS to this load. And just like the bullets for a soldier’s gun, a soldier’s electronics need ammo in the form of batteries–and they all need to be able to communicate with themselves to share intelligence both on the field and with central command.
But with the new intelligence, soldiers must endure extraordinary weight demands to carry all these devices on their person when dismounted. The extra weight and growing amount of the equipment increases the need for miniaturization and the integration of smart energy management with networking solutions in order be more effective on the battlefield.
