626

Soldier Vision is also developing advanced information systems that could be integrated into Future Force warrior programs. The systems are designed specifically for the mounted, dismounted infantry as well as and tank crews. The software packages provide enhanced situational awareness, combat identification and discrimination between friend and foe, assists routing and navigation around combat obstacles and improves coordination and target hand-off with fire support teams. The system uses Soldier Vision’s developed battlefield management framework (BMF) and sensor grid facilities. Recent applications of the system were demonstrated on COTS based computers, using Intel XScale 500 Mhz processor running the Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system.
