Abstract : with the rapid advancement of technology and the resulting enhancements in soldier capabilities, the Army has recognized the need to view, develop and field future individual soldiers as integrated combat systems. As a new concept, no database detailing annual costs for the present Soldier System exists. This effort develops the framework or methodology to determine current and future Soldier System costs, and develops the baseline annual costs for the current Soldier System. Current Soldier System costs are based on the individual infantryman of a Rifle Squad in an Infantry Company (Light) (TOE 07-017L000). Total estimated annual cost for the current Soldier System is $138.3K per year. The expenses of current soldier's clothing and equipment at $1.6K per year represents only slightly more than 1% of the total annual Soldier System costs.
