Abstract : Problem Statement: Soldiers in Small Units (squads/fire teams/crews) are physically overburdened, often carrying up to 130lbs; this degrades performance and may result in immediate, as well as, long term consequences. Near term (FY17): Reduce physical burden of Soldier and Small Unit, including the grenadier, SAW gunner and attached combat medic, so that load reduction of the carried weight equates to a percentage not exceeding 50% of individual s body weight across the central 90% of the male Soldier population.
