Abstract : Real-time physiological status monitors (RT-PSM) are an important new category of military wearables in the individual Soldier's technological ecosystem. RT-PSM addresses a gap by providing individual Soldiers and small unit leaders with actionable information needed to ensure individual and squad performance readiness. This summary of accomplishments, requirements and research road-maps identifies what RT-PSM is and is not, how current capabilities can be used in current programs of record, and where future research should focus. Notable accomplishments include the development of a commercial criterion, FDA-certified wearable research tool, useful in acquiring data from Soldiers and Marines in training and operational environments performing their normal activities under stressful conditions. This has advanced development of algorithms and concepts of operation for various applications. Current implementation of RT-PSM for thermal-work strain monitoring includes technology transitions through the National Guard Bureau and the Program Executive Office Soldier Integrated Soldier Sensor System program.
