Abstract:

The NATOs Sensors and Electronics Technology Task Group on Energy Generation for ManwearableManportable Applications and Remote Sensors SET-206 conducted an assessment of the power and data distribution and system architecture of dismounted soldier systems, both currently in use and planned for the future. The dismounted soldier system assessment is based on the information gathered via a questionnaire and publicly available documents. The dismounted soldier system as discussed in this document is defined as the combination of items that support the assigned mission, which is what the soldier either wears on his body and head, what he carries in his rucksack and what has been fitted to his weapon system. Most NATO countries have DSS modernization programmes running or at least have plans. Although different design choices are being made for the dismounted soldier systems, there are several general trends in the DSS development. This report describes the most important trends and trade-offs for the next-generation integrated soldier system solutions.
