Abstract:

The scope of the current study effort is directed at an analysis of the Soldier Data Tag System concept during both wartime and peacetime scenarios. The current study is directed primarily at Army personnel systems, medical systems, and financial systems. However, it is likely that the SDT system will have wider applications. For example, in an earlier study conducted for DoD in the logistics area, Battelle identified many feasible, cost-effective applications for portable data carriers. These included inventory tags, maintenance and repair records, and manifest lists. Data acquisition and analysis for the project was limited to that available on the SDT system concept demonstrations and emerging DoD automation systems. The benefits from the SDT would be expected to lie in the areas of improved readiness in peacetime, redundancy and backup of data for the on-line automation systems, overall improvement to the speed and accuracy of routine data entries, ability to provide a transfer data recordTDR which replaces the error-prone paper system, and improved information processing on the battlefield. Keywords Micro-Chip, Data Record, and Interface.
