The Connected Soldier

Those of us without a direct connection to the military do not regularly stop and consider that much of the technology that impacts our daily lives has its genesis in the military. 

Today's soldier is a walking network of systems, connectors, sensors and communications capabilities that define the concept of the internet of things

A well connected, well informed, lighter loaded soldier of the future means the internet will be part of a soldier’s uniform, as well as weapons and other equipment. With everything active online, troops will be able to generate a complete picture of the battlefield down to the level of the individual soldier. 

Advances in soldier technology touch everything needed to protect ground troops - think power solutions, vision technologies, communications protocols, encryption, miniaturization, high bandwidth. And all of this is networked into the intelligent fabric of the soldiers uniform. Wearables, anyone? 

The greater Boston community is fortunate in that many of these technologies are developed and integrated here as part of the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Systems Center and the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center. The community also has many strong defense contractors that develop technologies to improve the effectiveness of our freedom defenders. 

Join us for an evening of demonstrations and presentations while we explore the one of the most sophisticated networked systems of our time: The Connected Soldier.
