Abstract:

The goal of this project is to eliminate the current base modules and replace them with a distributed modular tactical packaging system. This system will allow for greater flexibility, reduced encumbrance and an easier to use electronics package which will allow both man-mounted and hand-held operation. By designing a wearable unit that is easily reconfigurable, soldiers will have "plug and play" flexibility, where they can choose electronics modules prior to each mission and easily outfit themselves in minutes. This system will provide waterproof operation via easy to use connectors which do not require the use of any tools to connect or disconnect them. The final deliverable at the end of Phase II will be a complete wearable electronics unit and a number of different packaged modules such as receivers, high-speed scanners, PC/104+ computer cards, power supplies, a CompactFlash adapter, and Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Ethernet hubs. For Phase I we will complete the preliminary design of this system and deliver prototypes of both the modular package and the wearable electronics unit.
