The proof of concept research explores the potential for integrating the following four 'personal devices's () baseline IFF personal device () data applique interface to field processors () audio applique interface to voice headset or audio monitor () video applique interface to camera and display into a single, wearable non-line of sight spread spectrum IFF, tracking and duplex multimedia communication 'personal device'. A potentially large number of wearable 'personal devices' can be networked by one or more portable base station units (that will also be demonstrated). Anticipated Benefits: Successful SBIR research will open the way for a small, very low cost wearable spread spectrum 'personal device' that can be employed in defense-critical situation awareness/IFF and covert multimedia field communications. Commercial applications to entertainment and recreational markets are extensive.
