ABSTRACT: We have designed a system we call the Human Terminal System - a wrist-or-chest wearable system to provide organic battlespace visualization capability to pilots and other warfighters. The system is a powerful, miniaturized, man-wearable, multi-processor PC running Windows and Android in support of both legacy PC and smartphone software. It supports numerous displays from 3.5 to 7 inch, including HMDs, has a multimodal user interface encompassing touch screen, track pad, touchpad, track stick, keyboard and voice command; power management, energy conservation, and distributed fault protection. It supports over 250 sensor ports, (for skin-in/skin-out sensors) via an open architecture including 6 USB2.0, 2 Ethernet, 1 RS232, 1 RS 170, microphone and speaker ports. Now at Generation 9, the system demonstrates compatibility with existing SOF software, ease of ease, ruggedization, and SWEPPI evolution. We will reach Generation 14 in Phase II, fabricate several systems, deploy with early stage DOD and security customers, and continue field technology exercises with operators to assess speed, usability, and accessibility over existing systems. The system is designed for situational awareness, surveillance, and flight operations, for pilots and crew, (including pilots of soldier launched UAVs) and in particular for SOF, TACP, and PJ personnel. BENEFIT: The system is a Situational Awareness Force Multiplier. It provides Rapidly Selectable Wide-area and individual views on a wrist or chest display. Track and see what aerial, dismounted troops and vehicle cameras see. Provides a common operating picture of team member (blue force) location and available individual fields of view. Provides rapid access to any available field of view, and to sensor data (physio and logistical) from warfighters. Open Platform for support of legacy PC systems, operates on the move, hands free. The system is not"handheld", but is designed for hands-and-eyes-busy personnel. Multimodal touch and voice command, secure video, sound, and sensor data collection and distribution. Broad commercial applications beyond the Military: Police. Border Patrol. Medical. Search and Rescue. Emergency Response. Homeland Security. Fire. Enterprise mobile data collection and data entry, aircraft maintenance, equipment repair any collaborative teamwork that requires visual and audio presence sharing on demand.
