Towards Developing a Cost-effective Advanced Battlefield Command System in Reaching the Future Soldier Systems
The structure and thoughts of ‘Future Soldier Systems’ is rapidly changing with the evolvement of new technologies. Military budget is increasing every year with the advancement of technologies. To equip the military forces, almost every country spends a lion share of her national budget. In this project, we tried to design and develop a prototype of ‘Future Soldier Systems’ focusing on battle command system by incorporating an indigenous advanced combat helmet, which will be used by the frontline troops. The proposed system will use both the data and satellite connectivity. An android based mobile application is developed as part of the proposed system that will help soldiers to get the necessary information about first aid kit, field manuals, weather forecast, translation navigation services. Special consideration is emphasized on power management to make the system more sustainable in any rough terrain. Using the proposed system, commander in different tiers will be able to visualize the actual picture of the battle field through live streaming, which in turn will help them in the process of decision making about battle field. Cost effectiveness is considered in all aspects of the proposed system. The proposed system may be a good option for the soldiers of developing countries.
