So as not to run away? Tracking bracelets put on American soldiers


The U.S. Army signed a $ 16,5 million contract with Robotic Research LLC, under which it should supply tracking bracelets for soldiers.


Allegedly, this equipment is designed to inform fighters about each other's whereabouts in places where it is impossible to use GPS-communication or there is a bad signal. This device is called WarLoc - localization sensor fighter team. The first contract provides for equipping four brigade combat groups in places of various locations. The first batch, according to the company, has already been shipped.

It is assumed that a WarLoc, worn on a boot, will provide data transfer in locations with difficult GPS communications, for example, in underground structures and indoors.

Imagine that soldiers go inside a very large building and get lost or disperse in an underground facility, while someone else jambs the GPS

explains Alberto Lacase, president of Robotic Research.

Moreover, it is alleged that the enemy is not able to detect this device.

The network has already managed to express their opinion on this matter. As a number of users suggest, in fact, WarLoc is an analogue of tracking bracelets worn by prisoners or people under house arrest: this device will not allow soldiers to escape from the battlefield.

      This bracelet must be around the neck with explosives. Like in the movie "running man". Ran away from the battlefield or did not obey orders and boom ... but in general it will be easier for the enemy to find them using the outgoing signal.

        Such lotions against popouces do. The Americans will not fight with a technologically advanced adversary. Because almost all of them are US allies.

          Technologically advanced opponents, the United States has only two. Russia and China. This is one of those who can generally be called an adversary. The rest are just enemies. And all the manufacturability, justifies itself, exclusively in the remote nature of the war with the "Papuans." (bombing, missile strikes, exporting revolutions, etc.), or in extreme cases, in a total nuclear war. When it comes down to ground operations, then technological effectiveness fades into the background, and the main thing is the training and morale of the soldiers. There Saudis, with all their almost the most modern army in the world, can not do anything with barefoot Hussites. This is so, for example.

            allegedly the adversary is unable to detect this device

            Approved by whom? And on what grounds does mom swear?
            soldier
            But actually, electronics is constantly evolving.
            So military development is inevitable. Automatic drawing of a map of the area. The designation on this map of their own and others, not only those whom you see yourself, but also those whom others see, as well as drones. Communication encryption. Reporting injured and killed. All this is needed in the army. And it will inevitably be.

            They can do nothing with the partisans, which is logical. And now imagine that there was a total war, where atomic bombs fall and everyone doesn’t care about the Saudis, then they go to the village, cut it to 0 and go on. In this scenario, the Hussites would no longer be there. Training and morale are nothing when you ride tanks of the 60s of the last century, and you are watered from drones while drinking coffee.

                    How much irony ... A few years ago there was information about the creation by the Americans of an inertial navigation chip on microaccelerometers, placed in the heel, in order to use GPS only to correct the oncoming error. I think this whole continuation of the story, in this case, I suppose, is connected with the automation of the search and evacuation of seriously wounded on the battlefield. Eh guys ... I have no doubt that tomorrow the FPI fund will cut this topic down. Prankishness is simply out of place.

            The commander has the opportunity to track the actions, the whereabouts of each soldier, we also have such a system in Ratnik.
            Well, the conclusions in the article, each has its own level of development.

    But if you get into such a network ...
    Surely there will be such attempts and successful penetrations.
    And all the enemies - like in the palm of your hand!
    But what is VHF communication, I know firsthand. It is only in the cinema that it is continuous even in the dungeons. In reality, he went into the house - and that’s it!
    Well, VERY she is unstable. Within the power range up to 5 watts.
    And all sorts of Highcoms are precisely of such capacity and are limited.

    What are they really stupid. If you give a transmission, you have given a signal. To intercept and decrypt to me, to protection - did not stick anywhere. I'm fucked what you ALREADY said, Chopin will play next

    If this crap emits a signal, and even quite complex, transmitting a name with a code (number or any something that identifies a soldier), then there are no obstacles to the reception of this signal by the enemy. Very good help in finding and destroying. Well, and as a means to destroy the deserter is suitable.

      Hhhhh belay If the Ministry of Education cuts this chip, then it will force all pupils and students to wear bracelets. repeat And if they don’t put on the bracelets, then the Ministry of Education will remove all responsibility for the safety of children and the quality of their education. request

      Yes, but the Americans, by the simplicity of their souls, which they acquired in the 90s (when they did not have an equal opponent), still consider all to be round IDs.

        Watching who you’re fighting. If with barefoot rebels, then yes, probably this gadget is useful. If with an advanced opponent, then you are right, an extra unmasking factor. Although there are already so many electronic Pribluds on the modern soldier who "sound" in different ranges, that another role does not play.

    Now in the USA it will become easier to issue a salary hi no fighter, no sn, And on the other hand, the sensor can track where the soldier is, dead or alive, two fighters in the same bed or not drinks
    And since the question arose of tracking, is that? Do they have massive desertion or track the foolishness past Uncle Sema’s ticket office?
