The US military is experiencing a "smart" jacket

40
In 2002, the US Army, together with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, founded a research institute whose main task was to develop nanotechnologies that could be used for the needs of the armed forces. This institute was named ISN - Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies. The institute was established with funds from the American Army. In March 2002, the Pentagon allocated 50 million dollars for these purposes. The main activity of the institute is the creation of various kinds of nanomaterials that would help the soldier to survive on the battlefield.

It is noteworthy that during the opening of ISN, the right to cut the traditional festive ribbon was granted to the American ordinary Jason Ashline, who is a living witness of new technologies on the battlefield (in every sense). In carrying out the combat mission in Afghanistan, in 2001, in a private Jason, an entire AK-47 magazine was discharged, by happy accident and thanks to a modern body armor of ceramic plates, the private soldier retained the most valuable thing - life.

Currently, research conducted by the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies is focused on protecting soldiers and officers from the effects of small weapons, explosions, biological or chemical exposure, increasing the combat performance of infantrymen, medical aid and automated control of the physiological state, reducing the weight of the combat display. The institute is working to create a bactericidal and waterproof fabric with a special nano-coating, a liquid that hardens in a magnetic field (for body armor), as well as polymers that could contract in a magnetic field and would be able to perform the role of a medical harness or artificial muscles.

It is worth noting that the discovery of the ISN was quite an important step towards the cooperation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the army. Now this cooperation has moved into a fairly new and interesting area - nanotechnology, but MIT has previously collaborated with the US military. During World War II, institute specialists created one of the world's first radars. And already during the “cold war” MIT distinguished himself in the creation of an inertial guidance system for missiles.
The US military is experiencing a "smart" jacket

Smart Jacket

One of the latest developments of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has become a field uniform for the military, which is permeated with special gold micronits. With their help, researchers are going to demonstrate to the army that a new uniform can be literally “crammed” with structures that are similar to optical fiber and at the same time can themselves register heat, sound and light. And do it yourself, since these fibers lead directly to transistors, microchips and processors.

According to the head of the Institute of Military Nanotechnology (ISN) John Joannopoulos, these fibers themselves are devices. At present, it is still experimental, rather than a military uniform ready for field use. Now the fibers in it have about a millimeter diameter, but the developers hope to reduce them 10 times, that is, to bring their thickness to 100 microns.

One of the main tasks of these fibers will be to ensure the identification of "friend or foe" on the battlefield. During the conduct of urban battles, as well as at night or in smoke, this task is not so easily solved. At present, the army decides on its use of dense group orders, but what is suitable for dealing with an enemy who is poorly trained in tactical and firing attitudes can become a serious obstacle when meeting with a well-trained tactically and accurately shooting enemy.

The scheme proposed by American developers uses a small laser that is planned to be installed on a soldier’s helmet. When a fighter is irradiated by someone else's form equipped with microfiber sensors, this laser will force them to send a response signal to the fighter. A similar algorithm is planned to be used for speech recognition of soldiers. Thus, in particular, earlier, American soldiers often asked questions about the name of Mickey Mouse’s wife, in order to recognize their own, but given the current globalization, such questions-responses only become partially effective.

The same fibers that are able to recognize heat are intended to be used to determine the location of injuries, as well as their degree of severity. An intelligent jacket can automatically inform medical workers about the need to evacuate a wounded person or to immediately treat him. Used in the form of a wonderful fiber based on a combination of a number of materials that allow you to create an independent microdevice. For example, in order to successfully determine the heat, a special semiconductor material is inserted into the fiber, which dramatically changes its conductivity when heated to a certain temperature.

When creating "smart" fibers, an already tested and developed technology for the production of optical fiber is used, which provides for the execution of the shell and core of various kinds of materials. Currently, the thickness of such fibers is larger than that of a standard fiber optic cable (there are samples with a thickness of 125 µm), since the layers of conductive materials of dielectrics and semiconductors require more space than a conventional sheath and core. In this case, the developers believe that this is only a temporary limitation and over time they will be able to achieve the required thickness of the fibers.

Currently, the "smart" jacket does not have outstanding performance. The communication distance between the fibers is very small. In the manufactured experimental devices it was not possible to achieve a stable connection at a distance of more than 75 meters. In the same case, if there is an obstacle between the soldiers, the process of communication between their uniforms becomes worse.

English smart form design

Nowadays, the equipment of a modern soldier in many armies of the world includes more and more electronic devices, which significantly increase the combat capabilities of fighters. For a number of military units, the use of powerful communication and communication systems, night vision devices, satellite navigation and other similar devices has become familiar. At the same time, numerous batteries and wires create inconveniences for the soldier on the battlefield. However, all these elements may soon become a thing of the past if they can be replaced with a uniform with a special conductive fiber.

Back in 2009, engineers at Intelligent Textiles began to argue that all sorts of sensors and devices reduce the mobility of infantrymen and, together with batteries and wires, form an additional burden on the soldiers. A new military uniform with a conductive fiber integrated into it is designed to save soldiers from this problem. Developed by British engineers, the prototype of the form has its own power source and is a kind of local network to which one or other devices can be connected without any problems. If at present a separate power supply is required to power each device, then it will be possible to connect as many different devices as possible to a single battery through the fabric of a new form.

The conductive fiber, which is woven directly into the fabric itself, aims to reduce not only the physical but also the mental load on the soldiers and officers. Early cable damage often led to the impossibility of using one device or another before the operation was completed, and now the concept of signal redirection along alternative routes has been implemented in a new form. Ashi Thompson, the head of Intelligent Textiles, told reporters that the problem with conventional cable used to be that his gap often became a real disaster. Anticipating this, we tried to build in the form of conductive fiber in excess, in the event that the fabric is torn or damaged, the signal can always be redirected.

In this case, the conductive fiber in a state conducts not only electric current, but also to transmit various data. In the end, this form can be transformed into a “worn-in computer”. Currently, engineers at Intelligent Textiles are working to create a special flexible keyboard on fabric. Tests of the prototype of this form was planned to be completed in May 2012 of the year, so that by the end of the year it could be sent into service with the soldiers of the Royal Air Force (RAF). By the 2014-2015, the UK planned to give this form a massive distribution.

    That's interesting, but will such electronic filling withstand this everyday wear in combat conditions? Otherwise, it will turn out like in a joke:

    They gave the private a new "smart" uniform. Of course, she could not stand the daily marches on the obstacle course. A private beckons the foreman: "Comrade foreman, look - the shirt is all dirty, the tunic is torn, one leg is longer than the other, the cap is all crooked. Yes, it's scary to look at this uniform!"
    Petty Officer: "That's right, a warrior must inspire fear!" laughing

    In my opinion, one of the main types of weapons is the soldier’s head and ingenuity, not a uniform. These are the words of Suvorov. Shoot rarely, but accurately, with a bayonet if firmly. A bullet is a fool, a bayonet is well done.
    Who is brave is alive. Who dares - that is whole.
    Those who are scared are half beaten. Well, how can "smart form" help here?

      Have you heard about the word progress? Before World War II, the generals reasoned the same way. They thought that they didn’t need automatic machines, but there were three lines! Tanks are also not needed, like artillery. Only when our army began to bend, did these primitives finally realize that modern weapons could not be dispensed with and went into the army of Katyusha, KV and T-34. Russian history does not teach anything!

              You know, the main conclusion that was made after Tsushima: the time only for courage has passed, the time has come for technological progress. In good hands, a good technique will win. It is difficult to courage to defeat the ship, which a few miles from the brave ones bombards them with shells. At the time of Suvorov, they fought with bayonets more than bullets (I literally remember his words) simply because the military equipment of those years was so developed. As for clothes, socks and weapons, it is unlikely that so much attention would have been paid both to us and their uniforms and equipment, if it did not carry a part of the key to success of a fighter

        Of course, I won’t reveal the picture of the universe to you in a nutshell, but on the whole you wrote nonsense. The reasons for the defeat of the 41st are not the novelty or obsolescence of the weapon.
        Smoke the story thoughtfully.
        You will not believe about three-lines, but the best and most massive self-loading SVT at that time is the three-line !!! But the war showed that a mass popular army is better than a simple Mosinka, "Svetka" was disliked for its capriciousness.
        But she liked the technically competent marines, and for them they gradually let out the whole war.

          Smoke the story thoughtfully, and do not read all kinds of fables.

          The reasons are precisely the obsolescence of weapons, the lack of military officers, since they simply cut off all the sensible, the stupidity of Stalin, and the stupidity of the likes of you that the sea knee-deep before ass.
          All of Europe went nuts when the Red Army was smashed in the early days, because the USSR was just with its bayonets and shegolalya.
          Only practice has shown that bayonets against tanks or mp 40s do not really help.

          And since you are such a historian, you are probably aware of the size of the German Army? and the number of some border guards of the USSR ?.

          All this heroic garbage has really gotten me, we are the coolest we will crush all with heroism. And what about the others? finger made? or smarter just can?

          All this bullshit works until the first jump on the machine-gun pillbox. Well, and who is dumber, the army where the soldiers sacrifice their lives to complete the task due to the lack of proper weapons or equipment? or those who take care of their soldiers and spend money on victory instead of lives.

            undispatch,
            Well, even a sin is offended by a German.
            I will answer you, the glorious descendant of the heroes of the Wehrmacht.
            1. "All Europe" at that time lay under Germany and she was sick from this fact.
            2. Nobody blew up the Red Army - lost battles are not a lost war. Recall who in whose capital the tanks drove?
            3. Everyone had tanks, you won’t believe it, including ours, and the bayonets relied on the Mauser carbine, and the MP-40 was a very rare machine at the beginning of the war.

            I am not a historian, I just love my Motherland, and I do not like the dirty myths about its history.
            That war began according to your rules, a German, it was waged dirty and mean, I do not argue - skillfully. But we learned and returned your favor. By the way. not arranging the reciprocal genocide of your people.

              Mikhado,

              I'm not German but ok.
              I will answer you a glorious descendant of "Vasya Pupkin"
              1. All Europe at the time of 41 years did not lie under the Wehrmacht because Musolini was an ally and Italy, as far as I know, refers to Europe.
              So is Greece.
              2. Well, I'm sorry, if you destroy almost the entire regular Army and the Border and push them back inland, you probably are not familiar with the meaning of this term. And hundreds of thousands of prisoners of war are a clear indicator of successful defense, and + to the argument that technology is for fools .
              And I didn’t say that they were destroyed, no, it was defeated. (Do you recall who was already practically standing near Moscow? And again, how many attackers and defenders were there?).
              3. Yes, everyone had, only we had light tanks! such a small fact omitted by you.
              And I don’t need to tell stories about tanks here. I have one grandfather, the tankman, the second machine gunner from Stalingrad.
              Just the same, the MP 40s were not a rare occurrence in 41, since it was before the fig MP 38 and the MP 40 was produced in series, and it was because of this and tank fists that the Germans managed to crush most of the Armies so quickly.

              I didn’t talk about dirt or not, and you have Soviet myths from here and such stupid reasoning.
              I said that it’s not enough to be brave but naked.

      After the bullets hit the armor, a general contusion of the body occurs (bruises from the palm of your hand), and you can easily die from shock ...
      With regards to the conductors inside the ammunition, it is clear that they are introducing CAN-BUS for communication. Fonit will be such a fighter !!!! And yet, nobody has canceled EW funds!

    The redundancy of conductors in clothes can play a trick if the enemy is armed with electromagnetic designs (from electromagnetic grenades to directional emitters) in the best case, the electronics will fail, although the conductors can be heated to ignite the clothes and the fighter, I'm not talking about the effects of amy from special munitions or something more powerful smile In terms of disguise, too, a failure - the fighter will be a walking-walking antenna. Just fun EW units.
    Then it will be less delusional to sew fiber into clothes - at least not afraid of Amy and not detectable from the outside.

    Let’s think a little about the price of this form, as well as maintainability and God forbid the battery sits down, but how to wash? (I advise Americans to attach a small atomic reactor and a lead plate on their back to protect against it)

      Yes, an ambush can come out with washing. But how to darn her is generally a joke. laughing

    In my opinion, such know-how forms are created purely for local wars, where all technological progress can be used, and as a rule in relation to a weaker opponent ... and then yes, this form meets all the parameters:
    not covered with sweat, dirt from a march of throws - Why, a helicopter or BMP will bring a soldier to the battlefield dry and honest. we have superiority.
    Why remove the wash and change the batteries? - in two hours the battle will end and at the base where everything will be replaced and washed.
    But for large-scale wars, world wars - this technological crap for the first few hours ... and then a bayonet-knife and maskhalat.

    Lovely, wonderful thing! I hope that at least three horseradish worth of dollars will be spent in its development, testing and, most importantly, the mass introduction of a probable enemy in the troops! And better - four times more!
    The introduction of innovations in weapons can be divided into the following classes:
    1. Hellishly complex, incredibly technological weapons.
    How is it different? Firstly, it stands like ... like ... like an airplane! Combat. What are the other features, besides the fact that there can not be many such weapons? The fact that to own it should be allocated a special group of people. It is necessary to select them according to the mass of various, rarely encountered parameters and mercilessly train, teach and develop. You also need to spend a mountain of money on this. And yet ... at the adrenaline peak, even such terminators regularly break shameful failures. At about the same frequency as this weapon itself crashes, for example, an 6-8 aircraft is considered to be an excellent indicator without breakage ...
    2. Massive weapons for the entire army. What are the differences? In simplicity. Simplicity, low cost and efficiency. Why is that? Because that is the level of the user, in short ... No, this weapon should not be primitive. It should be as high-tech as possible. But. It should be controlled by "one button" and there should be no possibility, purely by design principles, that something will work wrong.
    What do we get by trying to interfere with the first and second? Ask admins how they evaluate the intellectual level of their users. You will hear about crooked nerds. About idiots, idiots and donkeys ... A place of honor will be taken by the Destroyers of the Worlds - hellish users who can cram Windu into her basket. Impossible ?! And I offered to send the disc to Gates, let Billy jump ... Note, I'm talking about people sitting in comfort, warmth and comfort, without any significant stress, all they need to be able to not confuse buttons when typing texts and layout of solitaires. In a combat situation, with a real threat of death ...
    Next, the weapon itself. Every single gadget must have a connection with other gadgets, otherwise its efficiency is close to zero. For this he needs an antenna ... Yes, I remember. We will encode the signal cleverly. We use packet data transmission, push everything into the subnoise range, bump three passwords into two bits ... yeah ... But the white noise generator emits ALL THIS. Immediately. Do not be surprised that your super-technologically advanced "combat first aid kit" smashed all your medicines at once. And you won't have time to be surprised, because the signal to detonate your ammunition also came, right with all the codes and passwords ...
    These are not "constructive flaws", this is a fundamental issue that makes it impossible to use radio communications in an equal war. The advantage, and unconditional and overwhelming, will be possessed by the side that perfectly knows the enemy's high-tech weapons. She developed methods of dealing with it (not so complicated, because breaking is far from the same as building), but she herself ... does not use anything from idiotic gadgets, relying on perfect, but not cybernized weapons and, most importantly, on moral strong-willed qualities and training of their soldiers, which should be massively developed, to the detriment of the computerization of spotty toilets.
    Fighting these cyber warriors will be fun ...

      Michael! +++++++++++ No words. You have given Amers a development strategy! Let them roll along this road! ATSTSTSkie users (maybe losers?). Long live the concept of an interactive battlefield! Let's make a terminator out of every Amer Marine!
      But seriously, there will be a pitchfork. The satellites will go wrong, the GPS will "fail", the "network" will disappear, and that's it ... Rather EVERYTHING! Black polar fox!

    I am a supporter of the need to fight with what is at hand
    and if the Orthodox-liberal military suddenly takes a nap on his sleeve with buttons, then he can scribble in every possible way, which is very dangerous, more than enough reasons for the next world .... soldier

      Alikovo,
      Well, where are they to us.
      Everything is brilliant here.
      Shove outdated weapons to their Ministry of Defense, which is forced to take it .. obviously take them and collect all the breakthrough technologies of the enemy along the way, and God forbid they’ll buy from them.
      Before such cuts they still have to grow and grow.

    The Yankees are constantly trying to impose on us another "arms and defense" race, thereby forcing us to spend the budget on knowingly "false" developments, which in practice will not bring much benefit.
    So it was with the USSR, when the concept of star wars was imposed on us, here, apparently, also something from the same series smile
    Our main motto should be: simple - does not mean inefficient! am

    2033 year. The tunics from the special research unit of the US Department of Defense are testing the first model of smart military. Some tailcoats from the Upper Wardrobe of the USA and jackets from the Middle Shelf protest against jacketless experiments.

    Here I have an idea to make a "smart body" everyone knows that with electrical discharges, muscles contract, so you can make a super soldier put all the techniques in his body and control him from the base. Imagine that you are playing gta only on the other side of the remote control, a real controlled person, physically very developed, plus intelligent aiming increase the chance of hitting the target. The question is the possibility of such an operation and its cost. Of course, I'm not worried about cruelty, because in this way you can perform an operation on a terrorist and he will kill his own
