Sensors will tell about the health of the American soldier

The command of the US Army is planning to order the development of sensors that will monitor the physical condition of the military and warn about possible jumps in blood pressure, dehydration and violation of perception due to lack of sleep, reports report with reference to General Joseph Caravalho.

At a conference on medical developments, the general said that "promising sensors will also be able to signal external threats, such as chemical pollution or other extreme environmental conditions that could harm a fighter's health." The appearance of such devices is expected to 2025.

According to Dr. Jeffrey Palmer of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, "continuous monitoring of biomolecular and psychological indicators of military personnel can significantly improve their effectiveness in battle." In turn, Phil Plisky of the University of Evansville stated that “monitoring the condition of the fighter will help prevent physical injuries.”

In researching the risks faced by US troops, Baylor University will help. It is assumed that about 1750 ground force soldiers will take part in testing instruments. Data on the state of health of the fighters will be collected by a computer, which will determine possible threats to health. In case of detection of such symptoms, the military will be sent for medical examination.

Earlier, the Pentagon ordered the development of portable blood test machines. With their help, in particular, it is planned to diagnose a head injury to servicemen.

    When will they come up with an automatic first aid kit? As in "Indomitable Planet" :-)

      Xh-heh! You can't think of a sensor for every "brain" laughing Or did someone see their infantry? I’ll go drink what is left, so that they have more idiots multiplied. Sin of course. So what to do? laughing This is "sel a vi".

        And they will signal whether the fighter is sleeping or not, whether he is working or phylonite - or maybe he just got scared and gave the striker from the battlefield. Not if their military is not stupid - such sensors will fail quite often.

      And in general, if you take into account that they learn to shoot in computer rooms and drive armored vehicles on computer simulators, they should at least stick this sensor in DOPA, it will be useless!

    Data on the well-being of the fighters will be collected by a computer, which will determine possible threats to health. If such symptoms are found, the military will be sent for medical examination.

    With pressure sensors, etc. Americans can fight only in Africa, against weak countries that don’t even have money for a berdan, ALL AMERICOS PRIVATIZED. And against us, they immediately roll off the sensors, and they will have to either turn them off or run away, which apparently they will do. soldier

      Well, if, remembering M. Zadorny, in the USA a policeman who stopped a drunk Russian breathalyzer shows the level of alcohol "corpse", and this corpse is also talking ... well, as if all the fuses would go off.

    . Equipment should be taken care of. Two divisions were landed in Normandy, and a month later one division dropped out due to elementary rheumatism. And it’s just that we and the Germans put shoes on our boots. And mattresses in boots. The result is obvious.
    And now they also come up with sensors. The soldier has diarrhea - send a helicopter. Maybe they are trying to overcome Mistral because of this? They think that we are turned on this? Well, stupid.

    Yes figs. In the boots there were only landings and huntsmen. And the army is in boots.
    By the way, what kind of freak came up that shabby shops for vending machines in boots shoved?
    Firstly, the junior command staff was armed with machine guns.
    Secondly, the ammunition was in 6 stores in two pouches. And they were no more.
    And most importantly - try running around the shafts with the store.
    Yes, there is still a version that threw grenades into the boots of Nemchur. A grenade, by the way, weighed a pound. It is without a defensive cast-iron shirt.

    The question is who will produce these devices? Maybe by then the mattresses will impose yet another sanction.
    Poor, poor American goldwoman. By the way. By then, only African Americans will remain in the army.

    Interestingly, there will be a sensor that will fix FEAR at the time of our aircraft flying around their connections. For example, "Donald Cook", there may even be sudden diarrhea started. laughing

    The Americans would be better off realistically changing their warriors into winter shoes; winter will soon come in Ukraine. Psaki clearly does not know about this. And then in the photo they are so brave these brave ordinary Ryan, and their shoes are light, summer, even despite all the nanotechnologies that are hidden in them for the winter are not suitable. Then a thermometer in the ass just does not help. Everyone probably remembers the photo of German soldiers from the 1943 year near Stalingrad. As if these brave guys did not have to dress in women's shawls and felt boots presented by compassionate peasants.

    Just about, these mattress toppers are always muddying up everything in life - they invented all sorts of sensors, they test some kind of "soft exoskeletons" ... Not so that, like in our army, they took and replaced footcloths with socks. This is progress, I understand it! And no nuclear mushroom is scary to socks, and again the savings - no scarce chips and microcircuits, R&D costs and other things. Sheer benefit poluchatsa.
