Every Soldier a Sensor

AviationNow is carrying this report summarizing the latest gizmology to be studied by the army:

The Army plans to deploy a hand-held intelligence gathering and communication device that would allow each soldier to receive situational awareness information as well as transmit battlefield reports, Iwicki told NetDefense in an April 19 interview. "This would bridge the [information] gap ... Information goes directly to the soldier and the soldier's information goes directly to the enterprise."

Every day, in every way, we get closer and closer to a tricorder. If the damned things start to whistle when you turn them on I'm outta here.
