The Army is looking at a new smartphone solution for its wearable computer system, Nett Warrior, after ordering a halt to the program’s development over the summer.
Program Executive Office Soldier unveiled a mock-up of Nett Warrior on Oct. 6 that trades the earlier versions’ helmet-mounted monocle display, processing device, GPS and small hand-held keyboard for an all-in-one “end-user device.”
Army officials said they expect key soldiers in eight deploying brigades will be issued these systems in 2013. The system would be issued primarily to rifle companies and reconnaissance companies who operate on foot.
