The U.S. military is bolstering its use of technology on the battlefield with new devices and capabilities aimed at improving how soldiers communicate.

New rugged routers for military vehicles and satellite- and radio-based networking technologies the Department of Defense plans to deploy will give soldiers new tools to transmit data and voice communications more efficiently and securely, according to the military.

The DOD has made a series of strategic investments of late in technology to improve battlefield communications, ranging fromnew networking capabilities to mobile devices soldiers carry with them in battle. That investment shows no signs of slowing, even as federal agencies and departments face budget constraints and must prioritize where they spend their technology dollars.
