The High Tech Warfighter


There were two significant features I noticed at the AUSA conference in Washington DC last week: first, all the stars (as in General officers) and second, all the high tech “toys”.  Of course there were the missiles, drones, guns and vehicles. What stood out the most was the hi-tech warfighter gear. All soldiers will eventually be equipped with GPS, iPhones, iPads, soldier Cams in addition to their weapons. Currently battle uniforms are being designed to accommodate all this gear. This represents a great opportunity for Raine to develop the cases for these items.  I assure you, Raine will be on top of this.
I do hope the soldiers still learn the old school skills of compass and map reading. After all, the new gadgets will only last as long as the battery.
