Infantry Soldier Situational Awareness Tool


ISSAT is designed to be used by Commanders as required by the operational scenario. That would normally be at the section and platoon level, but ad hoc and larger groupings are supported.

The EZPRR is the standard common radio enabling re-rolling of individuals without the need to change radios. Being based on the PRR, it retains the best characteristics of simplicity, minimal training and low weight. The extension of range and coverage enables both section and platoon level nets, with the self forming characteristics of the PRR net. It is backwards compatible to the PRR.

The impacts of physical and mental loads on individuals in the close combat environment are well understood and underpin the need for simple, intuitive and responsive capabilities, particularly for SA and navigation. The demands on the Commander have been minimised by using an intuitive man-machine interface and by reducing equipment size, improving integration and minimising mission weight. The functions offered to a Commander will be very rich and will enable a significant advantage in his planning role.
