Abstract The individual Warfighter is the single most important weapon system on the battlefield lethal, agile, decisive and highly adaptive. Every major military conflict, campaign or action in U.S. history has been marked by the critical role of boots on the ground by men and women in uniform. Despite technological advances that increase capability and survivability, and weapon platforms that shock and awe, boots on the ground are, and will remain the foundation of successful combat operations and an important instrument of U.S. foreign policy. Taking care of the needs of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, and Homeland Defenders is the unique, Joint-Service mission of the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC). The NSRDEC core mission is focused on maximizing survivability, sustainability, mobility, combat effectiveness and field quality of life through technology generation, application, integration and transition to address identified user needs, provide solutions to operational capability gaps, and solve field problems rapidly by treating the Warfighter as a system.
