Army assesses new Land Warrior system.
THE Army recently conducted an extensive operational assessment I of the Land Warrior and Mounted Warrior Soldier systems at Fort Lewis, Wash.
Land Warrior, developed by Program Executive Office-Soldier at Fort Belvoir, Va., combines computers, lasers, navigation modules, radios and other technologically advanced equipment to improve Soldiers' situational awareness and their ability to communicate on the battlefield and, ultimately, their ability to fight effectively and survive.
Mounted Warrior, designed for combat-vehicle crew members, includes communications systems and displays that will improve situational awareness for Soldiers both on and off the vehicle.
The 2nd Infantry Division's 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment, conducted the May-through-September assessment, which was sponsored by the Army Infantry Center at Fort Benning, Ga., and PEO-Soldier.
The battalion was equipped with 440 Land Warrior systems and 147 Mounted Warrior systems for the assessment, which will provide insights about the systems' combat effectiveness.--ARNEWS
