ARMOR project a new system will be developed that can determine the physical
condition, endurance and resilience of military personnel during training.
Different sensors will be integrated in the system to record various
physiological parameters of soldiers while they participate in training
missions. The measurements collected by these sensors will be processed with
advanced algorithms developed by the Dutch Army and by the University of Twente.
ARMOR system intends to support the army in reducing the number of injuries
that soldiers incur during training, and to help optimize training programs.
Eventually the system could also be used to individualize training for
soldiers. One of the key innovations that is incorporated in the system is use
of Evalan’s force sensor. This sensor will be integrated in the boots that are
used by the Dutch Army, and will enable the continuous monitoring of the load
that soldiers are carrying.
