The future is always uncertain. However, by applying logic and imagination to current situations and technologies, the Future Soldier concept was developed to identify capabilities a Soldier might carry into battle.
This concept is not U.S. Army doctrine, nor is it intended to answer every question raised about warfare. The intent is to stir imaginations, and start a dialogue about how best to equip the Soldier. Future Soldier is a solid idea of how the future Soldier might be equipped.
The future Soldier shall be tailored with design considerations for each technology area with special emphasis on cognitive performance to improve Soldier effectiveness and an increase in operational tempo.
