Nett Warrior (NW) System
5VS utilizes the U.S. Army’s Nett Warrior system as an ultra-secure relay between the sensor and the AVSC (Army Vital Sign Cloud).
The data would be synthesized and then forwarded in three directions:
to the medic/soldier in the field, Mission Command and the Forward Surgical Unit (FSU)
The Nett Warrior (NW) is an integrated dismounted situational awareness (SA) and mission command (MC) system for use during combat operations.
Designed as a tool for leaders, NW provides unparalleled SA and MC capabilities to the dismounted leader, permitting faster and more accurate decisions during the tactical fight. With advanced navigation and information sharing capabilities, leaders are able to avoid fratricide and are more effective and more lethal in the execution of their combat missions.
The NW program delivers a SA and MC system, which has the ability to graphically display the location of an individual leader’s location on a digital geo-referenced map image. Additional soldier, platform and unit locations are also displayed on the digital user interface. NW is connected through a radio that will send and receive information from one NW to another, thus connecting the dismounted leader to the network
These radios will also connect the equipped leader to higher echelon data and information products to assist in decision making and situational understanding. Soldier position location information will be added to the network via interoperability with the Army’s Rifleman Radio capability. All of this will allow the leader to easily see, understand, and interact in the method that best suits the user and the particular mission. NW will employ a system-of-systems approach, optimizing and integrating capabilities while reducing the Soldier’s combat load and logistical footprint.
