Nett Warrior

’Network of networks’ increases Soldiers’ situational awareness and combat effectiveness

First fielded in 2013 and developed by Program Executive Officer (PEO) Soldier in conjunction with several manufacturers, the Nett Warrior system is a combination of wireless networks, handheld devices and communications gear that gives commanders a better picture of what’s happening on the battlefield. Today’s Nett Warrior brings situational awareness down to the squad level, allowing commanders to quickly pinpoint the locations of improvised explosive devices or enemy troops through GPS using a smartphone. This data can be transferred securely by radio, enabling decision-makers to interact and effectively change mission tactics on the fly.
