Abstract : Equipment for ambulatory monitoring of troops in the field, measuring deep body temperature, skin and/or internal suit temperature, heart rate (ECG derived), and activity has been developed. The equipment includes an ingestible temperature pill RF transmitter, body mounted electronics (Man-Pack) to acquire, process and/or store sensor-obtained data, and to transmit such information to Relay and/or Base Stations up to one mile away. Relay and/or Base Stations are software-reconfigured versions of Man-Pack modules, with additional battery, antenna, keyboard-control and display capabilities. The system design permits up to fifty individuals within a one-square mile area of uneven terrain to be monitored by one Base Station with appropriately placed Relay Stations. System design is modular, so various configurations of Man-Packs, Relay Stations, or Base Stations are possible. The system, in various Man-Pack configurations built from furnished Phase III modules, has worked well in field exercises.
