Abstract : This paper describes the technical evolution to a dismounted revolutionized Warfighter System by the year 2025. An enormous contributor to dominating maneuver, it will be critical for winning future battles. The technologies described comprise what the warfighter will wear, carry, and consume, and those which will improve, sustainability, survivability, and command and control. The process is the Land Warrior program which promises numerous improvements, especially in the C4I, arena around the year 2000. The second major building block is the Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) Advanced Concepts Technology Demonstration which will produce major improvements in weaponry (lethal and non-lethal), C4I, small unit operations, combat ID, and sniper detection between 2003-2005. The author then outlines technologies achievable by 2025 that either build on MOUT technologies or offer radical breakthroughs. The paper concludes the Warfighter System should be a top military priority and that it merits special developmental structures and procedures.
