Contract imminent for Objective Force Warrior

US Army representatives are predicting the imminent contract award for the Lead Technology Integrator with its revolutionary Objective Force Warrior (OFW) system.

According to Jean-Louis DeGay, project manager of the Warrior Systems Integration Team at the US Armys Soldier, Biological and Chemical Command, the OFW represents revolutionary technological changes as well as an evolutionary extension of the armys currently emerging Land Warrior programme.

"What weve done essentially with OFW is to start with a naked soldier and, in line with the goal of reducing overall weight and bulk and load for the individual soldier, worked our way out.

Looks really good!

Even though this may give US soldiers the edge in a battle, it still won't change how well a soldiers performs, as that is attributed to his training, not how expensive gear he has on.

It would suck if one of those helmets were lost on a battle field, and the technology stolen and duplicated by the enemy.

Here is some pics and info on the suit that is going to come out before the one above.












"Land Warrior integrates small arms with high-tech equipment enabling ground forces to deploy, fight and win on the battlefields of the 21st century. Land Warrior came about in 1991 when an Army study group recommended the service look at the soldier as a complete weapon system. Land Warrior is a first-generation, modular fighting system for individual infantrymen. It is composed of six integrated subsystems that include clothing and equipment needed to enhance soldier lethality, survivability, mobility and target acquisition capabilities."

Got this from globalsecurity.org Link about future soldier

Yes we have several "Official" threads and this could be the official future soldier thread. What do you think?

How would that suit hold up against an RPG in the back? Not too good I am guessing. That seems to be how many US soldiers are being killed these days.

Man, you figure with suits like that the soldiers could just walk around and absorb bullets, similar to those bank robbers in LA a few years back. They seem to be making the suits lighter, but I wouldn't mind a few extra pounds in a few vital places if it keeps me alive.

Well the RPG is a anti-material weapons. It would take alot of amour to protect one person.

People have survived impact from RPGs. What occured was that the ED(explosive device), was not yet in arming distance or was a dud. However it has happened, as I recall an event from the first gulf war, a soldier was knocked through a wall by a RPG and survived, his vest prevented it from going through him like a watermelon. With broken ribs and a mild concussion I believe the he was ok, and fit to return to the battle field later that month. I can't find the article now, but am sure someone knows what I am talking about.

This wont protect # exept a 9mm gun.

Will it protect from a ak-74?

NO

Soldiers already have protection from AK-47 rounds. They just insert ceramic plates into their vests. The protection that the new suit will provide will be much better.

Correct Advisor,
"How Grenades Work"
Link:
science.howstuffworks.com...

Excerpt:
"Impact grenades must be unarmed until they are actually fired because any accidental contact might set them off. Since they are usually shot from a launcher, they must have an automatic arming system. In some designs, the arming system is triggered by the propellant explosion that drives the grenade out of the launcher. In other designs, the grenade's acceleration or rotation during its flight arms the detonator."
