Paper Abstract

U.S. troops are increasingly being equipped with various electronic assets including flexible displays, computers, and communications systems. While these systems can significantly enhance operational capabilities, forming reliable connections between them poses a number of challenges in terms of comfort, weight, ergonomics, and operational security. IST has addressed these challenges by developing the technologies needed to integrate large-scale cross-seam electrical functionality into virtually any textile product, including the various garments and vests that comprise the warfighter’s ensemble. Using this technology IST is able to develop textile products that do not simply support or accommodate a network but are the network.
