Paper Abstract

This contribution is orientated towards the area of the development of new Unattended Ground Sensor - UGS for an urbanized battlefield. Performing operations in a built-up area limits the movement, maneuvering and controlling of armed forces significantly. To protect one's own units, a dedicated communication network is often created with many inputs in the form of sensors with process units and with information which can be distributed to every soldier and commander on the battlefield. The used as well as future UGS are being developed in the sense of "Smart Dust" Technology. The first part of the contribution deals with the design of a miniature UGS which is to be used in an urbanized battlefield area. The next part then discusses the utilization of the properties of the human body as a possible source of feeding of the personal warning equipment and, at the same time, as a medium for data transmission. The conclusion of the contribution describes the results reached in the design of warning equipment where the human body serves both for its feeding and data transmission.
