The Internet of Things for Connected Soldiers and Battlefield Security - White Paper
Soldiers must maintain situational awareness at all times for safety and to ensure successful missions. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies provide connectivity between soldiers, sensors and other devices that help achieve these goals. But the battlefield is a harsh radio frequency (RF) environment as radio communications clash with numerous transmitting and receiving systems, and the risk of antenna damage from bomb fragments or bullets endanger the normal functions of these devices. This work examines how simulation can impact the design of devices and antennas and mitigate these environmental conditions.
