My answer to Are there any functional U.S. Army future soldier programs right now?
Answer by Ken Larson:
“The future soldier is presently being defined, prototyped and in some cases fielded by technology development programs. These programs address the non-human element, but the real issue in the future soldier program is the soldier him or herself.
As the U.S. continues into a second decade of the war on terror, our citizens and our volunteer military are growing disinterested and weary respectively.
The Military Industrial Complex (MIC) continues to make grand strides in technology, spending billions on new air craft and naval vessels, cyber warfare tools and sensors, while we downsize the combat soldiers to stand in the job line or wait for admission to veterans’ hospitals. “
