about PARC forum


Land Warrior is the U.S. Army's leading program to provide next generation capabilities to the dismounted soldier. This system includes communications, processing, display, navigational and other technologies that will enable the soldier to see first, understand first, act first, and finish decisively. In order take advantage of the most advanced technologies, a new military technology development paradigm was adopted that focused on rapid prototyping leveraging Commercial Off The Shelf equipment. This approach led to a highly successful demonstration at the Joint Contingency Force Advanced Warfighting Exercise.
