How Defense Research Is Making Troops More Effective in Wartime

4 tech products featured in this newspaper report. BTW, I was led to this report via Ares. Note: Above photo via Technology Review, features the Tactical Ground Reporting System (TIGR). The accompanying caption reads
Baghdad route planner: A new map-based application allows patrol leaders in Iraq to learn about city landmarks and past events and enter new data. In this mock-up provided by DARPA (the map does not reflect actual events), the purple line shows a possible Baghdad patrol route. Past events in a 300-meter buffer are noted. Hostile actions, such as IED attacks or shootings, appear as various red icons; friendly actions, such as visits to schools, appear as blue icons. Clicking the icons brings up text, photos, even videos.
