Recently we are witnessing the adoption of autonomous robotic platforms with cooperation abilities by an increasing number of units in modern armies (IDF among them). Advanced command and control systems are required to operate such platforms efficiently and safely. Furthermore, when used by infantry troops, the command and control hardware should be comfortable to carry and operate “on the move”. Beyond state of the art technologies, the development of such systems requires further research in several fields: wearable computing, mobile access networks and video transmission over specialized networks, power supplies, etc. In this paper we present an experimental system that we developed for the needs mentioned above.
