Cohort company SEA will lead the physical and technical software integration of soldier personal area networks with the British Army’s current body armour and load carrying systems as part of a UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) research and development effort.

On behalf of the MoD's Soldier, Training and Special Projects team, SEA will work with Blacktree Technology, BAE Technology, Black Diamond Advanced Technology and Ultra Electronics to deliver an integrated solution to demonstrate how soldiers may benefit from a seamless communication experience.

Incorporating three different systems, the integrated solution will allow for seamless communication between devices and enhance the performance of the system through various means, such as extending battery life. The intelligent personal area network will make communication simpler and easier for soldiers in the field, while producing a more standardised system.

Steve Hill, managing director of SEA, said: ‘Following a competitive bidding process, we are delighted to be leading on this project and are looking forward to working alongside industry partners as well as our sister company, Marlborough Communications Ltd, to deliver a solution that can take soldiers’ personal area networks in a new and revolutionary direction.’
