These Bluetooth Panels Can Pinpoint Soldiers' Wounds - Kit Up!: In today’s operating environment, minutes of the precious “Golden Hour” might pass while ground units determine who is wounded and where. But a thin Mylar panel with a bluetooth link may eliminate some of the fog of war in the future.
The panels, which weigh a few ounces and can be worn under body armor, are printed with an electronic grid and a bluetooth device that can send an alert to cell phones or radios when the signal is broken by a bullet, shrapnel, or a knife wound.
A command post will receive information “identifying the location of that person, the identity, as well as where on the body he was hurt, without him having actually to call for help,” said Vik Patel, the CEO of the Arizona-based company Datasoft, which makes the panels.
