Proliferation of Smartphones

The proliferation of smartphones is widely seen as a major driving force behind wearable technology. In 2014 alone, the installed base of smartphones stands at over 2.4 Billion, representing global penetration of nearly 35%. The penetration is further expected to increase to over 60% by the end of 2020.

Given their mass market adoption, smartphones often serve as the wireless connectivity hub for most wearable devices (at least for the time being). Wearable form factors such as smart watches or smart glasses are thus widely seen as companion devices for smartphones. By offloading processing and connectivity onto a smartphone, the cost of a wearable device is considerably cheaper, even more so considering the price of sensors keeps dropping.

Enhancing Situational Awareness in the Battlefield

Being aware of one's surroundings is a major challenge for soldiers on chaotic battlefields. Wearable technology can greatly assist with this, by combining avirtual display overlay with information from reconnaissance and other soldiers. As part of its ULTRA-VIS2 program, DARPA3 has developed a low-powered, light weight wearable display system for dismounted ground troops. The displays can significantly enhance situational awareness by displaying a range of non-line-of- sight information in front of the soldier's eyes. The augmented reality view includes information such as the location of nearest friendly units, distance to objective, and satellite images of the area.

A similar display unit from Raytheon allows military pilots to see, feel and hear everything going on around their helicopter or plane without necessarily having to be physically seated in the cockpit. The Aviation Warrior display unit provides pilots a 360-degree view by using the airplane's sensors and overlaying it on a translucent screen attached to the helmet.

Enabling Battlefield Mobility

Wearable technology can also help improve mobility in the battlefield. For example, a solar energy kit developed by universities4 in the United Kingdom enables the military uniform to use photovoltaic cells to harness the sun's energy, as well as thermoelectric devices to turn temperature differentials into electricity The energy kit significantly alleviates the weight5 of traditional backpacks containing batteries that soldiers have to carry to have power supply for different devices. In addition, by eliminating the need to return to base for recharging, the solar pack also increases the potential range and duration of military operations.

Facilitating Communications with Military Dogs

Wearable technology can also facilitate communications with military dogs. For example, using the FIDO6 system, a bomb-sniffing dog could be trained to activate a specific kind of sensor for a specific kind of bomb, instantly alerting its trainer to the threat.
