The Mounted Soldier System (MSS) is an evolutionary program with identified increments. Increment I provided the Mounted Warrior Helmet-Mounted Display, and Increment II will augment current capabilities under the MSS program. MSS will provide the combat vehicle crew members increased capabilities to conduct offensive and defensive operations. The MSS consists of a Heads-up Display, Cordless Communications, Microclimate Cooling, and force protection items. These subsystems will provide platform commanders and vehicle crew members increased effectiveness on the network-centric battlefield in areas of command and control, situational awareness, communications, and force protection. MSS also provides improved integration and systems engineering to enhance capability synergy and allow crewmen to better perform their functions in the confined spaces of combat vehicles. Helmet-Mounted Display Capabilities: The Helmet-Mounted Display subsystem shows situational awareness information and sensors by controlling video signals coming from various vehicle sources. The integration supports up to four crewmen per platform and up to five video signals. Cordless Communications Capabilities: The Cordless Communications Capabilities system provides increased safety and mission performance to the platform’s crew with the addition of a wireless connection capability to the vehicle’s intercom and radios. It allows the crew to communicate by voice over the platform’s intercom system when mounted or dismounted within 300 meters of their platform. The system automatically detects when a crewman becomes disconnected from the intercom system and allows the disconnected crewman to continue to have voice communication with the crew. Microclimate Cooling System: The Microclimate Cooling System is integrated into the platform and features a cooling vest worn by the Soldier. It reduces crewman heat stress and provides increased comfort during operations in hot environments. Soldier Force Protection System Capabilities: Soldier safety is enhanced with the Improved Combat Vehicle Crewman Coverall, Fire Resistant Army Combat Uniform (FR ACU), Fire Resistant Environmental Ensemble (FREE), flame-resistant and moisture-wicking undergarments, ballistic and laser eye protection, flame-resistant hand, face, and foot protection, and the maxillofacial shield. Soldier effectiveness is improved with the ambidextrous individual weapon holster, an integrated CVC Helmet system, and a lighter-weight, multi layer, improved body armor system.+ More details
