Outlining a Set of Theory-based Requirements for the Future Digital Soldier
The military information scene is expanding as technology advances, and it has a fundamental impact on combat activities. It requires a high level of precision, expertise and dedication to set the right standards for military concepts and to establish a proper set of requirements of standards for military concepts, such as in NATO. Digital devices have become an integral part of the activities of the combatant soldier, as the use of modern tools makes combat activities more efficient. In a modern society, modernisation processes extend to the field of defence as well, resulting in intensive development in a growing number of countries. The requirements of the digital soldier are nowadays influenced not only by the warrior but also by those connected to him in the full information space, since a modern soldier is already an element of a network in network-centric military operations.
