They are man portable unmanned aerial systems (UAS) that are equipped with a broad range of systems such as airframe, engine, autopilot, navigation system, sensor package, and communication link.  These vehicles are smaller in size, and cost-effective, as compared to the manned aircraft and standard UAVs. They aid in providing modernized, digital communication formats that are more secure and reliable. Also, the MAVs provide on-board sensors such as LASER, SAR, IMU, and GPS that help in rapidly modernizing their communications equipment. Of late, there has been an increased implementation of the miniature unmanned systems for electronic attack (EA), destruction of enemy air defense (DEAD), suppression of enemy air defense (SEAD), communication transfer, combat search and rescue (CSAR) and ISR operations.

Moreover, in an attempt to make amends with the challenging concerns of the 21st-century digital warfare, the US Army is developing wearable solar cells that are to be integrated into the soldier uniforms. It is aimed at supplying power to troops laden with electronic devices and deployed to remote battlefields. For example, in 2014, Bionic Power, a Vancouver-based vendor developed a knee brace that captures the kinetic energy of a marching soldier and supplies it to portable electronic devices.  It is named as the PowerWalk M-Series, which could supply up to 12 watt-hours of electricity and charge three smartphones. During the same period, Bionic Power also signed a contract with the Canadian Department of Defense (DOD) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to test the PowerWalk.

In 2011, the UK Army scientists worked on a solar-powered battery pack, which was 50% lighter than the legacy power cells carried by the soldiers. The two-year project, called as Solar Soldier project, was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

It was aimed at producing a power pack where energy could be gathered from a combination of solar cells and thermoelectric devices. The idea was to harvest energy and store it using a combination of a super capacitor and a lithium battery.

Similarly, Sagem, a prominent vendor in the market, developed FELIN warfighter’s clothing, equipped with robust digital communications and navigation system, which connects the warfighters to their commanders.

As a result, the defense manufacturing companies worldwide are focussed on integrating the inexpensive and lightweight, man portable electronics systems to reduce the burden on infantrymen. The defense ministries have also invested in R&D projects, focussing on weight reduction of equipment that the soldiers carry.

For example, in 2011, Nett Warrior program in the US Army attempted to lighten the load carried by soldiers, with enhanced safety, communication and attack capabilities. Similarly, the MOD of the UK Armed Forces has planned on the reduction of load on the soldiers from 155 lbs to no more than 55 lbs, under the Reducing the Burden on the Dismounted Soldier (RBDS) program, by 2020.
