The article focuses on FELIN soldier system development. It is based on the premise that the infantry soldier should be considered as a "system", and it covers the development of new uniforms, personal and combat equipment and weapons with the view of an integrated "soldier system." A major advantage of the FELIN system is its modular architecture. FELIN is designed to adapt to alternative radio solutions and handle operational software tailored to different missions, whether for platoon leaders, squad leaders, gunners, etc. All subsystems are interconnected a wired electronic tactical vest which also supports a modular pocket concept.
