The Dismounted Close Combat Sensors system is an innovative new system, developed by the UK's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, that is designed to make it possible for commanders to go ahead tracking the movements of their troops without having to GPS, while also augmenting their combat readiness via other information.

What's great about the Dismounted Close Combat Sensors is its ability to monitor threats, improve engagement abilities and share information in a more coherent manner.

The fact of the matter is that GPS might be reliable for regular urban use, but is not ideal for military applications due to the fact that it is dependent on satellite signals and isn't always the most reliable. The Dismounted Close Combat Sensors system fills this gap using open-source information to keep army commanders in the loop at all times.
