Medical training dummies such as this one, at Army Research Laboratory-Orlando, help train Soldier medics across the Army on how to save lives while on the battlefield. Such medical training equipment must mimic the behavior of the human body as closely as possible in order to provide Soldiers the best training. Researchers at ARL-Orlando are working to identify the artificial materials that most-closely mirror the behavior of actual human tissue so that such medical training devices can provide for Soldiers the best training experience possible.

This Mobile High-Energy Laser-equipped Stryker was evaluated, April 12, during the 2017 Maneuver Fires Integrated Experiment at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The MEHEL can shoot a drone out of the sky using a 5kW laser.
Spc. Brandon Sallaway, a fire support specialist and forward observer from Fort Carson, Colo., points to a sticker on the side of the Mobile High-Energy Laser-equipped Stryker he helped evaluate, April 12, at the 2017 Maneuver Fires Integrated Experiment at Fort Sill, Okla. The stickers represent the number of drones the MEHEL has shot out of the sky using a 5kW laser. Sallaway was the first Soldier to actually use the MEHEL to take down a target.

The Torso and Extremity Protection System" or TEP, under development now at Program Executive Office Soldier, sheds about five pounds of weight from the IOTV, and also adds a wide degree of scalability that commanders can make use of depending on threat level and mission.
The Army Jungle Combat Boot, under development now, features a low-height heel to prevent snags on things like vines in a jungle environment; additional drainage holes to let water out if it becomes completely soaked, speed laces so that Soldiers can don and doff the boots more quickly, a redesigned upper to make the boots less tight when they are new, an insert that helps improve water drainage, a lining that helps the boot breath better and dry faster; a ballistic fabric-like layer under a Soldier's foot to help prevent punctures, and a foam layer between the rubber sole and the upper to provide greater shock absorbing capability. The JCB will be issued this spring and summer to two full brigade combat teams in Hawaii, part of the 25th Infantry Division, for evaluation.
