By leveraging new technologies that enhance the Soldier’s ability to survive and succeed in combat, the Rapid Equipping Force has delivered successful solutions, to include robots for interrogating caves and suspicious packages for booby traps and explosive devices; personnel and vehicle scanning systems; hearing conservation and communication devices; persistent surveillance systems; digital translators for Soldiers to communicate with locals in their own language; explosive material detectors, and power generation equipment and advanced material for energy power conservation. Rapid acquisition is a key asset to the Army in support of the Global War on Terrorism, as it preserves America’s technological superiority in combat and boosts every Soldier’s survivability and lethality. The Rapid Equipping Force’s adaptive practices are at the forefront of Army modernization.
