'Soldiers in Australia may be getting a new wearable device that keeps track of their health status and whereabouts on the battlefield. In the event a soldier is injured, the biometric device would act as an “emergency beacon” that could help expedite medical assistance and evacuation. Experts hope the wearable technology will reduce overall casualty numbers.
The device, called “Fight Recorder” has already earned the nickname “medical black box.” It’s being developed by two companies, Myriota and IMeasureU, which have received a reported $700,000 from the Australian government’s Next Generation Technologies Fund. The two companies were selected out of a group of 47 top-notch companies and universities from across Australia and New Zealand. The Australian Defence Industry will also be working closely with the two companies to develop Fight Recorder. Myriota is a start-up communications company and IMeasureU is a wearable technology company. Sources say Fight Recorder will be probably share some traits with an existing IMeasureU product.
Minister for Defence Industry, Christopher Pyne MP, explained, “Survival rates for battlefield casualties are closely tied to response times and the Fight Recorder will enable Defence to quickly locate and treat casualties.”'
