Project

IoT solution to measure the physical load of soldiers

In cooperation with the Royal Dutch Army and the University of Twente, Evalan has kicked off the ARMOR project. ARMOR is a National Technology Project financed by the Department of Defence of The Netherlands. In the ARMOR project, a new system will be developed that can determine the physical condition, endurance, and resilience of military personnel during training. Different sensors will be integrated into the system to record various physiological parameters of soldiers while they participate in training missions.
Physical load

The problem

The work of soldiers requires enormous physical effort and the risk of overburdening is high. The Ministry of Defence wishes to prevent absenteeism of their personnel but up to now, the physical load was hard to measure objectively. They asked us to provide an IoT solution and to manage their ARMOR technology project (Ambulant Registration of Military Operational Readiness System).

Extra details

ARMOR is being developed in collaboration with the department Trainingsgeneeskunde en Trainingsfysiologie of the Dutch Ministry of Defence, the University of Twente, and Evalan. By using each other’s technology and knowledge we achieve the best possible solution for ARMOR.

“Over the past years, Evalan proved to be a very valuable partner to cooperate with. They are innovative, professional, flexible and enthusiastic and they implement solutions that meet our objectives.”
