The article focuses on the ultrawide-band (UWB) system being used by the U.S. Army in their training at its Military Operations in Urban Terrain at Fort Benning, Georgia. The UWB system uses the British Ubisense technology to track locations. Gary Washam, director for advanced programs, said that UWB can provide low cost indoor combat training. A variety of industries is also using the system such as a nuclear power plant in England to monitor radiation levels.
