The article reports on the development of the Rifleman Radio by the U.S. Joint Program Executive Office (JPEO) Joint Tactical Radio Systems (JTRS) to allow each soldier to communicate to each other. Representatives from JTRS and 1st Armored Division evaluated the device through training exercises at Fort Bliss in Texas in November 2008. Colonel Daniel P. Hughes said that the device will allow them to communicate to each rifleman and send his location into the network. Major Tracy Mann suggested refining the radio to boost soldier capacity.
