Aussie Soldiers Go Green

Aussie Soldiers Want to take over Australia? Attack at night!

According to Coolest Gadgets, Aussie soldiers will have solar panels built into their backpack and will power a wide range of electronic equipment used in combat including GPS nav equipment and radio packs.

“This is fighting in the information age, where every soldier is connected via sophisticated communications equipment and uses sensors to provide information on an enemy’s position,” said Lieutenant Colonel John Baird, “but it uses a hell of a lot of power, and the disposable batteries we are using now are far from ideal because when they run out the soldiers have to return to base and take the used batteries with them.”
