Biomonitoring: New Partnership ensures tactical Information superiority

Rheinmetall has set new standards with its innovative and powerful Gladius 2.0 soldier system. Its open, modular, scalable architecture makes the system unrivaled worldwide as a user-centric soldier system solution. Up-to-date situational awareness with a consistent, stable communication infrastructure enables operational sensor-to-shooter networks. Gladius 2.0 guarantees a decisive advantage on the digital battlefield under even the most challenging of conditions.

Rheinmetall continues to improve its systems and has partnered with QUS in vital data tracking to develop a solution in this area. Live tracking of vital data allows training units to be adjusted during training to ensure optimal fitness development. During operations, information on the physical condition of individual soldiers or the entire unit is available, which is essential for further tactical decisions. This is particularly crucial for soldiers in complex operational scenarios under challenging conditions.

Modern Equipment Supports Mission Fulfillment

QUS, with its established system, already meets many requirements relevant to successful integration into soldier systems. Therefore, it can be easily integrated and significantly expands the capabilities of soldier systems.

“We are very pleased about the new partnership with Rheinmetall. We will develop a system that seamlessly integrates into Rheinmetall’s battlefield management system, creating additional value in this area. Knowing and assessing the vital data of soldiers at any time is very important for performance,” says Hannes Steiner, QUS CEO & Founder.

Timo Haas, Chief Digital Officer (CDO) of Rheinmetall AG and Managing Director of Rheinmetall Electronics GmbH: “Biomonitoring, as we know it from competitive sports, will also play an important role for soldiers in the future to optimize operational readiness. For us as a system provider, QUS’s solution offers an additional component to our modular soldier system. And with a view to digitization, AI-supported data can make an important contribution to tactical decisions at higher command levels.”

The joint solution of QUS and Rheinmetall within the partnership will combine everything related to body data and fully exploit its potential. The ability to combine already proven sensors (heart rate, respiratory rate) with other external sensors (such as temperature, etc.) enables a new basis for tactical decisions based on the knowledge of the soldiers’ current condition.

Fusing this data with tactical information represents a new dimension of information superiority regarding one’s own troops and will improve soldiers’ performance and the command process.
