The following is a release from Cassandra Mainiero, Picatinny Arsenal Public Affairs:
Crouched on the desert floor, a Soldier watches an enemy vehicle rolling in the distance and gauges its range to her platoon. However, when she’s calculated the distance, rather than radio her platoon leader, the Soldier grabs her phone and relays the information with a software system called the Leader/Soldier Effects Tool Suite.
The tool suite, also known as LETS, is designed to provide the dismounted Soldier the capability to plan, coordinate and execute fires quickly and efficiently.
LETS functions on hand-held devices, such as mobile phones, and vehicle platforms. Its users can share firing details including range assessment, battle damage assessment, weapon emplacement, and control measures.
By using LETS, Soldiers can also coordinate tasking, track team members, illustrate sector sketchers and target nominations, and notify other users about strike warnings. Moreover, the software includes customizable settings and a “help” button if users forget how to perform a particular function.
The tool suite works within the Maneuver Aviation Fires Integrated Application, which is designed to work on Nett Warrior, a handheld device that assists with combat operations.
