Future Integrated Soldier Technology (FIST)

As part of the UK FIST project, Mawashi was commissioned to assist Rheinmetall Canada in the development of the concept of the new soldier system.



  • Electronic C4ISR (personal digital assistant (PDA), soldier's embedded computer);

  • Load conveying system including modular MOLLE pouches and anchor stations for the following devices: batteries, Activity Recognition Module (ARM), Portable Commander Computer (PCC).

In particular, the design of the electronic boxes has been improved to make it more ergonomic and to facilitate the interaction between the human and the central computer in order to increase the effectiveness of the soldier in combat situations. The protection of cables and connectors was also increased and the external design was conceived to match the soldier's equipment.
