Aren't they forgetting something?
".....According to Colonel Will Riggins of Program Executive Office Soldier, it's a wireless personal area network style setup, as opposed to today's cables and wires snaking around a soldier's body armour and helmet....." No chance. Having someone walking around blasting out Bluetooth or WiFi signals to the World in general will be a very quick way to get them dead. Any such source of electromagentic signals would make it easy for troops to be detected and pin-pointed, especially by low-flying recce aircraft. Cables connecting the items on the same soldier, especially shielded cables, would be massively better as they reduce signal radiation. Optical cables would be even better still and probably lighter, though probably more fragile. Modern battlefield radios have used infrequent burst transmissions for decades to avoid triangulation, so any setup that gave regulalry pumped out locating signals is a death certificate up against a technically savvy opponent.
"...."Once we're there I think we're going to have another huge jump in capability".... " More like a huge jump in combat casualties. One of the problems that has long stopped the US special forces being the "best of the best" is their chain of command allows continual and frequent political interference, as displayed in the ludicrous "Eagle Claw" fiasco. Imagine the remote intereference when HQ or even the White House can not just see exactly where you are, but also talk directly to every man in the unit via satellite coms. My prediction is that a lot of locater signals and sat coms will suffer "intermitant and unexplained failures" as experienced grunts switch them off in the field.
