The gear, a combination of specially equipped phones, software and vehicles, helps track soldier movements and increases connectivity in remote areas of places.

The 3rd Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division is the second in the Army to use the gear during a deployment, following the division’s 4th Brigade Combat Team, based at Fort Polk, La.
