TOWNSVILLE, Aus - U.S. Army Soldier from Comanche Company, 4th Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment, receives a LifeLens patch as a part of the U.S. Wearables Experiment at the Townsville Field Training Area, Australia, July 23, 2023. The Wearables Experiment issued sensors to Soldiers participating in Talisman Sabre 23 to collect data such as core temperature and heartbeats to help predict Soldier health. This data will inform algorithms which can assist in identifying potential health issues regarding Soldier readiness to enable mission success. Talisman Sabre is the largest bilateral military exercise between Australia and the United States advancing a free and open Indo-Pacific by strengthening relationships and interoperability among key Allies and enhancing our collective capabilities to respond to a wide array of potential security concerns.
