In today’s world, enemy warfare is an important factor in any nation’s security. One of the important and vital roles is played by the army soldiers. There are many concerns regarding the safety of soldiers. So for their security purpose, many instruments are mounted on them to view their health status as well as ammunitions present with them .Bio-sensor systems comprise various types of small physiological sensors, transmission modules and processing capabilities, and can thus facilitate low-cost wearable unobtrusive solutions for health monitoring. GPS used to log the longitude and latitude so that direction can be known easily. These devices are being added to weapons and firearms, and some militaries such as the Israeli Army which are exploring the possibility of embedding GPS devices into soldiers vests and uniforms so that field commanders can track their soldier’s movements in real time. RF module can be used for High-speed, short-range, soldier-to-soldier wireless communications that will be required to relay information on situational awareness, tactical instructions, and covert surveillance related data during special operations reconnaissance and other missions .So by using these equipments we are trying to implement the basic life- guarding system for soldier in low cost and high reliability.
