Background: Wearable physiological monitors provide real-time information about many aspects of a person’s physical state. They can provide biofeedback to assist tactical breathing and arousal control, core/skin temperature, breathing rate, heart rate, oxygen saturation, or quantification of sleep/fatigue, along with a range of other measurable physiological parameters. These measures can be useful to improve the effectiveness of training, or to prevent injury in the training area or on the battlefield. Methods: Several data collection approaches were used in the writing of this report. In order to better understand the attitudes and outlook within the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with respect to our topic, we consulted numerous individual stakeholders within the CAF through questionnaires and focus groups, including members of the Infantry, combat medics, the Directorate Land Requirements (DLR), the Canadian Army Land Warfare Centre (CALWC), Canadian Forces Health Services (CFHS), and the Directorate of Fitness (DFIT). Furthermore, we attempted to learn as much as possible about the activities and interests of other nations in this technology domain by soliciting feedback through The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP) Technical Panel 19 (Human Systems Performance (Land)) and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) RTO HFM-260 (Enhancing Warfighter Effectiveness with Wearable Biosensors and Physiological Models). Results: We have found there to be widespread interest in
