Today, we are seeing the beginnings of a new generation of systems intended both to protect and to increase the combatant's power and resistance, and sometimes to erase him from the adversary's detection systems, whether either in the form of exoskeletons, connected “body-armor”, or adaptive camouflage outfits.
