    Lead: Lack of communication can hinder any military operation. Thanks to upgrades in communication over the years this threat is being eliminated but it's still a concern. That's why the Army is evaluating its latest improvements during the Network Integration Evaluation 13.1 at McGregor Range Complex New Mexico.

    VOSOT: One software upgrade the Army is evaluating is called Soldier Radio Waveform. It's used by the Shadow 152, an unmanned aerial vehicle. This new system means it's not limited by distance, weather and terrain. The SRW software allows both the command and their troops to see the images that the UAV is projecting which helps eliminate some of the miscommunication in the field. According to SFC Jaime Castaneda that's not its only advantage.
