MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The forces will for the first time practice securing field mobile command posts with the use of rapidly deployable technical means of protection, the ministry noted in a statement.
"The Strelets-Chasovoy-1 and the Strelets-Chasovoy-2 [personal navigation] systems, which help decrease staff enrollment by almost half, will be involved in fulfilling this task. This system represents a bracelet worn by a sentry. In case of an emergency, the information [from the bracelet] transfers to senior commanders via the protected channels," the statement said.
