The New Telcordian DBDU-1 (Digital Battle Dress Uniform Model 1) (a modified Type-3 Battle Suit created by Clairmont, and built under licensed in Telcordia). Is equipped with a Proto-Fuel Cell that provides enough to power the suits: Com., Camera, and OPSAT for up to 30 days without replacement. The suit also contains sophisticated heating, and cooling systems in order to keep the soldier comfortable in temptetures rangeing from 105* F to -40* F along with a built in EMHIU (Emergency Medical Hypo-Injection Unit) or as its affectionately called the "Emu”. Which can provide assist a medical technician with keeping a soldier stabilized in the case of battle field injuries, or to allow a solider to ignore minor injuries and keep going (thanks to the new Stim Mk-4) and is located on the right forearm. On the left fore arm is the DIA (Digital Interface Armband) that allows the solider not only to adjust his suits tempture and interact with the HUD, but also change his camouflage pattern thanks to. The outer cover of the DBDU-1 (and backpack) is a set of mimetic fibers that can change its color pattern to one of 30 pre-set camouflage designs, this does not make the suit invisible, it simply increases its environmental adaptability.

 

The DBDU is made entirely out of 7mm of flexible armor composed primarily of High Strength Ballistic Weave Fibers; which contain a large amount of genetically harvested arachnid silk. Making it very effective in stopping conventional small arms fire, and high velocity fragmentation protection. An internal ling of HAZMAT grade Puncture resistant plastic protects the sealed suit (and its occupant) from all non-corrosive Biological and Chemical weapons. The Outer layer is a mix of IR absorbing Fibers, and Mimetic fibers making the suits IR signature Is significantly lower than 90% of Military BDU's as well as added environmental adaptability

 

The helmet contains the OPSAT (Operational Satellite uplink) which provides the soldier (through the HUD) not only communications to any point on the globe, but relevant maps and target info, as well as satellite imagery. The helmet also has an attached personal Camera/Image Intensifier w/ Digital Zoom (to replace bulky Night Vision systems and Binoculars) that can transmit live footage for either the squad comms net for viewing at the corner of the other squad members HUD's or to the combat command center.  Also shown on the helmet’s HUD is a weapons system link, which provides information on ammunition, and a projected crosshair.  The outer Bullet resistant screen (where the HUD is projected onto) is covered Coating that adjusts to sudden light changes, kind of like a welder's mask to protect against laser and flash bang blinding.  Also a battlefield computer system with personal IFF would help with keeping friendly fire to a minimum.   Finally built into the Helmet is an extremely effective air purifier, which protects the wearer from Bio/Chem. weapons. 

 

The Armored Back Pack (a thin titanium shell to protect the contents from being crushed) is capable of carrying 10 days worth of MRE’s and a one gallon of Purified water (there is a built in water purifier to allow a solider to pick up water from any source, then purify it) a hydration tube runs into the soldiers helmet to allow access to fresh water at any time.  Located on the right side is its Satellite Uplink Antennae, which is lightly armored to protect it from shrapnel, but is rather vulnerable to small arms fire. All electronics are EMP hardened and are easily replaceable due to modular design.
