ABSTRACT:

Nowadays, the security of any nation is of the utmost importance. Land, water, and the title of “most powerful nation” are the objects of ongoing wars. The three professional uniformed services that make up an arm forces are the air force, navy, and army. As the lifeblood of every military, soldiers often perish in combat because they are unable to access medical care in times of crisis, and those serving in special operations or on missions often become disoriented and lose touch with command. In response to these worries, we developed a project that can track a soldier’s vitals at all-time using a wireless body area sensor network (WBANS) that includes sensors for temperature, heart rate, and more. Additionally, we can monitor the soldier’s precise whereabouts at all times with the use of GPS. We can also track the weather with the use of oxygen level sensors, which will allow the authorities to provide out life-saving aid. The army and the authorities are able to communicate with each other over GSM. The GSM system is designed to link the soldier to their base unit and relay their current position and health condition if it detects any irregularities in the readings of the wireless body area sensor network (WBASNs). Our goal in utilizing all of these tools was to create a simple soldier guarding system that was inexpensive, lightweight, portable, and accurate.
