Description: COMFUT (COMbatiente FUTuro or Future Warfighter) is the Spanish Army's 21st century infantryman equipment. Build around a real-time command and control (C2) system provided to every squad member, COMFUT includes: a portable computer; helmet and firearm connectivity; helmet-mounted camera; night sensors; a new bulletproof vest equipped with hi-tech elements, such radios, batteries or telemeters and endurance modules; a backpack integrated in the vest; a high comfort suit featuring reduced infrared signature; and thermal stability. The C2 system will provide key capabilities such as situational awareness, squad members and target position. COMFUT leverages the technology of the German IdZ system also developed by EADS.

The Spanish Ministry of Defense awarded the 24.5 million Euro COMFUT research and development contract to EADS Defence & Security Systems Spain on 18 September 2006. The contract called for procurement of 36 COMFUT systems to equip a section comprising three squads of 12-infantryman each. The section was scheduled to be ready in 2009 with the development work starting in late 2006. The Spanish Army could acquire up to 7,000 systems after technical evaluation expected in 2009. The main partners of EADS on the COMFUT program are: Elint, Fedur, GMV, Iturri and Tecnobit. The Army Infantry Academy based at Toledo will act as the program's office.
