Death no option for future soldiers

Crouched in a desert trench somewhere in the Middle East, enemy bullets thudding into the sand just above his head, the wounded soldier checks his wrist-mounted thermometer. Itís a searing 43 degrees, and heís been trapped there for two days with little water and no food at all. Amazingly, heís comfortable. A microturbine integrated into his battlesuit provides power for a highly effective microclimate air-conditioning system that maintains his body temperature at a safe level.
