The army wants proposals that includes existing technology. The sensor would be worn on the body possibly on the wrist, on a watch, shirt or belt.

The army wants the device to indicate if the person is having difficulty breathing or if they have a fever.

If symptoms are detected then the service member can be fully tested.
