Solider cooling systems are technologies used by soldiers to maintain their body temperatures and keep themselves cool, thus preventing injuries caused due to overheating. The physical and psychological stress of combat and harsh climatic conditions are factors which are difficult to alter. However, they could be overcome using different types of cooling systems. This technology is still in its research and development phase. Increasing use of technology in communication, weapons, and navigation has led to an additional load on soldiers who work in extremely inhospitable weather along with which they have to carry heavy weapons and armors. This makes them highly vulnerable to various risk factors. Reducing the weight of this burden is an ongoing process. Meanwhile, cooling vests are anticipated to reduce their strain.

The soldier cooling system market is primarily driven by increasing advancements in the optimization of heat exchange techniques, control technology, and refrigeration, which are likely to produce technologies that are cost-effective, compact, and efficient. Specialized cases with severe heat loading require additional air movement, larger cooling equipment, and sensors. Increasing need for national security caused by rising terrorism is bolstering the demand for military technologies and weapons. Moreover, concern for the health of soldiers is also fuelling the need for soldier cooling systems and technologies globally.
Lack of proper integration is a major factor restraining the growth of the soldier cooling system globally. Integration of electrical components is complex because of their bulky size. Another important factor is the high manufacturing costs involved.
