SOFIC 2013–Kestrel 4600 Heat Stress Tracker


When Kestrel introduced its Heat Stress Tracker, the company made it possible for every soldier to monitor his or her own exposure to heat stress. Prior to its inception, the U.S. Army only monitored conditions for a general area, which meant that heat stress assessments where never very accurate.

The Kestrel 4600 Heat Stress Tracker, with Compass, performs two vital functions. Determine appropriate exposure to heat stress conditions for occupations with heavy gear requirements, such as HAZMAT response and firefighting, and utilize wind speed and direction for plume prediction and modeling. Carry less equipment and get more accomplished quickly in emergency situations!The Kestrel 4600 Heat Stress Tracker is available with or without Bluetooth functionality.
