AMENDED CLAIMS

received by the International Bureau on 24 April 2020 (24.04.2020)

[Claim 1] A tactical system comprising:

a load-bearing garment;

at least one camera for capturing images;

at least one power distribution and data hub; and a pouch with one or more batteries enclosed in the pouch;

wherein the at least one camera is incorporated in and/or removably at tachable to the load-bearing garment;

wherein the pouch is removably attachable to the load-bearing garment; wherein the one or more batteries are operable to supply power to the at least one power distribution and data hub; and

wherein the at least one power distribution and data hub is operable to supply power to at least one peripheral device.

[Claim 2] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the load-bearing garment is a vest, body armor, or a plate carrier.

[Claim 3] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the one or more batteries

comprise:

at least one battery element;

a battery cover including one or more channels to accommodate wires of one or more flexible omnidirectional leads and a compartment sized to receive the at least one battery element;

a battery back plate attached to the battery cover; and

the one or more flexible omnidirectional leads including a connector portion and a wiring portion, wherein a flexible spring is provided around the wiring portion, wherein the wiring portion and the flexible spring are held securely in the one or more channels in the battery cover such that a portion of the flexible spring is positioned inside the battery cover and a portion of the flexible spring is positioned outside the battery cover.

[Claim 4] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the one or more batteries are operable to supply power to the at least one camera.

[Claim 5] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the at least one peripheral

device is a tablet, a smartphone, a computer, a radio, a range finder, a laser designator, a global positioning system (GPS) device, night vision goggles, an electronic jamming system, a mine detector, a metal detector, a camera, a thermal imaging device, a short wave infrared (SWIR) device, a satellite phone, an antenna, a lighting system, an en-

106 vironmental system, an amplifier, a receiver, a temperature sensor, a depth sensor, and/or a drone.

[Claim 6] The tactical system of claim 1, further comprising control electronics configured to determine a state of charge of the one or more batteries.

[Claim 7] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the pouch, the at least one

power distribution and data hub, and/or the one or more batteries include at least one layer of a material resistant to heat and/or a material resistant to bullets, knives, shrapnel, and/or other projectiles.

[Claim 8] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the pouch is Modular

Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE)-compatible.

[Claim 9] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the pouch is operable to affix to the load-bearing garment using at least one zipper.

[Claim 10] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the at least one camera is

operable to record audio and/or video.

[Claim 11] The tactical system of claim 1, further comprising at least one

transceiver operable to transmit information to and/or receive in formation from at least one remote device.

[Claim 12] The tactical system of claim 1, further comprising at least one physi ological sensor, a rangefinder, at least one environmental sensor, at least one microphone, at least one tactor, at least one Global Po sitioning System (GPS) component, at least one frequency scanner, at least one sound generator, at least one audio jack, at least one video jack, at least one firearm sensor, and/or an optical head-mounted display.

[Claim 13] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the load-bearing garment

includes a material resistant to bullets, knives, shrapnel, and/or other projectiles, and wherein the material resistant to bullets, knives, shrapnel, and/or other projectiles includes a metal, a polymer, a ceramic, an aramid, an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, a carbon fiber composite material, boron nitride, a boron nitride composite material, a shear thickening fluid, and/or a magnetorhe- ological fluid.

[Claim 14] The tactical system of claim 1, wherein the at least one camera includes a plurality of cameras positioned to provide a 360° view of sur roundings proximal to the load-bearing garment.

[Claim 15] A tactical system comprising:

a load-bearing garment;

at least one camera for capturing images;

107 at least one processor;

at least one memory;

at least one power distribution and data hub;

image recognition software operable to identify at least one object and / or at least one person in the images; and

a pouch with one or more batteries enclosed in the pouch;

wherein the at least one camera is incorporated in and/or removably at tachable to the load-bearing garment;

wherein the pouch is removably attachable to the load-bearing garment; wherein the one or more batteries are operable to supply power to the at least one power distribution and data hub;

wherein the at least one power distribution and data hub is operable to supply power to at least one peripheral device; and wherein the at least one camera and the at least one processor have real time or near-real-time two-way communication.

[Claim 16] The tactical system of claim 15, wherein the at least one processor and the at least one memory are housed in a smartphone or a tablet.

[Claim 17] The tactical system of claim 15, further including a communication device operable to transmit an alert relating to the at least one object and/or the at least one person identified in the images, wherein the one or more batteries are operable to supply power to the communication device, and wherein the communication device is in communication with the at least one processor.
