The Ministry of Defence of Britian has started to run tests on Formula 1 technology to see if it is able to assist British forces which are currently serving in Afghanistan. Microchips that see action in F1 cars could be adapted to assist commanders of armored vehicles to inform medics which part has been affected, alongside the kind of injuries that might have happened. This would make it easier to know right from the start the extent of damage which occurs after an improvised explosive device (IED) is triggered so that the next practical step of action can be taken. It will take around a year before the technology is ready to see action on the ground.
