The paper deals with the conceptual design of Identification of Friend-or-Foe (IFF) System for Dismounted Soldiers using radio-laser transceivers i.e. laser transmitter mounted on gun and laser detectors & UHF transceiver mounted on the helmet. The gun assembly initiates the query towards the potential target soldier using a low divergence laser beam signal. The helmet assembly on the target soldier detects the laser beam, generates and transmits response in UHF band. This response is received and decoded by the helmet assembly of the interrogating soldier and the gunner is informed whether the target is friendly or unknown via audio/LED display.
