Brought back from a trip to the near future, the service booklet depicts an evolution of the relationship between the Swiss armed forces, the militia and the civilian population. This document makes it possible to discover the types of competences acquired by a new kind of specialist called a “natural resources soldier”. It also highlights the soldier career in “mixed mode” which combines face-to-face service with remote contributions and training.
E-Soldat is a service booklet and an object used to encourage the debate and reflection on technological and societal issues that are often seen as abstract, complex and remote from everyday life. Based on a foresight study on “dual-use”, it addresses the potential evolutions of technologies and equipment designed for both civilian and military purposes.
