In a close combat situation several types of non-verbal communication are available. However these signals have limits of range and reliability, particularly when line of sight is disrupted. This paper proposes the system for troops to interpret hand and arm military gestures applicable in close combat scenario. In the proposed system, signals are transmitted through secured Bluetooth connections and interpreted at the receiver end. k-NN algorithm, Lookup Table (LuT) and Decision Tree algorithm are used to determine the exact classification of the gestures. This paper presents a system keeping only one fellow trooper in picture and reported 94.6 percent accuracy of the military gestures interpretation.
