Abstract. Triage on the battlefield is very challenging task. Life of the wounded soldiers depends on the efficiency of this process and there is still lack of supporting solutions. This paper presents a new approach for using Internet of Military Things in combat triage. We propose an ontological approach to evaluate soldiers health state and information framework which allows first responders and commanders to query the sensor network for needed information. Some simulation experiments were conducted, which results show that the proposed method can be applied in highly distributed and heterogeneous environment of the smart devices on the battlefield.
