It's a very interesting project. If the efficient of solar cell can go be double or more, the wearable solar panel will surely make a great impact not only to the military uniform but also to civilian fashion.

Good. I'd like to see the commercial equivalent soon. I am constantly wondering if we offered the non-combatants in these remote war zones solar power for their houses and tents if we might better win 'hearts and minds'. At least on the margins of those troubled societies.

This is useful to every one.If this can generate 10 to 20 watts of power during peak hours of sun light then a real saving of battery power for the soldiers. A novel application is for the small agriculturist who spends most of the time in the sun light. This can directly power the hand held gadgets used for agriculture.
