1. An inductively coupled power and data transmission system for a soldier system comprising:

  • a main power source adapted for portable wearing by a soldier,apparel having an electrical conductor mounted therein in electrical communication with said main power source, said apparel having a first inductively couplable power and data transmission sub-system including at least one electrically conductive primary coil electrically connected to said main power source by said electrical conductor, and further including a primary processor and a primary transmitter/receiver sub-system cooperating between said main power source and said at least one primary coil so as to regulate power to said at least one primary coil and transmission of power and data by said at least one primary coil and reception of data by said at least one primary coil,an independent device having a second inductively couplable power and data transmission sub-system including at least one electrically conductive secondary coil, a secondary battery, a secondary processor, and a secondary transmitter/receiver sub-system, wherein said at least one secondary coil is electrically connected to said secondary battery and wherein said secondary processor and said secondary transmitter/receiver sub-system cooperate between said secondary battery and said at least one secondary coil so as to regulate reception of power and data by said at least one secondary coil and transmission of data from said secondary processor by said at least one secondary coilsaid at least one electrically conductive first and second primary coils adapted to transfer said power and data during inductive coupling at electromagnetic radiation frequencies between said at least one electrically conductive first primary coil and said at least one electrically conductive secondary coil,wherein, said power is transferred when said inductive coupling is closely adjacent inductive coupling wherein said at least one primary and secondary coils are closely adjacent to each other, and wherein a data link for said transfer of said data is established when said at least one primary and secondary coils are said closely adjacent inductively coupled, and wherein said data is transferred between said at least one primary and secondary coils when said inductive coupling is between said closely adjacent inductive coupling and near inductive coupling, wherein said near inductive coupling is constrained by factors including the wavelength, lamda, of electromagnetic radiation in said inductive coupling when said wavelength is used in the formula lamda/(2×

    pi) to determine an outer range limit of said near inductive coupling, as attenuated by attenuation of said radiation and power levels of said power transfer.
