This paper presents a system with tracking and remote control capabilities for military applications. An electrooculogram and a micro-controlled system with wireless communication were developed as controller based on the eye movement. The system can be used as remote control for military purposes and also for soldier monitoring. A proof of concept to act and be tested as mouse pointer was implemented with reduced circuitry and PIC microcontroller in order to achieve low cost and low profile platform. Experimental results are shown to validate a prototype of the proposed system.
