Scaled prototype for an autonomous Warfighter protection system with shields in a deployed position.

This year’s ARO team demonstrated an autonomous Warfighter protection system that acts as a squad member, defensively positioning itself and deploying protective shields. The team integrated two existing subsystems and added visual and voice commands, GPS navigation, and object detection. The system shall be a force multiplier, assuring our Warfighters that continuous protection is close at hand.
