Our project’s sole focus is protecting the US warfighter in hostile situations and environments. The final design is a modular proof of concept, which provides active detection of a threat, prompting the system to deploy barriers for US warfighters to take shelter behind, increasing their survivability in hostile situations and alerting them to the direction of fire.
