Revision's Answer to TALOS Stands Out at SOFIC

Revision Military's Kinetic Operations Suit attracted a lot of attention at the 2015 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa, Fla. this past week.

It was the only attraction on the exhibit floor to take a stab at U.S. Special Operations Command's vision for creating the Tactical Assault Light Operators Suit, or TALOS -- a program the command launched in 2013 to create Iron-Man-style suits designed to give operators increased physical strength while providing them with greater ballistic protection and acute situational awareness on the battlefield.

SOCOM officials maintain they are making progress toward the goal of having a working prototype by 2018 but revealed very few details about the program at SOFIC.

I wrote a program-update story for Military.com that has Revision officials talking about their new suit that features a powered exoskeleton and rifle-round stopping body armor that covers 60 percent of the wearer.
