Exoskeleton Development Contract for Sarcos Robotics

Second Award from USAF for More Robust System

Utah-based Sarcos Robotics announced on 13 August it has been awarded a second exoskeleton development contract by the US Air Force (USAF).

The first contract, awarded last year, focused on quasi-powered, full-body exoskeleton robots that facilitate lifting up to 80lb loads. This second contract is focused on a more robust version, capable of lifting up to 200lb loads, with a specific focus on use cases relevant to USAF logistics applications.

We are very pleased to have been awarded a second contract to expand our work with the United States Air Force,” commented the company’s Chairman and CEO, Ben Wolff. “The Air Force is leading the charge when it comes to developing next-generation robotics technologies that combine human intelligence with the strength, endurance and precision of machines to serve as a force multiplier while also dramatically reducing the risk of injury. These exoskeletons will be a game-changer for the Air Force.”
