Lock­heed Martin’s Ex­oskele­ton wins awards


Lock­heed Martin’s For­tis Ex­oskele­ton re­ceived sev­eral ac­co­lades in 2014 high­light­ing its in­no­va­tive tech­nol­ogy de­sign and its ben­e­fit to users in an in­dus­trial set­ting. This year, For­tis was recog­nised with a Gold Spark Award from Spark De­sign & Ar­chi­tec­ture Awards, named Prod­uct De­sign of the Year by Icon Mag­a­zine and also named one of CNN Money’s 36 coolest gad­gets of 2014.

The For­tis Ex­oskele­ton is an un­pow­ered, light­weight Ex­oskele­ton that in­creases an op­er­a­tor’s strength and en­durance by trans­fer­ring the weight of heavy loads from the op­er­a­tor’s body di­rectly to the ground. Lock­heed Martin re­cently de­liv­ered two For­tis Ex­oskele­tons to the US Navy for test­ing and eval­u­a­tion in in­dus­trial ship­yard en­vi­ron­ments.
