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.
