, a global leader in the production of full-body exoskeleton
robots for industrial and military applications, today announced that it
has been awarded a second exoskeleton development contract from the
United States Air Force.

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

"We are very pleased to have been awarded a second contract to expand
our work with the United States Air Force," said Ben Wolff, chairman and
chief executive officer of Sarcos Robotics. "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."
