The Marine Corps has been working on a futuristic experiment recently. In collaboration with innovation centre MIND, the GRAVITY Fly Suit has been tested. This makes it easier for special forces to overcome vertical obstacles.
In the flight suit, a person can move through the air in a harness with jet engines. The suit has been tested in various situations, for example when boarding ships. It has also been tested in a built environment.
Thanks to the Fly Suit, the soldiers can get to places that were previously virtually unreachable. As a result, the suit gives new options for tactical deployment. It can also offer civil emergency services new opportunities. The experiment stemmed from a desire for new ways of boarding operations.
