In 2013 Elitac has been awarded with the yearly Defense Innovation Award in the Netherlands. The project focuses on the development of a tactile vest that supports navigation and covert communication for soldiers.
It enables the soldier to keep eyes, ears and hands free to focus on the environment and the tasks at hand. Tactile presentation of information increases situational awareness and lowers cognitive load.
The tactile vest is heavy-duty, washable and able to withstand military conditions.
