A partnership between a Manhattan radiation technology company, K-State, and the Department of Defense lead to the creation of a mobile bomb detection unit. The mobile unit is a tactical vest made from ballistic nylon, nylon spacer mesh, and diamond rip-stop. The unit encloses 16 detection devices and is designed to be comfortable, sleek, and avoid attention.
The design team won an R&D Design 100 Awards from R&D Magazine in 2017.
