Staying Ahead of the Enemy Reliable, rugged equipment engineered with frontline performance and agility in mind.

Tactical Equipment

Today’s warfighters need multi-functioning, reliable, rugged equipment that’s designed with frontline performance and agility in mind. For many years, Battelle has been the go-to team for Special Operations Forces and military teams to listen to their ideas and integrate science, technology and engineering with fast-track production and manufacturing. 


It doesn’t take long for items deployed to the front lines to become dated or obsolete, especially those embedded with advanced technologies. At Battelle, we’re working hand-in-hand with front line military equipment users to implement their improvement ideas to stay ahead of enemy threats and tactics. Our multi-disciplined teams of engineers and scientists work closely to resolve design challenges behind the scenes, while our materials experts enable enhanced solutions that in many cases extend the life of the equipment.
