The team will be presenting their Hands-free Automatic Coupling Restraint System (HACRS)

New Hudson, MI – Pratt Miller Engineering will be presenting their Hands-free Automatic Coupling Restraint System (HACRS) at the Association of the United States of America (AUSA) Annual Meeting on Monday, October 12th. The HACRS team is being included in the Monday morning Innovator’s Corner session that focuses on the US Army’s TRADOC Technology Imperative: Conduct Expeditionary Maneuver and the Army’s technology focus area; Mobile Protected Precision Firepower. The objective of the Innovator’s Corner is “to pro-actively identify innovative technologies/approaches to address our Army’s top challenges and provide a forum to encourage dialogue between industry, academia, and military stakeholders.”

HACRS (pictured) was designed under a SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) program to address the limited use of seat belts in military ground vehicles by providing soldiers with an easy to use, comfortable system.

The HACRS briefing will begin Monday at 12:00 p.m. in the Innovators Corner booth #3725 (lower-level). Following the presentation the system will be on display in the Med-Eng booth #8342 throughout the remainder of the show.
