Special Ops’ ‘Iron Man’ Suit on Track for 2018

One of Special Operations Command’s highest profile technology development programs — the tactical assault light operator suit — is on track to debut in late 2018, a senior SOCOM official said.

The TALOS program began in 2013 at the behest of then SOCOM Commander Adm. William H. McRaven, who wanted more protection for commandos entering potentially dangerous buildings. He set a late 2018 deadline for the command’s science and technology community to develop a working suit that could ward off bullets and bomb blasts.
