Share +1 Pin Share Stumble Shares 0 LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST: By Eric Lieberman U.S. Special Operations Command expects the first prototype of an “Iron Man” suit to be fully constructed by the end of 2018, according to a DefenseNews report published Thursday.
“It’s getting very real right now,” Col.

The U.S. Special Operations Command has reportedly been experimenting with its development for four years. Roughly 35 vendors, and scientific and academic institutions are studying the engineering of such a nascent invention. “We are going to start building parts and snapping them together,” Miller continued, adding that the product must have safety and utility, according to Defense News. Developers want to make the suit extremely light for easy maneuvering, while still providing fortified protection — what Miller calls “kinematically seamless with the body.”
