Measurement Technology NW and the US Army “IPEMS” Project

In November 2008, Measurement Technology NW and a group that included Midwest Research Institute, Boston Dynamics, Smith Carter CUH2A, and HHI Corporation, was selected by the US Army to design and build the “IPEMS” project (Individual Protective Ensemble Manikin System), including state-of-the-art chemical testing facilities and a first-of-its-kind robotic thermal manikin system for performing high-resolution testing of protective clothing and equipment under live chemical exposure conditions.
