Pentagon Launches New Push For Tunnel-Warfare Tech
“Underground settings are becoming increasingly relevant to global security and safety,” DARPA program manager Timothy Chung said in a taped segment announcing the challenge on Thursday. “Rising populations and urbanization are driving the demand to not only build up but also to build down…subterranean environments have remained an untapped domain in terms of developing breakthrough technologies for national security.” In other words, we need more tunnel tech — and as soon as possible.
Vital Alert has the capability to create safer environments for security and military personnel to communicate and send information in underground tunnels, preventing the advancement of enemy lines. By using VLF tech, our CanaryCommPac is a portable device allowing the passage of voice, text and data through solid materials from underground man-made tunnels, to teams stationed below and above ground.
