MRAP Overhead Wire Mitigation Kit

Soldiers driving the Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicle were frequently knocking out voltage lines, putting crews and equipment at risk in addition to aggravating locals and damaging infrastructure. Researchers at the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center at Warren, Mich. took an idea from Soldiers in the field and applied science. Officials said the kit adapts easily to newly integrated vehicles and requires no modification and can be installed without special tools. Photo Credit: U.S. Army photo
