Bringing paratroopers back home safely? There’s now an app for that

Associate Professor Tracy Hammond and her graduate students in the Dwight Look College of Engineering developed the GeoTrooper system to aid paratroopers in the field, working in collaboration with the 18th Airborne Corps of the U.S. Army. The interactive Android phone application works in conjunction with a haptic vest with the goal to improve the movements and safety of paratroopers.
