A self defense system for military and law enforcement agencies will be provided to US defense manufacturers.
The US Army is set to deliver a self defense solution for police departments to equip officers, as well as law enforcement and military personnel, to be deployed around the country.
The Army is developing a technology to provide the equipment that would be worn by military personnel.
The military and the US government will jointly develop the system, which is expected to be available to law enforcement officers by 2019, according to a report by US Army Times.
The technology could be used to deploy the protective gear of police and law-enforcement officers to prevent an attack or to protect people or property from harm.
A number of police departments are already testing self defense gear, and the idea of an Army solution to equip them would be a boon for local police departments.
The military is already providing some of its personnel with a variety of items to help them protect themselves, including body armor, helmets, flashlights and body armor plates.
The idea is to create a common set of equipment that can be deployed to local law enforcement.
