ECBC has partnered with the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC), Battelle Memorial Institute, and Priority Designs, to develop an improved neck-up personal protective equipment (PPE) concept.

The new concept will improve the historically challenging interface where a warfighter’s protective mask and hood meet, in order to provide greater protection from exposure to chemical and biological warfare agents.
