Wireless control company Kord Defence has earned a $3.4 million contract through the Defence Innovation Hub.
The company is a division of Kord Group, which was established in 2007 and according to its website provides “innovative control and shot recording technologies for the military, law enforcement, homeland security and commercial shooting markets.”
“It is great to see Kord working to help soldiers more effectively control a wide range of connected electronic devices using Bluetooth technology through the company’s innovative wireless control system, said defence industry minister Melissa Price in a statement.
“This innovation has great potential to make existing systems more soldier-friendly and improve situational awareness for our soldiers deployed in the modern battlefield.”
