Historical research is an ongoing process. New discoveries are always being made which shed light on their knowledge and the personal defense engineering skills of our ancestors. We need to keep current and active in the research and archeology circle
Local, state, and federal Government requirements and or desires will need to be documented and testing plans developed to meet and or exceed them.
Contract bids will need to be acquired. This is the basis for developing design requirements and operating expense projections.
Capital will need to be secured for materials, production and testing.
Advanced materials and their production requirements are prohibitively expensive to develop the prototype units in our facility. Outside manufacturing of sub assembly components for in house assembly is planned for.
The Crimson Forge basic design premise is that personal armor for must allow for protection against edged, blunt force trauma, shrapnel, and small arms fire while maintaining sufficient mobility and dexterity for full use of all protected portions of the soldier.
Our initial program is to demonstrate our concepts on the most difficult portion of the human anatomy to effectively articulate, the human hand. We will be providing protection for the hand against edged, blunt force trauma, shrapnel, and small arms fire while preserving the ability to use firearms and a keypad.
Once demonstrated on the hand our design concepts will be expanded to the rest of the body.
Our Initial need is for the funding to acquire and evaluate specific modern materials along with our proprietary design concepts to demonstrate our basic proof of concept.
Our Second need is to acquire the funding to produce a fully functional modern material prototype component and to perform testing for functional assessment.
Our Third need will be funding to provide for materials and production of field test prototypes to be made available to interested military and law enforcement organizations for further testing.
