Atlas Devices Awarded Best in Show for Powered Ascender Exhibit at Special Operations Forces Industry Conference

Atlas Devices is honored to have been chosen to receive the inaugural “Best in Show” award at this year’s Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC). Although it was our 9th year attending the expo, our efforts to continually expand the interactive nature of our booth paid off especially well this year, leading to the recognition by a unanimous decision of the judges. Thanks to our ongoing R&D efforts continually yielding exciting new innovations to showcase, we had a great reception from many users who connected with the capabilities offered by our ever-expanding product line. Our triple-tier shipping container climbing structure contained both a ferromagnetic wall and a “hook and climb” assembly. We were able to demonstrate virtually every product in our catalog, most notably our newest Powered Rope Ascender: the light and compact APA-1X—which spares none of the legendary ruggedness and reliability that Special Operations Forces expect from Atlas Powered Ascenders. Other tactical access and rescue solutions included the Atlas Tactical Ladder (ATL), the REBS Pneumatic Grapnel Hook Launcher, and the REBS Compact Launcher. We enjoyed connecting with professionals from around the world to show how our solutions and development capabilities can extend reach and reduce risk to warfighters and tactical service personnel. Thank you to all who were involved in making this conference so successful!
