Lockheed Martin has crafted its own approach to helping soldiers carry heavy combat loads. Like Raytheon's XOS 2, HULC is a hydraulic-powered exoskeleton. It helps the wearer carry up to 200 pounds for extended periods of time. Powered by a computer and a battery, it straps on and allows for deep squats, crawls and lifting with minimal exertion, Lockheed Martin says. Last summer, the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research tested the gear.
