• Bionic Lift receives United States Air Force contract

• Broad military experience, technological savvy and innovation combine to enhance readiness and help reduce fatigue and injuries in the workplace

RICHMOND, Va. - Sept. 21, 2019 - PRLog -- Bionic Lift, LLC, a veteran owned & operated small business, is a national security-focused technology innovation company bringing technology to the warfighter.  Bionic Lift recently announced they have been awarded an AFWERX Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract from the U.S. Air Force for an upper-body, non-powered exoskeleton. Bionic Lift is focused on helping solve U.S. Air Force mission needs by improving workforce productivity, enhancing endurance, reducing fatigue and reducing workplace injuries, thus increasing Air Force readiness.

AFRL and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the SBIR process in an attempt to speed up the experience, broaden the pool of potential applicants and decrease bureaucratic overhead. Beginning in SBIR 18.2, and now in 19.2, the Air Force has begun offering 'Special' SBIR topics that are faster, leaner and open to a broader range of innovations.

Bionic Lift is an authorized representative and dealer/distributor of Skelex exoskeleton suits and performs research & development, industry analysis, sales, marketing, and process improvement through exoskeleton use.  Additionally, Bionic Lift assists organizations with innovation by using their awareness of customer needs gained during active duty service in the military and industry.

Bionic Lift CEO, USAF Brigadier General (ret) Carl Buhler stated "within the U.S. military, hundreds of thousands of maintenance, logistics, and support personnel—uniformed and civilian—perform a myriad of daily tasks involving repetitive motion, as well as awkward lateral and overhead arm & shoulder movement, often in difficult environments. The subsequent loss of productivity, due to worker fatigue and injury, has an adverse impact on readiness & costs."

Bionic Lift COO, USAF Chief Master Sergeant (ret) Greg Bernitt added "exoskeletons are a reliable way companies can help prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Exoskeletons are a means to augment the human weapon system with personal protective equipment."

Bionic Lift is also honored to be invited to serve as a technology demonstrator for the October 22, 2019 Defense Innovation Symposium in Dayton, Ohio.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Oct 20, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Oct 20, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Oct 20, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

The Latest: Concerts canceled over Hong Kong airport protest

Oct 20, 2019

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day. K-pop star Kang Daniel and Scottish band CHVRCHES both announced Tuesday that they are calling off upcoming events. American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin canceled an upcoming concert late Monday. Kang's management office said the cancellation of a fan meeting scheduled for Sunday was because of safety concerns related to the protests, while CHVRCHES blamed "unforeseen circumstances." The airport protests are the...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Oct 20, 2019

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
