Class of 2012 Cadet Gerrit Van Ommering explains the modifications he made to the defensive barrier system which earned him top prize at this year's MIT Soldier Design Competition. Working with Class of 2012 Cadets Justin Weeks, Josh Peterson and John Paulson, the team used a current model HESCO sand-filled barrier and modified it to reduce the need for heavy equipment and extensive construction time. The design was showcased April 28 at Projects Day, which featured more than 300 capstone projects, senior theses and research activities from West Point cadets and invited colleges and academies.
