Our Roots

BEARS is a spin-off of BADENOCH LLC, an innovator in tactical and combat vehicle design.

The Origin of BEARS

Badenoch LLC was formed in 2005 to create transformative concept vehicles that offered significant improvements in mobility, survivability, powertrain versatility, and cost. The fundamental concepts remain a radical and compelling.

Survivability testing versus kinetic threats (ONR, TARDEC) and high-X blast (DARPA) confirmed breakthrough performance that has not been matched to this day.

The first BEARS sensor was first sold by Badenoch LLC to the Marines, PM LAV, to capture the effects of IED blasts in combat. Its accuracy, ruggedness and ease-of-use have made it an easy choice for survivability testing.

BEARS LLC has deep roots in innovation of military vehicles going back sixteen years.
