First Combat Technology – Beta StrikeTec

First Combat Technology – Beta StrikeTec

One issue I have with claiming to be the “First” is that you actually have to be the first in order to claim that. Thats the point right? Well despite others who may claim it, in 2011 we had a fully built product and application that started our journey into broadcast, gyms, fight camps, fan events over the new 7 years.

In 2013, our team met in front of the ABC board to discuss use in upcoming Bellator MMA events around the US. We worked with these commissioners to find safe and non-interfering way of using StrikeTec in live fights.

StrikeTec Lab

StrikeTec Lab

While we do work with a lot of external resources that specialize in specific areas needed to build StrikeTec, we decided we needed an in house lab to test with daily. We would schedule users of all skill levels to come in each week and help us during our creation.

StrikeTec Approved in Vegas

StrikeTec Approved in Vegas

On February 17, 2015 StrikeTec went in front of the NSAC to discuss the final verdict on whether StrikeTec would be used during the life fight or not. To be honest I had no clue that I would be on the same public hearing as Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz. I was sweating bullets! These two fighters were being punished for banned substances being used during the fight and I’m asking for permission to do something that had never been done before and could potentially be a foolish mistake.

However, the outcome was huge. I gained the trust and respect of the commission and we move forward using the technology for DirecTV’s big knockout boxing venue. It was a success! I owe a huge thank you to the DirecTV’s team and efforts. It was a blast to work with these guys.

Generation 4 StrikeTec sensors

Generation 4 StrikeTec sensors

After Gen 4 sensors, we narrowed down our favorites about these cases along with the previous cases we have used along the way. Although a soft overmolding seemed to be reasonable, it didnt not pass our Quality Assurance during the Production Verification Testing.
