What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

   The Ready Sled is the launching product of Global Defense Research. We are owned and operated by disabled veterans. We have great experience and partnerships that guarantee success of our campaign to help save lives of our service members. We have already made great accomplishments in our progression of the Ready Sled in such a short time period. Our Ready Sled won the Inpex Gold Medal Award for Personal Safety & Security Product of 2016! This has been an amazing journey so far and we have made many great friends and partners so far. With our growing resources and relationships we know we will do great things. We strive to better ourselves everyday by expanding our knowledge and skill base to increase our capabilities as a business. This dedication is how we ensure we will overcome the few obstacles left in our path. 

   We have almost completed the project but as stated in the campaign's video; we need help to finish it. We have already sourced great manufacturing, prototyping, and distributors. We now just need a final push to finish the process. That's why we need your help to share and contribute as we launch this product to provide this amazing device to those who need it. We know this is slightly un ordinary for a Kickstarter campaign, and we like it that way. This ensures we remain a veteran owned business and can uphold the highest quality products and service to our troops and police. We know that no one will offer the same care and desire to help those who serve. That is why we have chosen this route to build a community supported company that allows the people to stand behind those who stepped forward to protect us. Thank you for your support and may we all start off 2017 with a kind heart and good will by contributing to such a good cause as this. We deeply appreciate your support!

   

Risks and challenges

We here at Global Defense Research have made great efforts to prepare this device for production to begin saving lives. We have consistently overcome all obstacles so far in bringing this product to those who need it. Our dedication and resourceful nature ensures success of this en-devour.

Our greatest remaining risks are those we are currently facing as addressed in the campaign video. We need to raise $40,000 to finish perfecting the design and it's components.The funds raised are also to finish developing our website and to purchase our first order of finished products for sale. Nearly all challenges have already passed as we strive to bring this amazing technology to those who need it.

We are nearly complete with the project and have generated great interest in purchase orders; as well as under consideration for adoption by government agencies. With the continued support of our followers and our rapidly growing network of contacts we are sure to succeed. In the event we go beyond our set goal; we will use the additional funds to develop another life saving device we have begun work on. Thank you for believing in this cause, and helping us make it a reality.
