About Blackbridge Defense
Blackbridge Defense was founded in 2014 to create quick release technologies for the battlefield. Our team consists of a group of SOF veterans who have deployed all over the globe and bared witness to countless capability gaps while on patrols, conducting ISR, and navigating deadly foreign waters.
There are countless mission sets that rely on speed and efficiency, which is why our mission is to design, develop and implement mission driven technologies for current and future warfighter problems.
We are an SDVOSB, ITAR compliant, and utilize manufacturing with ISO certifications. All products, development, and manufacturing are solely US based.

He has been innovating directly with DoD, Federal, and State teams ever since.
