Enhanced Rescue Hoist Glove Operational Field Assessment Report

Rescue hoist gloves protect emergency responders’ hands during specialized helicopter hoist rescue operations. To improve the durability and performance of these gloves, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) sponsored the research and development of abrasion-resistant glove materials and alternative glove designs. This effort resulted in two prototype fingerless glove designs, tested by S&T's National Urban Security Technology Laboratory (NUSTL) during an Operational Field Assessment.
