Over on the website for the Ministry Of Defense's Technical Research & Development Institute
in Japan, the program for the 2007 Research Paper Reading Meeting ~Defense Technology Symposium 2007
~, to be held on November 7-8 at the Hotel Grand Hill Ichigaya, was made available. At the end of the program's second page
(PDF format), under the exhibition session's Ground Equipment category, there's a listing for "Towards The Realization Of A Gundam (Advanced Personal Equipment System)". Though the form the exhibition will take is unclear, the news is generating buzz with the otaku crowd overseas.
