US Military Robotics take some Big Strides this Week
I love military hardware and history. Some big news came out this week on advancements in robotics and drone warfare. This week an aerial drone successfully landed on an aircraft carrier for the first time and and America’s most advanced human looking robot was revealed.
Drone and robot use has increased dramatically and will be a major force in our military in as soon as the next few years.
Here is a look at the latest tech:
“The X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) demonstrator completed its first carrier-based arrested landing on board USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) off the coast of Virginia July 10.”
And meet Atlas, one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever built, created by Boston Dynamics:
Stick some armor plate on that guy and give him a couple Squad Automatic Weapons or some AA-12 automatic shotguns and he would look pretty ferocious!
