  1. USA always tried to make the world safe from terrorism and always face them in front. USA is good on its place. Don't care what terrorism supporter says.

  2. the first thing to take out is the Honda generator, then the gunner,run over,grab the fifty..if I was a terrorist,just sayin..

  3. Nice ! :O

    But what is the name of the machinegun on the UGV ? I know this an M2 but the barrel is strange, anyone know the name of this variant ? (I see this model on Stryker too)


  4. I prefer more, the Russian robots, those things are a beast, 30 mm cannon, ATAKA anti-tank missiles and a coaxial machinegun. Those things burn..

  5. Yet more American waste…spending billions on this instead of pursuing welfare and happiness for its own people.
    Oh and btw, good job on building those buggies…One blast, many casualties…
    Good job murica

  6. What a fascinating look into the future of warfare. I noticed that they cut out some of the audio right as a soldier was going into details on these systems. lol! Nice OpSec on the editors part.
    Still I'm curious why they had human soldiers gunning on the UGV's mounting the M2 .50 cal MG's. While it's nice to have the ability for manual control of the system, ideally a two-man team of remote operators should work as a team driving and gunning.

    As some people pointed out, certainly these could be knocked out easily by RPG's, however if costs can be brought down to a bare minimum, they would be far cheaper than the cost of a soldier.

    It's true however that the Russians are FAR ahead in this area as they have developed small cameras and sensors able to track vehicles and human beings autonomously as can be seen on their T-14 demonstrations. The T-14 is designed, btw, to operate as a UGV depending on the ECM environment.

    What is not stated here or in most public forums is that ECM can render all of these systems useless. For that reason both Russia and the U.S. are rushing development of truly autonomous systems that do not need ANY human operator in situations where they are essentially sent into free-fire zones far from friendly troops (and hopefully civilians). Current prototypes have sensors to detect muzzle flash, dust/smoke puffs, incoming small arms fire, human heat signatures, advanced motion detection, and advanced AI IFF.

    As such the technology is almost there. But with every technology comes counter-measures. The Iranians for example, already hacked into and captured one of our most sophisticated stealth UAV's. If Iran can do that, you can be assured that their allies in Russia can do this as Russia has some of the best hackers in the world.
    Even with autonomous systems, there will be remote codes and BLUFOR transmitters that provide the potential of being hacked into especially if one is damaged, captured, and analyzed by the enemy.

    As such encryption modules will have to be changed daily and will have to include a vast range of different forms of encryption that leave no pattern. The modules themselves should likewise be of different types with a range of interfaces so as to keep an enemy guessing which one is being used. This can include sensors that pickup audio cues to activate communications with a ground station. Secondary comms units can also equip the unit along with fail safe's that cause a unit to self-destruct with a small explosive charge.

    So the challenges are immense and we should not kid ourselves that these will fully replace humans until the AI becomes near-fool proof regarding IFF.
    Likewise BLUFOR tracking systems, need to be highly modular with daily code changes along with the ability to change the codes immediately if a BLUFOR soldier is captured and his tracker is compromised.

  7. That roller with the gun mounted on it looks cool but, I don't know about the gas looking container in front of it?

  8. They need to find a way to dampen the sound, a guided missile would take these things out a mile away.

  9. Lmao, just spray it with water. Or do as we did back in my country, blow these fuckers and their machinery to pieces with $10 IEDS.

  10. With this current operational design, I suppose these robots could take the place of a heavy weapons section, carrying fiddys, mortars, and ammo. All the operators need to do are range cards and firing.

  11. yea the end is definitely in site. I'm sure there already working on automatic enemy detection/engaging technology.
