2008 release of Military Ground Robots

Research And Markets : 24 January, 2008  (New Product)
Extensive publication covers the use of military robots, their technology and deployment.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of "Military Ground Robots 2008" to their offering.

Robots are automating military ground systems, permitting vital protection of soldiers and people in the field, creating the possibility of reduced fatalities. Mobile robotics operate independently of the operator.
What is good for a robotic unmanned ground vehicle is also good for a robotic vacuum and lawn mower. Multiple technological, cultural, political and market forces share a quantum singularity that has brought mobile robotics to the point where robots are useful to every arm of the military services. This is a phenomenon that will have a major impact on the way we run the military and police societies. Use of remote-control toys in Iraq started as improvised robots to check out possible roadside bombs. There has since been a flurry of activity on the robotic explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) front. Deliveries of smaller and cheaper MARCBOTs and BomBots are underway.

The emergence of a market for intelligent, mobile robots for use in homes presents many opportunities. Units used in homes are also useful in workplaces and public spaces, airports, under the sea, and on the battlefield creating synergies creating economies of scale that make systems more useful and inexpensive in all the various industry segments impacted.

The trio handle M249s, are remotely controlled by a soldier through a terminal. The whereabouts and missions remain classified. Armed machines were reportedly designed to handle 'high risk' combat scenarios if necessary. There is no record of a SWORD firing its weapon, but considering that each of these devices can potentially remove a human from harm. The full blown platoons are being unleashed when finances allow.

Similar technology is used to actuate the disparate robot types. Core robotics research and advances in robotic technology can be applied across a variety of robotic form factors and robotic functionality. Advances feed on and off of each other. With each new round of innovation, a type of technological cross pollination occurs that improves existing robotic platforms and opens up other avenues where intelligent mobile robots can be employed, effectively creating new markets. Roboticists are more advanced in their training and in the tools available to create units. Military robots have evolved from units used in the field to manage different situations that arise. Robots save lives.
