US Military Is Working On Exoskeleton Technology For Soldiers

The U.S military is working with Sarcos Robotics to develop an exoskeleton suit that could help enhance their soldiers.

It is safe to assume that most of you have been fantasizing about laying your hands on one of those technologies of Tony Stark. And that sweet suit of iron man is the most desirable technology in comics and popular these days.

The Guardian™  XO exoskeleton from Sarcos Robotics may be the first step toward making iron man suit a reality. As of right now, this exoskeleton can help the soldiers to be stronger, move faster, and be safer.

There have been many attempts in the past to create a technology of the same type in different industrial sectors. But then so far, the best we have got is from Sarcos Robotics that looks the most like iron man suit. Sarcos Robotics is one of the leading company globally in term of robot system developments. So instead of developing a robot to replace completely our work-loads. The company believes in using robotic technologies to increase the capability of humans.

The United States Special Operations Command recently has signed a contract with Sarcos Robotics for a mass production version of The Guardian™ XO technology. Just like in those Ripley Matrix movies, XO is an autonomously powered, full-body robotic exoskeleton.

Increase Power

This new exoskeleton technology is based on the earlier prototype of Sarcos Robotics. This technology has been recognized worldwide for its functionality and innovative design. To summarize,  Guardian™ XO is a suit that will help enhance tremendously endurance and strength of the person wearing it. While it also allows that person to move freely without any restrictions.

From our source, the suit will help the wearer to lift a heavy object of up to 90kg without the usual strain and exertion. The exoskeleton suit is made out of advanced materials with many algorithms and sensors.

This technology outside of its clear usage in transportation. But it also has a lot of applications in military, manufacturing and industrial industries.

The Contract

Recently, we also have the news that Sarcos Robotics has also partnered up with U.S Air Force and U.S Navy to develop the suit. With the fun of $175 million for R&D, the company will ensure the efficiency, intuitiveness, and safety of the exoskeleton.
