Video: AMAZING U.S. AIR FORCE MILITARY ROBOT DOG YOU MUST SEE! United States’ Tyndall Air Force Base is integrating robot dogs from Ghost Robotics for security and surveillance of the base. The base, which is located 12 miles east of Panama City, Florida, is the home to the 325th Security Forces Squadron and is the first base to use the technology for enhanced security patrolling. Air Force will test capabilities of robots at Tyndall base, results of which can influence the decision for a wider implementation of robot dogs across other bases. Although the 100-pound robot dogs can be controlled with a remote, they will operate autonomously around the base for security and have the ability to turn themselves right side up if they are knocked over. The robot dogs can run for an extended period of time, and a single charge will support surveillance distance of 7.5 miles. The robots will have access to wireless charging doghouses to ensure easy charging. The robot dogs are capable of handling tasks such as remote inspection, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, mapping, distributed communications and persistent security. The robotic technology in combination with other technological innovations is expected to replace and upgrade the capabilities of traditional static defense equipment. According to Ghost Robotics CEO Jiren Parikh, the robot dogs can cover 7.5 feet per second, which is equivalent to covering the length of a football field in about 40 seconds. The company is aiming to enhance its performance to 10 feet per second. Ghost [More]
“Killer Robots” may seem far fetched, but as @AlexGatopoulos explains, the use of autonomous machines and other military applications of artificial intelligence are a growing reality of modern warfare.
