The US Army is looking for robots for medical assistance to soldiers and for the evacuation of the wounded

The US Department of Defense intends to soon introduce various medical robots into the US Army units. As transmits "NPlus1"The US Army Medical Research and Development Command has requested information about robots that could be used for medical purposes.


According to a published request, the US military will consider various proposals that will contain information about robots of varying degrees of autonomy. The main condition - this robot can be used in the framework of emergency medical assistance to fighters and for the evacuation of the wounded. Models of various classes will be accepted for consideration, including unmanned aerial vehicles, ground-based robots and robotic craft.

Another condition is that the robot presented must be able to work together with people, including following a human-operated device, and provide support to physicians. A medical robot must also have a set of tools for medical diagnosis.

It is indicated that the use of robotic systems of various classes can significantly reduce the load on the soldiers, as well as reduce losses among personnel. Transported robotic platforms will help accelerate the delivery of the wounded from the battlefield to medical posts and hospitals.

Earlier it was reported that in the United States tested a helicopter-type drone Dragonfly Pictures DP-14 Hawk, developed specifically for the delivery of ammunition and the transport of the wounded.

The DP-14 unmanned helicopter is built in a longitudinal pattern with two rotors. In the same way, for example, the American heavy transport helicopter CH-47 Chinook was designed. The mass of DP-14 is 408 kilograms. The device, equipped with a turboshaft engine, can carry loads weighing up to 195 kilograms. The duration of its flight is 2,4 hours. The volume of the transport compartment of the DP-14 is 0,7 cubic meters; It can fit one person.

Dragonfly Pictures DP-14 is capable of speeds up to 105 nodes (about 195 kilometers per hour and fly at altitudes up to 4,6 thousands of meters. The device is expected to be able to fly fully offline.

    It will be cool if his control is intercepted!

      And in my opinion this is a depreciation of the life of a simple fighter in the United States, when experienced pilots and expensive aircraft and higher fuel consumption do not want to spend on it! Well and yet, from claustrophobia you can die in such a small coffin, as in the photo)))

          In the history of military drones, interception was carried out only by distorting GPS signals - the drone incorrectly determined its coordinates, circled in one place until the fuel ran out. A counteraction to this has already been found - scanning the terrain, and determining coordinates from satellite images, and not GPS signals. Plus more secure, directional GPS receivers.
          All other cases of interception - UAVs were not military, the signal was not encrypted.

          Not. Unmanned aerial vehicles, unlike live pilots, can be much larger. Moreover, it can be sent to where it is better not to send the living - it will not take the wounded, so at least he will bring medicines.
          Robots will inevitably be introduced both in everyday life and in the army. And there’s no getting around it.

        I don’t know why they slammed the minus for you, but I also thought that I wouldn’t really want to roll it from above when they started firing at it, but there was no return fire.

          Would you rather just die of bleeding without a chance of salvation at all? I think in reality you would be the first in line to him

            The second person for the evening was naughty on the site. If anyone else knew these people, and what I did to them.
            I don’t really like flying, because I would not be the first to stand in such a box. Is it so intelligible?

        Of course there is, especially if his fighters against American imperialism have partially processed minced meat, maybe he has a spinal injury in general.
        The hatch should be in the nose one more to push it on a stretcher and side as in the photo to connect all the garbage.

          The wounded are generally laid on a stretcher. And logically, just feet forward to connect the entire system.

                Yes, even in proportions it can be seen that they won’t fit, because the stretcher is longer than a person.

            Moreover, the most advanced ones are even worn on the stretcher with their feet forward, so that the rear porter controls the wounded person’s face (consciousness, breathing, throbbing on the neck).

              A physician should not hold on to a stretcher, he already has something to do.

    When I was a student at a construction institute, an old professor told us that in 60, at the time of the craze for robotics, cybernetics and automation, there was an attempt to create a plasterer robot ....
    According to the professor, a kind of box with a manipulator, grater and sleeves for supplying a solution. And it seems they even did it ... But then they calculated that during the time they would bring this robot, install it, configure it, reconfigure it .... In general, two plasterers will finish and paint the whole house!) laughing
    So, I think, it’s too early for robots to trust human life, since they didn’t even do the plasterer!

      They brought a car, so that free places in hotels counted. And the American computer sits and wildly heats a poorly adapted room, all covered in lights, and won’t figure out who it will freely inform him of free places. Well this is all the sweets, all the bouquets, all the power to take and give the bad car. So he has long been taking from his finger and sends to the ceiling. The machine itself already realized that no one needs it, but snaps, thunders, pretends to be a wild concern, like all that no one needs.

    Search and evacuation of the wounded depends on who left the battlefield. Do you agree?
    But the ammunition can already be accurately thrown into the yard.
