Creation of a special exoskeleton for security officials has begun in Russia

In Russia, the creation of a special exoskeleton for security forces has begun, capable of significantly lightening the weight of a heavy armored shield during an assault. About this in an interview with RIA News said Deputy Director of the company-developer of this technology "Rostec-Trusted Platforms - Robotic Systems" Maxim Skokov.


As Skokov explained, the company has already developed several variants of experimental samples of an exoskeleton called the Shieldik. The development has already become interested in law enforcement agencies, whose fighters are involved in military operations, namely in the National Guard, the FSO and the FSB.

In the special forces during the assault there is an operative carrying a large armored shield in front of him, he covers himself and his comrades walking behind with it. His task is to move slowly, call fire on himself and protect other special forces. The weight of such a shield can reach up to 45 kilograms, the exoskeleton "Shield" allows to reduce this load

- said the deputy director of the company.

Skokov did not give details of the development. Most likely, the developed exoskeleton does not have power sources, but distributes the load from the shield due to its design.

    It is high time! A VERY useful thing in our time.

      I absolutely agree that sometimes it is simply necessary for assault units! The time will soon come for full-fledged exoskeletons. By the way, for Civilian use - a huge niche, I personally would have bought it myself.

    Most likely this "Shield" will resemble the exoskeleton used by video operators.

      Hardly - this should have legs (otherwise, what's the use of it?). It would also be nice if you could hold it in a stable position with one hand.

        Why hardly? Why should there be legs? Videographers are only "hands" holding the equipment. How is the shield fundamentally different? In addition, without an exoskeleton, a specially trained comrade also does not attach it to his feet. Managed by hands somehow.

          Well, the operator's equipment has its own specifics: it is somewhat lighter, you cannot be killed on the spot, and the first place is the smoothness of the movement, which at the moment is unattainable for any exoskeletons with legs. The shield bearer does not really need it, but reducing the load to reduce leg fatigue and save joints from occupational diseases is very useful.
          Speaking of Tychus Findlay wassat you can also hang additional protection on mechanical legs (hips, knees, shins - which is needed depending on the weight of the shield), and thanks to them, the armor of the shield itself can be increased.

    A necessary and useful thing. And if they also equip them with servos - even if the power supply is enough for 15 minutes, it's class! Most of these operations will not last longer ...

      By the way - yes, I absolutely agree. The trouble with exoskeletons is the lack of compact power supplies, but under a relatively short assault time, it is quite possible to make such, moreover, using existing technologies

        At the time of the assault, in a small building you can even with a cable behind your back. To, if anything, pull out the fighter for that cable.

    And why ? The assaults at the special forces last minutes, and the existing power sources are quite enough to power the drives in a short time. This is not an exoskeleton for the army, where the problem is to operate such devices only in batteries, which cannot yet provide the functioning of at least half a day of active actions.

      Usually infantry now walk next to vehicles or ride them, which can safely charge batteries.
      Motorized riflemen arrived, captured the city, and to charge their cars.
