The US Army is going to install anti-tank systems and air defense systems on robotic combat vehicles

The US Army is puzzled by equipping the latest robotic combat vehicles with anti-tank weapons, with the help of which the US military expects to destroy enemy armored vehicles. The National Interest recently reported that the US Army has demonstrated the capabilities of robotic vehicles equipped with Javelin anti-tank missiles.

As the director of Army Futures Command, Major General Ross Coffman, noted, the military fired from anti-tank missile systems, testing the capabilities of robotic combat vehicles, as well as analyzing their safety in the face of a potential collision with armored vehicles of a potential enemy.

Also, the US military claims that it will use artificial intelligence more actively. According to the US Armed Forces Command, the use of artificial intelligence will allow the machines to quickly move away from the enemy tanksas robotic platforms are lighter than most main battle tanks used in modern armies. At the same time, the military clarifies that all decisions regarding the use of lethal weaponswill continue to be adopted by humans, not artificial intelligence.

In addition to anti-tank systems, air defense (air defense) equipment can also be installed on robotic vehicles, including a modern set of sensors for monitoring targets at long distances. With the help of an advanced computing system, the platform will be able to process incoming information, after which the military will make appropriate decisions.

If robotic vehicles are integrated with the Hellfire or Stinger anti-aircraft missile systems, they will be able to carry out the tasks of the army's air defense, including the fight against unmanned aerial vehicles, which are now increasingly used in conventional combined arms combat.

    It's fantastic. Americans are 30 years ahead of the rest of the world

      it's sarcasm?
      so such complexes have already been adopted by the Russian Federation. nuda .. another 30 years and possibly catch up with Russia and China .. if the financial crisis does not happen wassat

      In some ways, yes, but here ... Back in the USSR, air defense systems have actually become full-fledged robots, and the fact that the commander of the crew had to give the go-ahead for the use of weapons was actually just a formality

    An illustrative photo of a robotic pribluda from the article somehow reminded me of WALL-E, if you look at this thing full-face ...

      Perhaps such a complex can only work with the support of external control, that is, it will receive commands to take some position, receive information about the air situation and target parameters, even the radar is not visible in the picture, and that box next to the gun looks like for cartridges.

        and in the photo a combat vehicle air defense missile system or anti-tank guided missile system?

        In the photo - one of the options for the platform under the EMAV program of the United States Marine Corps on tests

        Yes, like bae, it's written here quite clearly and unambiguously
        decisions regarding the use of lethal weapons will continue to be made by humans

      "Robotic pribluda" - is it from the category of "pregnant penguin" and "we have a scout, they have a spy"?
      Envy is a bad feeling

        Yes, I do not envy at all ... These robots-shmarobots from the word "absolutely" on the drum somehow. My military specialty is not robotized - AKS, RD and "one march in a column" ... It is they, with the robots, let them envy me. I am a man in a blue beret, a soldier of my country. Who is he without a robot? The snot is overpowering, in childhood it was underplayed in computer "shooters". And we have "nerds" for their robots, no dumber.

    install anti-tank systems and air defense systems on robotic combat vehicles
    an absolutely logical step in the development of unmanned systems, especially since there are already precedents

    And if they don’t? belay
    What they just don't come up with, just not to get into a mess ...

    Judging by the photo, are the tracks on the car rubber-metal? In the event of a mine explosion, will these "robots" change everything themselves?
    There is such a machine in the Russian army:

    Probably, the rivalry between the "American robot" and the Russian "semi-automatic complex" will take place in a "hot", unfriendly atmosphere ...

      And if a Humvee or Bradley is blown up, in addition to replacing tracks / wheels, it may also be necessary to bury the crew, which is completely out of the question. For that, in general, the whole garden. This is a self-running stroller for transporting heavy loads in a dangerous clearing.

    They just can, they have a boom in drone technologies and it. They are experimenting with might and main, something will take off and on land, like the raptor took off at one time and gave birth to offspring.

    To that everything goes ... more automation in the combat process, changes in tactics will follow and ... with strategy, it is still early, before the troops are saturated with such equipment in a significant amount, these will be auxiliary elements.
    By the way, who is the most, the most, ahead of the whole planet ... for how many years there, the answer is not obvious.
    Everyone who could have already taken care of ... or maybe not only striped ones.

    It will turn out to be a problematic machine for tanks. It will be much more difficult to detect it in time than an enemy tank. And to fight it with a tank gun at the launch distance of Javelin does not seem an easy task.

      The calculation of the ATGM is also not an easy target for a tank and without pilot pilots and barging laughing ammunition, the tank has many opponents, so the next move is tanks without a crew.

    Nothing special.
    We attached wheels / tracks to a heavy piece of iron, so as not to carry it on the hump, and not to be exposed to fire.
    Quite an obvious idea.

    Ours seem to be using similar platforms with varying success, but apart from criticism, little is heard (with the exception of demining robots), let's see what the Americans are not fighting.

    So late. Our Torahs and Shells can work in a fully automatic mode. And ATGM "Kornet" is on the robot "Uran-9".

    Automation yes. Today they make drones that automatically destroy other drones. And we have and the USA has Coyote
    https://naukatehnika.com/coyote-unichtozhaet-dronyi.-video-ot-raytheon.html
    Raytheon Missiles & Defense has partnered with the US Army Fire and Operations Administration to demonstrate some counter-unmanned aerial systems (UAV) capabilities during a 10-day summer test. The tests used variants of Coyote interceptors with KuRFS precision targeting radar and Ku-720 mobile radar to detect and destroy all swarms of drones, which differ in size and range, "the company said.

    Given the obvious fact that the United States is lagging behind Russia in the field of electronic warfare, I highly doubt the combat systems of robots ... The data transmission system is the most important part here.
