US Marine Corps is testing an early version of Robocop

January 30 The US Marine Corps Combat Center conducted the first Mobile Detection Assessment Response System (MDARS) mobile test at Camp Wilson. This remote-controlled vehicle provides external security and surveillance of the defensive perimeter.


US Marine Corps is testing an early version of Robocop

MDARS was originally developed for the US Army, but currently its potential as a defense system for manpower is viewed by the Marine Corps. The Marines are planning to use new equipment as part of their improved system of round-the-clock defense of military air bases.

MDARS has a variety of laser navigation systems, and a radar system to detect the presence of the enemy within the protective perimeter. Color and infrared cameras allow its operators to distinguish between friendly and enemy units.

All MDARS functions are controlled remotely from a computer, or are predefined by the operator for automatic operation.

The preset functions allow MDARS to follow the path the operator has set, move to a given point, or perform full patrols without human intervention.

In addition to the managed and automatic functions, MDARS can go into stealth mode, in which its engine shuts down and the system continuously scans the surrounding area. The batteries of the machine allow up to two hours in this mode, after which the engine must be started to recharge them.

According to the developers, the system can be optimized for the needs of the Marine Corps and is currently being improved. MDARS is currently not used as a permanent component of defensive operations, but the possibilities of its future combat use are being carefully studied.

        It seems to me that the whole secret in the creation of such robots is that, despite the fact that the US Army serves on a contract, there are few adequate fighters from these contractors. Problems all the time, drugs, drunkenness, rape, looting, and so on. It seems that the king is naked.

          The crawler robot from the company HDT Robotics can accurately shoot a machine gun at a target located up to 150 meters from it.
          During the demonstration, just in case, the machine gun was secured with chains to completely exclude the possibility of an accident, Vesti.Ru was informed

          Such a defender is good in which you need to tie a machine gun with chains.

          Here's another. Americans widely use combat robots in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2007, the US Army used about 5 robots in combat. Basically, these are Talon Swords robots. They can be equipped with manipulators for mine clearance, machine guns or machine guns for firing. Robots of this type are remotely controlled by humans. However, the US military has repeatedly reported cases where the robot for some time went out of control and did not act according to commands. And although it didn’t come to self-mutilation and homicide, nevertheless the robots were not recognized as reliable enough and should soon be replaced with new ones.
          In 2007, in South Africa, during a test, a robotic air defense system got out of control and began to shoot at people. The robot shot dead 9 people and wounded 14 before exhausting all its ammunition - 500 half-kilogram shells.
          Civilians and those are naughty.
          In July 2007, at a factory in Balst, in Stockholm, a worker tried to perform maintenance on an idle machine, which was mainly used to lift heavy stones. The worker thought he had unplugged the machine and walked calmly to the robot. But he suddenly activated and grabbed the victim by the head. The worker received serious damage.
          On December 19, 2008, the Japanese Shape-up Roller 2 foot massager killed a woman, then two more. The Japanese woman, the owner of the massager, removed the protective cover from him and the beads that hung on her neck got into the spinning rollers of the device. The woman died of suffocation. A few days later, two more Japanese died while using Shape-up Roller 2. The details of their deaths are unknown.

            In cars, too, sometimes the brakes fail (like some members of the forum), but no one suggests abandoning them. You would be better off marveling at the achievements of overseas engineers, but as usual, it comes down to banal, envious whining.

              Yes, the point is not about howling something. The idea was originally humane to remove a person from the battlefield, and ideally, let the cars fight. But there are two circumstances, the first is that these robots can turn from defenders to killers, and if the brakes fail in the car (and this is an extremely rare case, except for trucks), then a person can take measures to minimize losses if the battle with the robot will happen, then it will maximize losses. But this is not the worst thing, the worst thing is that human life is completely worthless, because people will no longer perceive all the horrors of war personally. Look at the network a lot of videos as helicopter pilots shoot people perceiving it not even as a murder but as an exciting computer game, that's what I mean

      skynet - also scary ????? yes nefiga !!! And the head is started ???? Well rides, well guards, well, probably they will teach to shoot. This crap can’t only think. In ancient times, people wanted to eat and caught mammoths, and so the mammoths were big, ran fast, looked in all directions, and they probably knew how to think, etc., but they were caught by people, and not vice versa. hence the conclusion that robots are playful and it makes no sense to compete with people. The machine shown in the pictures is incapacitated due to the use of microwave radiation (well, the dofig of an unscreened one sticks out) with a barrel of water dug by a hole with a bunch of g *** and inside, with a large log falling from above, rising from below etc. in general, if that is not applicable against us, in general, the truth is all the same, this crap can become a problem if it is stuffed with si4 and rammed somewhere .... but for this the aforementioned eye is wonderfully suitable))))

      Such "devices" are created with one purpose - to convince the world (primarily allies) of the overwhelming American military-technological superiority and economic power (they can throw mega money on all sorts of crap). And this crawler, most likely, will roll along the fence of some military base along a concrete path, under the supervision of a team of technicians from the manufacturer, somewhere in Hawaii.

Yes, and finally, his Taliban and not the Taliban with a club, in principle, can dunk the might and therefore we don’t need entitechnology in the market, let fools from all over the world spend loot and resources, and we will continue to laugh at all these robotic robots yes

      Where did I laugh at the robots? And where do you see the robot here? It will become a robot when it "learns" to independently respond appropriately to a rapidly changing environment.
      I will explain (very rudely):
      1. A ball flies into the protected area, a child comes for it. Actions of "gRobokop": Helps the child to find the ball (from a safe distance), says hello to the parents, patrols further.
      2. A bearded Taliban with an AK-47 climbs into the protected area. Actions of the "gRobokop": Attempts to detain, destroys if resisted, draws up and sends a report to the management.
      3. An unfriendly tank battalion wanders into the protected area. Actions of "gRobokop": Raise the alarm, stall and continue observation or quickly dump.
      And all this should be without the participation of the operator. This "device" is, roughly speaking, movable with video cameras, sometimes with software control. hi

    The body does not matter if the brain is dead. It makes no sense to create a perfect body without triggering artificial intelligence.
    It is not necessary to create a human brain - a wolf (dog) can determine what is in a person’s hands, preempt the victim’s trajectory, sense the moment of attack, attack together with other individuals, retreat to a safe distance if necessary, commit suicide if necessary (puppies ) and, if necessary, distinguish a dangerous alien from his own (dog). Moreover, he needs only basic principles of communication, does not need complex human morality / knowledge, does not need anything - only basic principles by which he determines that he is a hedgehog, and this is a buffalo, and this is a stone, and this is his soldier.

    Well, or shove the human brain into this miracle of technology and try to bring interfaces. Just get a bunch of iron that philosophizes, instead of beating (an example of a robocop).

      The more complex the system, the less reliable it is in itself and is more expensive. As a result, the means of destruction of such systems can be significantly cheaper if such competition is struck by striking and protective means. There is no 100% guarantee that the enemy in secret has the means to intercept control, because this takes place in real life in the case of UAVs, right ?! The United States is betting on robotic unmanned systems and it is quite shining for them to end up in a deplorable situation ...
      It is not difficult to notice that in the Soviet army there was a tendency to use the simplest systems — wire, mechanical, etc.
      After all, you can take any example - even from the same operating systems, vulnerabilities of which are found thousands and each of them allows you to take control ...
      And yet ... You can bomb a couple of leading manufacturers of electronics and that's it ... Then you can’t quickly raise such a production ... But it’s easier to make forks ...
