They can reward any extraordinary power. A special on-board microcomputer with a sensory system tracks the movements of a soldier and transmits information to the exoskeleton, which increases human capabilities with the help of motors. The military becomes incredibly resilient, turning almost into cyborgs. For example, the device will help to transfer in hands up to 90 kilograms of cargo over a distance of 20 kilometers.
While the novelty is not used in combat, and is used in test mode. Tests will allow you to understand how HULC affects the state of the fighters, according to a press release from the company LockheedMartin, which is engaged in this project. (The video on YouTube was uploaded by the user LockheedMartinVideos.)
The development of exoskeletons has long been conducted not only in the United States, but also in other countries, including Russia. As the program "Review" on NTV, in Russia, the production of frameworks for supermen is conducted in strict secrecy, the developers do not report on the detailed design and adaptation capabilities.
There is even an acceleration mode in which you can run for a short time at a speed of 10 miles per hour (~ 17 km / h)
"On-board" computers control the movement of the exoskeleton in accordance with the movement of the soldier
The suit maintains its own weight so that the owner does not experience additional load.
On one charge, the suit allows you to carry up to 200 pounds over a distance of 12.4 miles (90 kg per 20 km).
The suit is designed so that parts can be replaced in the field
Commanders assess whether HULC helps soldiers use less energy than without it.
If the tests are successful, the next step will be testing under conditions simulating combat conditions.
Having a titanium frame, heavy weight is transmitted directly to the body of the exoskeleton
The ability to carry cargo remains even when the costume runs out of energy.
Lockheed engineers made an image of the suit, which is suitable for police special forces
Perhaps the exoskeleton will be used for civilian loading loads, as well as to help paralyzed walk again
