In Russia, developed an exoskeleton for the sapper

The company "Special equipment and communications" of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation proposed its development - an exoskeleton for explosives, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.




The individual explosion-protection complex of a mine clearance engineer weighs about 60 kg. In such equipment, it is very difficult for an ordinary person to survive for a long time.

“Now, thanks to the exoskeleton, the explosive technician is able to work in his armor up to 12 hours. Actually, for this purpose the construction is intended - to increase many times the physical strength of a person, the ability to lift tens of times greater weights, to transfer literally inhuman loads. The exoskeleton copies in a certain sense the structure of a person and helps to make certain movements, ”said the company representatives.

On the side of the nape in the complex is installed emphasis-headrest. “It so happens that armor protection saves from the fragments, but alas from the shock wave. With excessive pressure, which instantly occurs at the time of the explosion, the head can drastically throw back. The head restraint also limits this sudden movement of the head, ”the developers explained.

In addition, the protection of the cervical vertebrae and knees. The rigid back of the exoskeleton will save the spine when falling from a blast wave.

According to the newspaper, the design is almost ready for real use.

    With excess pressure, which instantly occurs at the time of the explosion, the head can be sharply thrown back. This sharp head movement of the headrest limits

    A bump on the back of the head is better than a fracture of the cervical vertebrae. I am glad that the developers are trying to foresee and level all the damaging factors of explosive devices.

        Already there is a sapper helmet in the armor - almost a helmet, but not tight.

        . But if you put such an infantryman on top and an assault armor set on top.

        no It will not work NOW, it’s normal for a sapper to move especially fast and long-distance. In order to really make a combat suit for infantry, the very smallness is not enough - a small-sized, but powerful source of power for drives and other paraphernalia.

          Will not be. If you develop such a source for electric drives, its power is just enough to create ultra-small and ultra-powerful bombs. There will already be no time for drives, on what subject does a man have a blaster, if he can simply burn out half of the battlefield with the blaster power source? Throw out a dozen of these sources with at least something, even with a ballistic, and broads ...
          New physics is needed, most likely something is not electric. And here even approaches are not visible, all-all modern science is not occupied by discoveries but by closures. All voices explain again and again what is impossible. Nothing is allowed. Nothing will come of it, nothing will come of it.
          So we won’t have all of these “combat suits” ... or maybe that’s good. Very creepy toys could come out.

    Good thing, right. But if you put such an infantryman on top and an assault armor set on top. Imperial attack aircraft directly obtained in a modern variation :)

      Still, it will combine well with this) to distribute the load evenly and then in the heavy armor it will be possible to run for hours.

    It's time, but a lot of time passes from development to launch in the series.

    And how does that help? Minesweeper will quickly brainwash than hit the back of the head.

      The question is of course interesting. IMHO still conducted tests on the gifted, who have nothing to scatter lol

      And everything that a sapper neutralizes has 10-20 kg in TNT equivalent? Explosive objects are also 10 g and 50 g and 100 g.

    Over time, and not only in sapper business, it will be possible to apply it. Our specialists will come up with! And so practically Robocop can turn out winked

    what what Yeah ... that's practically all that can be said of interest about the latest development request Thank you for the article!!!! fellow crying

    Appointment for sappers, apparently, from the fact that the exoskeleton is not autonomous

      Most likely there is no power supply - just a cable system for even load distribution. Without servos and artificial muscles. Until they come up with an autonomous power source of sufficient capacity and power, this kind of exoskeleton is the only one that can be realized.

    I wonder what this exoskeleton works on. Batteries or cable? Until the nutritional problem is resolved, one can only dream of imperial stormtroopers. In general, you can combine a breastplate with a helmet like suits and you will not need to screw various dubious head restraints

    They showed something like this from the side ... But how it will look in front is unclear. Specialists know better.

    And where does the exoskeleton? This is just protection of the back and neck, where is the exoskeleton?

    Well! this is really good news, a sapper in the army is the most dangerous service, and the more such sets will be delivered to our troops, the more efficient our sappers will operate.
