In the US, developed a "smart" exoskeleton with liquid armor

130
The TALOS lightweight robotic exoskeleton, developed for the special forces of the US Armed Forces, will be presented in 2018 g, reports Popular Mechanics.



“The uniqueness of the military exoskeleton is the use of“ smart ”materials that will allow you to control body temperature, heart rate and the level of water content in the special forces body. The TALOS suit should provide ballistic protection of the entire surface of the body, have low power consumption, low visibility, a system of all-round vision and night vision, and even have everything necessary to provide medical care for injuries. ”
Says the article.

In addition, the exoskeleton will have constant access to the Internet and provide the soldier with relevant information using the “Augmented Reality Technology”.

It is noted that "electric drives built into TALOS will help the fighters to maintain their strength longer and less tired of physical exertion."



But the main "chip" will be the so-called "Liquid ceramic armor."

"Unlike the development of the Polish Moratex Security Technology Institute based on the secret non-Newtonian fluid, the American armor, which scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are working on, will be some kind of liquid that can instantly harden when exposed to electric current," the newspaper writes.

Such famous companies as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and even Adidas are also involved in the project.

“However, many experts are extremely skeptical about the Pentagon’s project, noting that many items from the technical specifications are simply not feasible in the next decade due to the lack of necessary technologies, for example, compact and light power sources,” concludes the resource.

          And I liked that the exoskeleton provides for the Internet. Is it so that the fighters could play "tanks"? But seriously, will the US Department of Defense pay for the Internet operators of the country they are attacking? Or will it be satellite internet? Expensive "tanks" will then turn out, however!

        Absolutely right! With innovative developments of a certain fundamental level, the final task may or may not be fulfilled, but along the way, a mass of previously not obvious and discoveries and new innovative directions may surface. Therefore, it is now increasingly heard that priority is given to developments with a deep development potential.

      One question: "Is there a diaper in the system to collect fluid from a fighter?"

      It is necessary to ask our yes?
      A new type of protection has been created at the Research Institute "Steel" - liquid armor. Experiments on the creation of a new type of protective coating based on nanotechnology, which is called "liquid armor", have yielded positive results.

      This was announced by the official representative of the institute Yevgeny Chistyakov at the exhibition of security means "Interpolitech" taking place in Moscow.

      Chistyakov explained that we are talking about experiments with a gel-like protective coating, which hardens significantly upon a strong impact. At the same time, he noted that large research centers have been dealing with this problem for a long time in the United States, "but so far there is no real result."

      the British are also engaged in cutting
      Although the new substance is classified, many experts believe that we are talking about a slightly modified special d3o gel, which was tested in Britain last year. Then it was announced the creation of a substance that reduces kinetic energy when hit by a bullet or a fragment. To begin with, they were going to introduce it into the production of soldier helmets, and then bulletproof vests.

      Liquid armor is a mixture of solid nanoparticles with non-volatile liquid. At first it was supposed to use the new product as an additional layer, a kind of lining for body armor. But soon scientists came to the conclusion that the tissue itself can be directly impregnated with this filler.

      Under normal conditions, liquid armor does not manifest itself in any way. Clothing remains flexible without restricting movement. But with a sharp energy impact, for example, when a bullet hits or hit with a dagger, the nanoparticles become active and, bonding to each other, create an ultra-strong film. Moreover, the formation of a new structure occurs instantly, in less than one millisecond after the impact. It is significant that in this case all the impact energy is no longer focused on the tip of the bullet or knife, but is distributed evenly over a significant area of ​​the hardened tissue.

      Well, I understand everything, but at once it’s so indiscriminate to blame ... Personally, I like comments much more when people ask themselves a question like
      Quote: Pavel Tsybay

      But we are also working on an exoskeleton and the exoskeleton itself can work at the right time when the fighter needs help and the exoskeleton does not do all the work for a person, but should facilitate that is, this is an auxiliary element for today.

        Apparently it is worth reminding many that with a certain method of exposure - mechanical or email. by a magnetic impulse, liquid armor itself becomes a source of destructive force. Therefore, fluids with a more "volatile" response to impulse can be more effective as armor than "Newtonian fluids". Therefore, the answers are quite simple how to destroy this armor.

      Americans have been working in this direction for a long time. And they have results, and they also have promising power sources. And we, as always, have been working on anthological developments with bare enthusiasm. We can laugh for a long time, but so far we are in deep ... high technology.
      And this is ... not casual, stupidly they are not allowed to carry out serious development at the state level. For a long time it was possible to get the country out of oil but nobody needs it.

        I’ll simply tell you that the Americans have a promising power source for a certain level of potential, further development. But! They do not have what can really be a breakthrough into the future. I will explain why. Their development is based on the use of new materials, and real prospects are based on the model of creating a power source based on the controlled density of magnetic force flows. I recall that electrical processes are derivatives of magnetic force processes. Therefore, theoretically, on completely simple materials, you can create a device with an incredible density of magnetic fluxes. And I note that with such important properties that they are completely safe from breakdown to an external source of polarization.

    I would not be so categorical and skeptical about this news. Perhaps soon or not soon it will be necessary to introduce such innovations and technologies into life, and they will be able to save the lives of many fighters. It remains to solve the problem of nutrition of the exoskeleton and then we can talk about practical application. And whoever said that, but the Americans in the means of protecting their fighters are ahead and they need to catch up and overtake.

          Yes, it's not very difficult there. If the reflected signal contains harmonics of the probing frequency, then there are semiconductors, which means there is some kind of electronic device, and it's time to make broads. This is, if very briefly. The same principle as when searching for "bugs". More difficult of course than a conventional fuse ...

    Since servos consume a lot more power than mobile phones, batteries should be more impressive. In any case, a question arises. What happens when the power supply runs out of charge or fails? Is the soldier throwing secret and expensive ammunition? Or drags it on itself as additional weight? And if, at the moment when the current is gone, a person is dragging some kind of weight? For fans of computer games like "Stalker" who are preparing to object to me, that a trained fighter can do a lot, I can quote the words of a friend whom I helped to heap a backpack with five hundred hunting cartridges on his back:
    “I must note,” he said, “that in the topic of carrying weights, the game“ Stalker ”is false. I wonder if I can walk along the platform to the desired carriage without breaking my back?”))

Recently, electronic warfare has been shrouded in such an aura of mystery and omnipotence, there are so many tales and rumors (moreover, we often hear them from officials) that it seems as soon as you turn it on and that's it - the engines are dead, the gunpowder is off, the batteries are dead, the computers are dead.

    will be a kind of liquid that can instantly harden when exposed to electric current

    There was an idea of ​​compaction under the influence of the kinetic energy of a bullet, to see, it turned out to be more difficult than they thought. Now this. Probably, current compaction is faster. And after that, the hardened area of ​​the armor remains? And if there are multiple hits?

    Exoskeletons are the future. True, so far the high cost. Plus the limited use. If special forces are used, the suit will at least have to be resistant to pollution and wear. And it is desirable not to have such "gaps" between the parts of the armor, because a wounded enemy fighter in an exoskeleton is a tidbit for any army.

    There are prospects for booking - not liquid armor, so different -
    Metal foams are a very light and surprisingly strong material. So strong that it can even stop an armor-piercing bullet, turning it into dust in a collision.


    The experiment was conducted by researchers from the University of North Carolina under the guidance of Avsane Rabiei, a professor of aircraft and rocket science. Scientists fired an armor-piercing bullet of 7,62 mm caliber in a piece of metal foam. The results surprised even the scientists themselves.


    “We were able to stop the bullet with material less than 2,5 cm thick, while the recess in the place where the bullet hit was less than 8 mm deep. For example, according to the standards of the National Institute of Justice, the armor is considered good, even if after getting into it there remains a recess of 44 mm depth, ”says Rabiei himself.


    At the same time, metal foam can be made in many different ways. Some pass hot gas through molten metal, others pour blanks using hollow metal spheres to give voids material.


    In addition to the increased strength according to the professor’s research, composite metal foams effectively protect against x-rays and gamma rays, as well as from neutron radiation. They also withstand fire and heat twice as good as the metals from which they are made.

    and again only a few adequate comments in the midst of an endless stream of giggling capri-wrestling turbopatriots.

    if the only problem is the power supply, then this is not a big problem. solvable anyway. for example, there is already a technology that allows the heat of the human body to be transformed into electrical energy. entirely, of course, due to it, such an exoskeleton is unlikely to be able to work, but in combination with rechargeable batteries and some "dynamos" (generating energy when walking, for example) it can be quite a working thing.

    The mockery of this direction of equipment development is at least not smart. The same "Ratnik" is a living example of the movement of Russian military thought in this direction. but this concept is of course a much more advanced version. Let's hope that our scientific minds also eat bread for nothing, and in this direction we are not lagging behind the amers.

    All these exoskeletons suck. My friend in Novosibirsk is working in some kind of closed sharashka. So, he came to visit the May holidays. So, he kept telling me that they are working on polymers or biopolymers capable of stretching and contracting from small electrical impulses like the muscles of a person. Moreover, the current arm model takes 40% of the energy from a person and the rest from the battery. I also hinted that they would reduce battery dependence by up to 90%, which would create a very advanced exoskeleton in the near future.
