Militarymedia.net - Last week, one of the largest US military high-tech experiments ever looked like something from a science fiction film set. A four-legged robotic dog dashes out of an Air Force plane at an airfield in the Mojave Desert, offering a possible preview into the future of warfare.

Preliminary reconnaissance missions can look very different from the lead electronic dog, making them safer for US troops. In fact, robotic dogs will run outside the plane to scan for threats before the humans on the plane will be deployed.

The robot is just one element of what the US military calls the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). Advanced military technology uses artificial intelligence and fast data analytics to detect and counter threats to the US military. Furthermore, the technology is used to protect assets in outer space and possible attacks on the US homeland with missiles or other weapons.

The latest ABMS exercises run from 31 August to 3 September, and involve every branch of the military. Also, it includes the Coast Guard, and makes use of 30 locations across the country. In particular, the military is testing electronic canines at Nellis Air Force Base located in Nevada.

"The dogs gave us an overview of the area, while keeping our defenders closer to the plane," said the Teacher Sergeant. Lee Boston of the Air Force's 621th Contingency Response Group.

The manufacturer named the electronic dog the Vision 60 UGVs, or 'autonomous unmanned ground vehicle'. Ghost Robotics of Philadelphia, PA invents robotic technology. This promotes the dog's ability to operate in any terrain or environment. In addition, this machine is adaptable to carry various sensors and radios on a platform which is quite easy to use.

"The core design principle for our legged robot is reduced mechanical complexity when compared to other legged robots, and even UGVs with traditional wheel tracking," says the company website. “By reducing complexity, we inherently increase endurance, agility and endurance. Our Q-UGV is unstoppable. "

Indeed, this technology could be a major breakthrough, and could signal the future of the US military. In addition, robots may even be a key part of what Air Force news releases call the "killer chain."

“We are learning how to use… ABMS to connect sensors to gunners in all combat spaces, at speed and under threat. This maturation of concepts and capabilities is necessary to fight and win in the information age, "said General John Raymond, head of space operations.
