Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
Exoskeleton technology closer than ever to hitting the market
Sarcos Robotics is developing a Teleoperated Dexterous Robot for the US armed forces, under a contract awarded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) in 2020.
The Guardian DX defence robot leverages technologies already developed through its Guardian XO robotic exoskeleton.
In the same year (2019) that the US Army terminated its Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) programme, USSOCOM awarded Sarcos Robotics a contract to deliver a pre-production version of its Guardian XO full-body, autonomously powered robotic exoskeleton.
The 2019 contract was followed in 2020 by another for USMC use of the Guardian XO exoskeleton Alpha Unit, with delivery initially expected by the end of 2020.
After Sarcos Robotics announced a merger with Rotor Acquisition Corporation, in this video Shephard speaks to Ben Wolff, Chairman and CEO of Sarcos, to discuss upcoming deliveries of the Guardian DX and developments with Guardian XO, plus future investment plans.
