USSOCOM orders Sarcos exoskeleton
Sarcos Robotics has received a contract from the US Special Operations Command to deliver a pre-production version of its Guardian XO full-body, autonomously powered robotic exoskeleton, the company announced on 18 March.
The system is a powered, untethered, industrial exoskeleton suit that improves human strength and endurance without restricting the user’s freedom of movement.
The Guardian XO can operate for up to eight hours per battery charge, while walking at three miles per hour and carrying up to 200lb of payload. Its rechargeable battery can be 'hot swapped' in the field, providing essentially unlimited endurance.
