Development of multi-mission robots
Military robots are increasingly designed to carry out multiple missions. Advances in technology and miniaturization of electronic components have made operational flexibility in robots a reality. Unlike humans, robots do not suffer physical and mental exhaustion. They are designed for greater endurance from the impact of bombs and weapons.
The present-day robots are thus equipped with mission-specific modules and munitions to enable a variety of tasks. The payloads that these robots carry may be integrated in line with the mission requirements. For instance, radio frequency devices are used in robotic ground vehicles to enable convoy operations. Tele-operated robotic arms are fitted in robots for bomb disposal. Other payloads that are carried by robots include sensors, manipulators, cameras, computer displays, radars, munitions, etc.
“These robots can perform a wide range of missions like ISR, explosive ordinance disposal, and special weapons and tactics. These robots can perform bomb disposal, counter mine missions, and conduct reconnaissance and surveillance. They have abilities for precision pointing and capturing of high-definition data,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead analyst at Technavio for defense research.
Integration of weapons systems into robots
One of the crucial applications with respect to robots is weapons delivery. Robots are being developed to carry different payloads as per mission requirements such as grenades, missiles, and machine guns. The intent of using combat robots is basically to perform precision war fighting. With technological advances, it has become possible to program robots for very accurate deployment of weapons, which may not be possible for soldiers.
Another recent advance in weapon systems research is the prospect of laser weapons. It is anticipated that military drones may be armed with laser weapons in the future. Lasers may also be deployed at a faster rate and with greater precision. This technology may be able to counter an enemy object by melting it without causing an explosion.
Development of humanoid robots
Humanoid robots are being developed over the years for various applications. Countries such as Japan and China have extensively employed humanoids for manufacturing and service functions. The ultimate objective is to perform tasks faster and more accurately than humans. Moreover, robots can take up many tasks without physical and emotional downturns.
“Countries such as the US, Russia, and India have plans to use humanoids in their armies. These robots can mimic the abilities of soldiers and will be able to assist them in the future. Humanoids may initially operate under the guidance of a soldier and may evolve later to work autonomously. This is expected to bring down the number of casualties in war,” says Moutushi.
