Robots in the US Military

Robots can have multiple purposes within the military, including deactivating unexploded bombs or clearing out hostile buildings.  When the United States introduced robots into the field, it completely changed how military members approached dangerous situations.  With a robot present, the risk to human life is drastically decreased.  If a human operator makes a mistake, it’s likely that the only casualty will be a robot, which can easily be replaced.

So what exactly is a military robot?  It’s a machine that is controlled by an onboard computer that has sensors which allow them to get information from their surroundings.  Most times, robots are controlled by a military member using a joystick from a nearby location or vehicle.  Robots can come in a variety of forms, with some looking like an airplane, others looking like a small remote controlled car and everything in between.  The most common robot used on the battlefield is called a “man-portable” robot, which means that a single person can carry the machine from place to place.

No matter the type of robot used, these incredible machines are proving to be extremely helpful during times of war.  Countless lives are being saved every day, thanks to the use of robots.  It’s possible that some day in the future, most of the fighting will actually be done by robots, rather than humans.
