The Pentagon division known as SOCOM (Special Operations Commander) is revising its LandWarrior program by getting back into TALOS suit business. Talos stands for Tactical Light Operator Suit and it will be operational for use by the DEVGRU aka SEAL team 6. SOCOM is collaborating with the DARPA Warrior Web Project to enlist the aid of nearly 100 different corporations and government agencies in development of the project. TALOS is being designed with an "open systems architecture", so if a new technology rises, it can be swapped in.

Here are the specs for the 1st generation TALOS:

Ballistic body armor covering about 60% of the operator, or three times more than current coverage
An even broader exoskeleton to distribute weight evenly across the wearer
An armored helmet integrating communications and optical gear
A power supply to run electronics and the exoskeleton for up to 12 hours without recharge
And all at a total system weight of less than 400 pounds

The stated aim is to have the first independently powered prototype in use by late August 2018; that's less than 3 years. 3-D printing will be used for some of the suit fabrication and I think this is why the suits will be able to come to fruition on such an immediate scale. These suits will be a real gamer changer and I think warfare will never be the same, but even deeper than that this tells me that the plan is for more war in the future. What says ATS?

as long as we don't end up with Robocops in our neighbourhoods it's all gravy.

I feel for the soldier who has to lug around 400 pounds not including supplies on the battlefield.

So um yeah if this material isnt being used then something is wrong.


Boeing: Lightest. Metal. Ever


We also need it to be invisible and bullet proof.





Also will need lasers and be able to fly in order to make it even the least bit useful!

They've been talking about all this fancy futuristic soldier tech for decades. Does anyone remember "Future Warrior"?

I think these projects are just a way to justify DARPA funding, and maybe every now and then a tiny sliver of the technology makes it out into the real world.

This is just the first generation of suits. The next wave will be lighter, stronger, and way more advanced.

WHy not just make bipedal humans sized robots? Using telepresence or giving them commands with a live soldier directing them onsite? Put them in the exosuits for more survivability. A Terminator looking robot will scare the brown pants of of most soldiers and or people on a battlefield. That white toothy smile....liek a shark. Those shiny metal parts that only a tank could love. isnt it beautiful? sniff.

I think innovation is great, but instead of finding better ways to kill each other, why can't we find better ways to live with each other?

Make robots that teach humans how to be...human LOL.

I've noticed we are behaving more like machines and our machines are being taught to act more like humans. Maybe one day an AI will be teaching a young child what "love" is and how humans used to have this emotion...

Isn't that indicative of how inhumane we've become when we have to create a science to discover humanity.

I think that would be best, but I doubt we will move onto helping each other, at least not until we blow the old system sky high through dense ignorance.

I always wonder why they dont talk to the people who actually designed the stuff for the movies

A lot of the times they have working models or at least insight on how this stuff works, its what they do for a living, then adapt that to military application

Seems a lot easier, then trying to reinvent the wheel

I dont see why everything in live die repeat isnt possible now, I think they could do alot better than what was in that movie. They need full body protection and flight.

Agreed. These suits should cover 100% not just 60% of the body.

Did anyone look at the price tag of these suits?

They are not cheap.

They should be for what they do right now, Japan has one for like 5000 bucks each, so they should each be twice that price and be twice as good.

Why pay more for stuff that doesnt work as well as the cheaper better version?

The way I see it, the Talos suit will be light years more advanced than the ones made by the Japanese. Theirs are only made for providing support when lifting heavy objects.

Agreed. I have no idea why they don't. We could certainly make our space ships look cooler than we do.

A little more than twice the price.
What I saw was a price tag of....
80 million dollars.

We know that old saying... if you have to look, you can't afford it.
I can't afford it.

I can see it now... RObotech used as a teaching tool. Teacher: Do you remember love ?

I got a better idea. ANd using that new lightweight material thats lighter than steel but 100,000 times stronger is a good start.

There are plenty of constructive applications for any technology.
