DOGO Combat Robot

We have seen the future of tactical combat technologies, and it includes DOGO, a 26-pound tank robot that boasts an integrated Glock 26 (Baby Glock) 9mm pistol that can fire 5-rounds in 2-seconds. To aim the weapon, an operator would simply use the "Point & Shoot" software interface. Just touch the aim point on the control unit's screen - 360° video provided by 6 cameras, and you're ready to fire. It's also capable of climbing stairs and comes equipped with a two-way audio communications system, just in case the enemy is willing to surrender. Fully charged, expect 2-hours of continuous use while chugging along at 2.5mph. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Blitzer Electromagnetic

Railguns are being examined for use as anti-aircraft weapons to intercept air threats, particularly anti-ship cruise missiles, in addition to land bombardment. The first weaponized railgun planned for production, the General Atomics Blitzer system, launches a streamlined discarding sabot round designed by Boeing's Phantom Works at Mach 5 with accelerations exceeding 60,000 gn. During one of the tests, the projectile was able to travel an additional 4.3-miles downrange after penetrating a 3.2mm thick steel plate. The company has just released a new test video showing it in-action. Thus far, the project is self-funded. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Trophy Active Defense Forcefield

Rafael's Trophy Active Protection System has been in the development stages for quite some time, but the US military is now finally testing the shotgun-based forcefield technology. In a nutshell, it intercepts and destroys incoming missiles and rockets with a shotgun-like blast. The design includes the Elta EL/M-2133 F/G band fire-control radar with four flat-panel antennas mounted on the vehicle, with a 360° field of view. When a projectile is detected, the internal computer calculates an approach vector almost instantly, before it arrives. Once the incoming weapon is fully classified, the computers calculate the optimal time and angle to fire the neutralizers. The response comes from two rotating launchers installed on the sides of the vehicle which fire neutralizing agents, usually small metal pellets like buckshot. The system is designed to have a very small kill zone, so as not to endanger personnel adjacent to the protected vehicle. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

DARPA Sea Hunter

Here's a first look at DARPA's Sea Hunter, an anti-submarine drone shipaimed at improving the ability to detect and engage diesel-electric submarines. Once a wide-area sensor provides an initial indication of a possible target, the forward deployed ACTUV will then rapidly "sprint" to the area and use its own sensors to assess the contact. First, two side pods with long-range acquisition mid-frequency active-passive sonar will verify the presence of a submarine and identify the area of uncertainty (AOU) affected by the threat to limit close surface ships' movement. Second, two higher frequency sonars in the main hull will improve tracking precision and mission reliability. Once in close proximity, total field magnetometer arrays will provide additional information about target activity to continuously track it. Finally, very high frequency sonar will produce an "acoustic image" of the target to identify and classify the specific submarine. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
