Once again, I would stress that this is only what we are being allowed to see. Goodness knows what they’re testing in the classified projects.
Talking at a US Army demonstration of autonomous weaponized robots at Fort Benning, Georgia, experts said that “ten years from now, there will probably be one soldier for every 10 robots. Each soldier could have one or five robots flanking him, looking for enemies, scanning for land mines.”
Those are the words of Scott Hartley, co-founder of 5D Robotics, who demonstrated his companies’ machines along with Northrop Grumman, QinetiQ, HDT Robotics and other robotics corporations catering to the US military. Harley also added that “robots can save lives.” And indeed they can, helping soldiers survive in a hostile environment and making their lives easier. But, obviously, they are also making them to kill.
