Australia’s forefront troops could begin using drones soon along with sensors and suite of other complex innovations to arrange their movements and perform calculated yet savage strikes in close battle circumstances.
That is the vision for the Defense division’s solider combat system program (SCSP), which plans to “expand” fighters with robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) over the next decade.
The division has put out the call for data to illuminate its approach to deal with the human-machine teaming (HUM-T) initiative throughout the following two years after an initial partner workshop in July.
It pursues work by the Defense Science and Technology Group in the course of the last year to comprehend what Australia’s “cutting edge warrior” may look like.
By joining forces “advanced robotic systems with humans”, the office would like to accomplish “strategic advantage” by “modernizing levels of protection and lethality” for its troopers.
While current analogue battle gear – which cost upwards of $30,000 per solider – is viewed as top tier, Defense needs officers outfitted with mechanical technology, AI, sensors and information for “increasingly powerful close soldier groups”.
“The present warrior battle group (SCE) gives the best assurance and portability suite of gear at any point offered to Australian soldiers. While the present gauge is magnificent, the development of rising innovations and speed of lethality advances requires a modernization approach that isn’t dependent upon steady advances in surviving insurance frameworks. The following advancement of the SCS must begin combination of machines, sensors and information that help close soldier survivability, lethality and nearby condition understanding”, the solicitation for data states
In any case, so as to present these rising advancements, the office will initially need to improve information access at a strategic level, which is right now “nearly non-existent”.
