The first military robot is being developed by the United States to be used on battlefields in the Middle East and Africa, according to a military source.
A283c is a titanium-coated steel plate designed to withstand shock and be lightweight enough to carry weapons and ammunition in its backpack, the source said.
The robot will be manufactured by Advanced Technology Laboratories, a division of Northrop Grumman, a unit of Northrup Grummann.
The first prototype was rolled out last month at Northrop’s headquarters in Fairfield, Iowa, and is the second such deployment of a military robot, the sources said.
It will deploy in Syria and Iraq later this year.
The Pentagon has asked the U.S. Army to develop a small number of military robots to support troops in combat zones in the 2020s.
The robot is intended to be small enough to fit into a backpack for use on the battlefields of the future, according the source.
The weapon system will be mounted on the robot’s body and would fire a guided round, similar to the one used by the U,S.
A284a is a lightweight titanium alloy steel plate that is used in a range of military applications, including aircraft engines and missile systems.
The armor is made of high-strength titanium and is a material that can withstand up to 15,000 pounds of force.
It was used in the U-2 spy plane in the 1960s and 1970s and is used by a variety of countries including Israel, Turkey and Brazil.
