U.S. Army soldiers will replace part of living robots

Speaking on 15 January at the American aviation symposium in Arlington, Virginia, General Robert Cone, head of the Division for the training of commanders of the U.S. Army announced that in the near future Army plans to replace some members of staff of robots .

General expressed the view that U.S. military forces should be transformed into “a more compact, lethal, flexible and ready for immediate deployment force” capable of solving the same problems that are currently assigned to the army today.

Military analysts, based on common technical and economic parameters, consider that the number of soldiers in the brigade tactical groups can be reduced from 4,000,000 units to 3,000,000 units. While 25 per cent drop in the number of personnel can sometimes compensate for the introduction of robots and other automated platforms.

The solution to this problem would be to develop an automated ground vehicles capable of how to perform and give orders to people. Portal Defense News writes that such robots will be lightly armored and have increased mobility. All of this will reduce the overall cost of maintenance of each individual team.

“I have a clear idea of ​​exactly which tasks can be performed by robotic platforms, the opportunity arises in the future,” – shared a senior military, who also pointed out that already has received “a clear idea about the possibility of” revision number of the standard infantry squad, which is now 9 people.

“For decades various military operations U.S. Army has significantly reduced its capabilities in mobility, firepower and the ability to deploy quickly” – General clarified.

And most of these opportunities declined in favor of protection of the army itself. She literally had to adapt to guerrilla tactics and other forms of asymmetric warfare to be able to conduct operations across the globe.

By the end of 2015 the total number of U.S. Army soldiers will be reduced from 540 to 490,000, and by 2019 this figure will decrease by approximately another 70,000. Kone said that a deep analysis of these issues in the near future will Advisory Group.

According to the general, reduce the number of soldiers to 1,000 units in each brigade can really contribute to the increased technical capabilities and recent scientific discoveries. Development of robots occurs so rapidly that in the near future they could really shift some tasks that are now performed live people.
