The army has developed "unmanned tank" which is expected to put into high-risk battlefield
[ Abstract ] at present, the latest development of the U.S. a "unmanned tank", can let the soldiers remote control, it can automatically change the loading of ammunition and weapons, the future will be put into the high-risk battlefield area, reduce the rate of casualties.
The latest development of the U.S. "ripsaw (Ripsaw) Unmanned tanks, can remote control,
automatic loading ammunition, press the button to select weapons.
According to media reports, at present, the latest development of the U.S.'s most advanced tank - "ripsaw (Ripsaw)", do not even need the driver, according to the disclosure of the tank has been tested. This "unmanned tank" remote control, capable of reloading, press the button to change the weapon.
The United States military research, development and Engineering Center (Bob Testa) - Bob testa said, "Ripper" tank future can be put into use on the battlefield, while the unmanned tanks are still in the development stage, has passed the test, the biggest advantage of this unmanned tank is capable of wireless remote control.
In 2009, the "public science"Magazine in the" Ripper "tanks for invention of a technology, but the technology grounded for a period of time. The researchers added the "ordinary remote control weapon station on a tank (CROWS), the weapon system can make soldiers in tanks, armored car Hummer, history of TREK or other armored vehicles, from inside the safe launch weapons, that is to say, the soldiers don't stretch out on armed emission.
"Ordinary camera remote control weapon station assembly and range finder can make soldiers fine-tuning and rotating weapons to attack the target more accurately. Although the system can greatly reduce the mortality rate, but hiding in the vehicle's staff will still lead to
injury or death in mines or suffered and projectile attacks. At present, the researchers will "ordinary remote controlled weapon station" further escalation, soldiers can not operate in the tank, thereby reducing the rate of casualties.
