Normally I write about the Navy on this site, but since the Marines are a sister organization and since this kind of technology is also being pursued by the Navy, I thought you might find it of interest.
You may remember a blog I wrote a few months ago talking about the Navy’s work on a robotic suit or exoskeleton called TALOS. Well the Marines are getting ready to test their own exoskeleton technology known as Guardian XO and it’s described in a new military.com article. Basically it lets whoever straps on the robotics lift up to 200 pounds and work for hours without fatigue or injury. You can check out this technology via a video in the article and also a slightly longer video provided by Guardian XO’s manufacturer, Sarcos.
