A new video has been released by the researchers at DARPA providing a quick glimpse at what you can expect from the new technologies and designs that are being developed for ground vehicles of the future battlefield. Check out the DARPA video below to see new technologies created for DARPA by the likes of Carnegie Mellon University, National Robotics Engineering Center, Honeywell International, Pratt & Miller, QinetiQ and Raytheon BBN Technologies.
DARPA’s Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program has been created to develop and improve mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armour. The demonstration video embedded below shows the progress on technologies for traveling quickly over varied terrain and improving “situational awareness and ease of operation”.
“We’re looking at how to enhance survivability by buttoning up the cockpit and augmenting the crew through driver-assistance aids,” said Maj. Amber Walker, the program manager for GXV-T in DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office. “For mobility, we’ve taken a radically different approach by avoiding armor and developing options to move quickly and be agile over all terrain.”
