As the "beat" goes on.......so does the evolution of technology. I continue to inquire on military hardware and new tech advancements and find more surprises in deployment around the world. Many companies are devoted to the world of robotics introducing hardware that mimic the science-fiction movies many enjoy watching.
A solutions factory in Israel called "G-NIUS" is developing and deploying unmanned ground systems. One system, Guardium MK1, is installed at perimeter control areas, such as, airports, energy plants and borders. These are lethal systems that guard dog areas with a variety of unmanned weapons. Another from Samsung, SGR-1, is a sentry gun monitoring hot demilitarized zones and can detect human facial recognition 2 miles away and capable of firing machine gun, grenade launcher and other without human intervention. These are weapons guarding areas that shoot first and answers questions later. A Samsung link identified the SGR-1 as deployed currently on Israel's borders.
Another automated weapons system that has been in development by a company, Foster-Miller, for years is called "Swords". It was first developed as a proof of concept project to show the military. Swords, has human intervention, however plans are advertised for future automatic operation without human intervention. This weapon system use a variety of lethal force from machine gun, sniper rifle, rockets and more.
Our world military is looking more and more like the emergence of the science-fiction movies like 'The Terminator" or "Robocop". Maybe the movie creators are watching these developments, thus informing the public this is our future.
Although, I enjoy the search capabilities of the internet, I more often think it is a curse. Some things, I just rather would not want to know, like those three monkeys, "See no evil, Speak no evil, Hear no evil". Just sit in my rocking chair on the front porch and watch that Predator fire a rocket at me. Sounds like a great way to leave this cursed planet.
