Military Robots

The military has been using robots to enter and perform dangerous tasks. The demand for robots has risen recently due to the ability to possibly save a life by sending a robot instead. The Bombot is used with roadside bombs. 
  • Blevins works with the Robotics Systems Joint Program Office on Redstone Arsenal and said the robot repair shop was in an exotic place.
  • Troops use the robots in the war "for explosives disposals and to check out bunkers and buildings for insurgents," Blevins said. "It's much easier to send in a robot than send in a soldier."
  • Since early 2004, the Pentagon's demand for robots has increased. Griffin's office started out with about 50 robots headed to Iraq, he said "and now we've got more than 4,000 ... that's an incredible growth rate. We've put together an almost new industry."
  • One robot type that troops use is called Bombot, a $5,000 robot used to detect roadside bombs, but it is pretty much disposable.
  • The machines are called robots, but a better description of their appearance would be remote-controlled lawn and garden equipment. The sci-fi stereotype of a walking, talking human doesn't really apply.
