you um should be good I know we just charged the battery back up they're saying it neither have I do we're just going to having you on one foot o'clock and so you have them set up can you break them out real quick special animal welcome up weapons think you want this around that more it turned out to draw power the fire will escape charge in yes there so it's a 40 fun yeah that's pretty hot burning out start up yeah the batteries could get hot into the you know the 50s then you got to start thinking about which this is an enabler to force multiplier and it will preserve and and combat power you know from a safety standpoint but it'll also allow them to cover more area larger area of influence it'll let the current force to do more cover more area lightening the load you know they can offload it on here they can get the objective they're not tired they could have more ammo they can fight for 72 hours with this they could load this up and then fight for 72 hours without resupply so it allows I think it's going to enable them to complete their mission that they're going to be given for this expeditionary they like the company landing teams it's going to help make that possible because they're limited in the airlift that they can put in but they still have to fight they have to have their gear so I think it's an enabler for the the upcoming missions and expeditionary profiles that they're looking at this is the General Dynamics Land Systems and multi utility tactical transport or much okay so yeah so this is the track version of the 4×4 you can swap out wheels the wheels are also effective the tracks are good for floating on mud and snow and sand and there's also a six by so six wheels six driven wheels and then an 8 by which is a 8 wheels and those are really filling the gap filled by the original M 274 mule the purpose of it is to help dismounted war fighters by carrying load letting them offload equipment or carrying large more capable weapons like this where we take five people one person can get a 50 Cal downrange so the idea is to provide lighten the load and then expeditionary power people are always running out of power in the field this will allow them to bring more more gear more batteries or a charger too bad to charge up their batteries today what we're doing is a final exercise for the past six weeks these Marines of kilo 3/5 and Nick will have trained to the technologies that we're integrating so the Marine Corps wore fine lab we test and evaluate future concepts and technologies we have a concept based experiment that we're doing we have over 40 technologies here and not with the CLT kilo 3/5 some of them range from five unmanned ground vehicles to five unmanned aerial systems we're looking at technology that reduces logistics which we have termed logistics demand reduction now we have unmanned ground vehicles which can actually carry two 40s and 50 caliber weapon systems and it can be right next to a foot mobile company so now we're bringing weapon systems that are not normally foot mobile to the company itself we have five unmanned aerial systems that we're going to be playing with one of them is the black Hornet it's about four inches long it is brought down to the squad level this thing cannot be heard after it goes above 30 feet so you basically can peak around the corner without the enemy knowing and you can see what is around the next corner for that squad leader to know the small quadcopter that has been flying around is called the inch deny it has three cameras that allow it to see straight ahead forty-five or straight down you can reach out and see what's coming at you and what you can be expecting here in the next one hundred thousand meters the 40 technologies that we're experimenting with will make the marine corps more efficient more lethal and more survivable so ultimately what we want is the first person or first thing in the door is a robot to get si into what's around the next corner
Future Military Technology: US Marines test new Future Weapons, Military Drones, Robots & Equipment
Marine Corps Base Camp Penleton, Calif.—Marines with 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment test equipment provided by the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory on Camp Pendleton, Calif. The equipment they are testing ranges from unmanned ground and aerial vehicles, new technology in expeditionary medicine, reusable energy and water purifying systems. The Warfighting Labs identifies possible challenges of the future and develops new warfighting concepts and tests new ideas to help develop equipment that meets the challenges of the future operating environment.
About the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory:
The United States Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory (MCWL) was established in 1995, at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. The organization was originally known as the Commandant’s Warfighting Laboratory. The warfighting lab is part of the Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC) and its stated purpose is to improve current and future naval expeditionary warfare capabilities across the spectrum of conflict for current and future operating forces.
The organization is in charge of various aspects of advanced techniques and technology in the United States Marine Corps, and is also responsible for overseeing the Urban Warrior program. Recently the MCWL has been overseeing the testing and implementation of distributed operations at the behest of General James Amos, the former Commanding General of MCCDC.
