Default Armed Robots Soon Marching to Battle?

Armed Robots,
Soon Marching to Battle?

By Sgt. Lorie Jewell
Army News Service
December 03, 2004

ORLANDO, Fla. - Soldiers may have armed robots as battle buddies by early next year, according to industry and military officials attending the biennial Army Science Conference.

The Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection System, or SWORDS, will be joining Stryker Brigade Soldiers in Iraq when it finishes final testing, said Staff Sgt. Santiago Tordillos, a bomb disposal test and evaluation NCOIC with the EOD Technology Directorate of the Army's Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J.


"We're hoping to have them there by early 2005," Tordillos said. "The Soldiers I've talked to want them yesterday."
