AUSA 21 – Ghost Robotics x SWORD Defense Systems

Ghost Robotics showed off the capabilities of their quadrupedal unmanned ground vehicles.

While most of the payloads are ISR related, one really stood out. The Special Purpose Unmanned Rifle (SPUR) is a 6.5 CM rifle package from SWORD Defense Systems designed specifically for use with the Vision-60 quadruped.

Remotely operated, it incorporates a sight and features safe, chamber, clear, and fire capabilities that allows for safe and reliable deployment of the weapon system, the operator can load and safe the weapon at a distance. These features also provide the operator the ability to clear malfunctions, and safely unload the platform prior to recovery.

The suppressor is the CGS Group Hyperion K.

    This reinforces my intent to invest in an anti-material rifle(s). Just a matter of time before SkyNet becomes self-aware.

    To this I say “hmmm”.

    Reminds me of the robots from the War of the world’s on Prime, the British series.

    I gotta believe these types of units are already being fielded. It would be a really bad day for an Infantry squad or platoon to run into some of these things, unless there was effective counter-measures such as some sort of EMP pulse or something.

    Metalhead from Black Mirror??

    Depending on communication range/battery life, these things are going to rapidly advance us to a place we don’t want to be.

    Aside from the military possibilities, my single biggest set of concerns about these and related technologies (aerial drones, “less lethals”, omnipresent surveillance) is the likelihood – no, the near CERTAINTY, of such being deployed against the citizenry as the collapse of our republic accelerates.
