Rise Of The Machines: U.S. Military to Have More ROBOT Soldiers Than Human by the Year 2025

Warfare is being reinvented. Like a scene out of The Terminator, the future of warfare is destined to include robot soldiers, unmanned aerial assault, and self-driving, weaponized vehicles. An $11 million contract approved by the Pentagon has been awarded to Six3 Advanced Systems. The US Department of Defense is calling on Six3 to “design, develop, and validate system prototypes for a combined-arms squad.” By the year 2025, experts predict that the U.S. military will have more robot soldiers than humans.

According to the U.S. Department of Defense directive, the new American fighting squad is meant to combine “humans and unmanned assets, ubiquitous communications and information, and advanced capabilities in all domains to maximize squad performance in increasingly complex operational environments.”

Unmanned, self-driving, weaponized vehicles

The military aims to test a new system prototype by mid 2019. The robotic fleet may include underwater drones and unmanned Army trucks that drive themselves. The Army already has plans to test the unmanned vehicles at the Blue Water Bridge in Michigan. This will be the first time the Army has ever unleashed self-driving vehicles onto public roads. The test will take place on Interstate 69 highway in Michigan.

“The U.S. military is very likely to pursue forms of automation that reduce ‘back-office’ costs over time, as well as remove soldiers from non-combat deployments where they might face risk from adversaries on fluid battlefields, such as in transportation,” says Michael Horowitz, an expert on weaponized robots.

“Just as in the civilian economy, automation will likely have a big impact on military organizations in logistics and manufacturing.” The US military has already cut costs using technology; for instance, warships such as the USS Zumwalt are now operated by 50 percent fewer soldiers than previous crews.

The robot technology will accompany soldiers on dangerous missions and perform other important tasks such as delivering supplies, analyzing legal documents, diagnosing disease, and assisting in the operating room. The robots will also be useful for detecting mines, mapping terrain, and detecting weather hazards.

John Bassett, a former British intelligence officer said, “Intelligent robotic weapons – they’re a reality, and they will be much more of a reality by 2030.” Nothing is scarier than a fully automated $200,000 robot that can scan terrain, locate humans and shoot them up to 2 miles away.

These robot prototypes could be the first vehicles to enter dangerous territories. There’s no doubt that using robots to perform certain stealth missions could spare the lives of soldiers, but using robots to more readily penetrate enemy territory could involve more risk-taking overall, leading to unintended consequences on a grander scale.

Many of the new prototypes to be released in the next decade will be weaponized, leading to a new precedent in how wars are fought. How will future militaries prepare to defend against an incoming robot army? (Related: For more robot and technology news, check out Robotics.News.)

    The plan with robots is destined to fail. If a robot comes to me I will destroy it any way I can.

  2. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    If a robot comes to me I will destroy it any way I can. Too many things that can go wrong with robots for the plan to succeed long-term.

  3. Sgt. Dale says:

    I don’t see a problem with this.
    Better to bleed Hydraulic fluid than blood.
    Rise of the machine. Fear Porn SyFy.

  4. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    My first post wouldn’t go through because of that stupid ‘duplicate comment’ page. But I know everyone understands.

  5. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    Sarge it would be interesting to see what 00 buck can do to one of those machines.

  6. Definitely will be jobs in robotics. But soon there will be even fewer low skill jobs. We had a robot cleaning the floor. It worked pretty good except you had to be careful not to trip over it. And it needed to be emptied when it filled up with dirt and dust.

    I’m less worried by robots in 2030 than by the Agenda 2030 project for new cities.

    Until the USA is controlled by Americans and not Zios, it will be a dangerous place to live. Robots are just a tool. Like guns, they are an inanimate object. What is important is WHO controls the robots. If the controllers hate us, as they seem to, we are in greater and greater trouble as technology improves. But if we the people control our destiny, robots will improve our lives, not destroy them.

    • The Deplorable Braveheart says:

      B, I would just as soon destroy the robots. No way to trust them.

    • 41MagMan says:

      “And it needed to be emptied when it filled up with dirt and dust.”

      Sounds as if another robot is needed for clean-out duty. 😉

      “I would just as soon destroy the robots. No way to trust them.”

      LOL! Considering all of the treacherous BS that people have pulled on each other over the centuries, just who should be mistrusting whom?

  7. Archivist says:

    Robots can be easy to fool.

    Example: holding a fake stop sign in front of a self-driving car.

  8. Utter non-sense. They still don’t have bi-ped robots that can walk properly, much less move in an expedited way to stay out of harms way.

    • 41MagMan says:

      So what? Who says that bipedal movement is the best way to move? Having 6 legs with 3 on the ground at all times is a MUCH more stable and load-bearing system. Robotic pack-horses would be a huge asset to ground troops because they can carry a lot of heavy items for the troops in combat zones. Water and ammo are HEAVY. Having a robot to carry such things would make a combat soldier’s burden in battle a LOT less, yet they would still have ready access to the supplies they need for extended ops.

  9. Brian says:

    Darpa usually employs Boston Dynamix for their robotics. They have some great robots already developed. We’re on course for the Terminator movies future. The US is not the only country that will have robots. Eventually, the technology will find its way into the hands of other militaries. Robots have absolutely no reason to destroy, are void of emotions, and are very logical. When American robots encounter Chinese and Russian robots, the logical thing for them to do is to unite against the humans that are using them to destroy and be destroyed. Maybe its time to invest in a bunker and forget about shelter in place.

  10. k9base says:

    better start buying AP ammo now…

  11. Richard Steven Hack says:

    “By the year 2025, experts predict that the U.S. military will have more robot soldiers than humans.”

    Utter bullshit.

    Even just based on simple manufacturing, how do you get more robots than a million man army in just eight years? It’s ludicrous.

    Let alone the logistical adjustments that will have to be made, etc. It will take the military bureaucracy DECADES to adjust.

    And finally, artificial intelligence is NO WHERE CLOSE to being able to produce a fully robotic soldier. That’s utter nonsense.

    Drone vehicles, maybe. Even that will be hard. How long has it taken Google to produce self-driving cars? Put those cars in COMBAT? Seriously?

    This is gee-whiz BS from the get-go. You won’t see “robotic armies” before 2050, if then. Which is not to say there won’t be tons of new drones and robotic vehicles introduced here an there.

    • buttcrackofdoom says:

      why would we need a million man army, if we have half a million robots? how do you KNOW so much about what “they” can do….i doubt the average amelican has a clue about what goes on in the military’s pipeline…..google IS producing those self-drivers, right? MOST of the technology is already here….hell, they could make decent fighting robots with what they already HAVE. PFFT! put some of those kids rfom that tv show, robot wars, on it, and we got some REAL robot wars.

  12. TEST says:

    Nothing is scarier than a fully automated $200,000 robot that can scan terrain, locate humans and shoot them up to 2 miles away.

    Oh yes there IS something scarier. Wait ’til you can buy these darned things at Best Buy for ten bucks!

  13. Anonymous says:

    T2 judgement day bullshit. By the year 2025 our economy will be so decimated, there will
    not be money for robot soldiers.

  14. Traitor Hator says:

    I guess if they could combine human DNA with rabid rat DNA they would have their perfect law enforcement officials? As long as they obey any order? The new world order? Ordered around by large vicious rats? With some bird DNA so they could fly? Large flying rats with badges?
