The 10th Mountain Division (light infantry) based at Fort Drum, New York, is a mountain warfare unit testing a new a robotic pack-mule that can haul more than 1,000 pounds of equipment, weapons, fuel, and or ammunition, tremendously lightening the load for soldiers.

位于纽约德拉姆堡的轻步兵美国陆军第10山地师是一个山地作战部队,正在测试一种新型的机器人驮骡,它可以运载超过1000磅的设备、武器、燃料和弹药,极大地减轻了士兵的负担。



SMET requires to carry up to 1,000 pounds and be able to travel 60 miles over 72 hours. Each vehicle must have a "power generation system, as well, that can support an ever-expanding array of electronics, including communications gear, hand-held sensors, portable navigation systems, and electronic warfare equipment, that small Army unit carry with them even on short-duration operations," .

多功能设备运输机器人需要携带多达1000磅的重量,并能在72小时内行驶60英里。 每辆车都必须有一个"发电系统,能够支持一系列不断扩大的电子设备,包括通讯设备、手持传感器、便携式导航系统和电子战设备,小型陆军部队甚至在短期行动中也能随身携带,"



Troops will be able to control these “robotic pack mules” using handheld remote controls. A “follow-me” functionality, in which the robot will follow troops through all sorts of terrain has been a major requirement of SMET.

部队将能够使用手持遥控器控制这些"机器骡子"。 "跟随我"功能,机器人将跟随部队通过各种地形已成为多功能运输机器人的主要要求。

troops will continue testing the prototypes into summer 2019.The pilot test is currently being conducted at Fort Drum and Fort Campbell in Kentucky, before a broader deployment across the service in 2020.

部队将继续测试原型机直到2019年夏天。试点测试目前正在肯塔基州的德拉姆堡和坎贝尔堡进行,然后在2020年在整个部队范围内进行更广泛的部署。

"The decisions they make impact the Army of the future for a long time, so it's outstanding to have this unit out here that's really motivated and doing great stuff for us," said Lt. Col. Jon Bodenhammer, who's supervising the pilot testing program.

"他们做出的决定将在很长一段时间内影响未来的陆军,所以这支部队能够真正为我们做出积极的贡献,这是非常了不起的,"负责飞行测试项目的乔恩 ·博登哈默中校说。

Robots appear to be the future on the modern battlefield. The next push will be the Army weaponizing these robots for the modern battlefield.

机器人似乎是现代战场上的未来。下一步将是军队为现代战场武器化这些机器人。
