New Battlefield Technology Feels Like Science Fiction

Stars and Stripes reports that “the U.S. military is trying to build an armored suit similar to the one worn by fictional superhero Iron Man.”

“Some of the technology exists, so a functional suit might be only a decade or so away, though experts say it may be better to invest in unmanned vehicles, robots or training for ordinary soldiers.”

“U.S. Special Operations Command has been asking defense contractors and researchers to demonstrate high-tech inventions such as exoskeletons, heads-up displays, night vision, sensors and body armor that could be incorporated into such a suit.”
