How Military Robots Work?

Most of the military organization now takes the help of robots to carry out many risky jobs that cannot be done the soldier. These robots are a great help for military organizations. But one might often arise with the question how military robots work? And in what ways these robots help the military organization. Here, we will let you know about the different categories of military robots and how they actually work.


Let’s know how military robots are categorized and also find out the working of military robots. Military robots are categories as:

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) - These military robots are basically designed for the missions of surveillance and reconnaissance.

Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) – These robots are capable of entering hazardous or dangerous areas and can collect information without risking the lives of soldiers.

Multifunctional Utility/Logistics and Equipment (MULE) – These military robots are especially designed to provide combat support in conflict scenarios.

Armed Robotic Vehicles (ARV) – These robots are capable of carrying powerful weapons and sophisticated surveillance equipment.

As far as the working of military robots is concerned, the MULE and ARV vehicles mark the beginning of a new type of warfare. MULE has three proposed versions, which will roll around on wheels. Two variants of this robot is transportation vehicle. These two variant can carry more than a ton of equipment. The other vehicle is especially designed to detect and disable anti-tank landmines. The last variant of this robot is an Armed Robotic Vehicle-Assault-Light (ARV-A-L) device. This variant has reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition (RSTA) package & integrated weapons. In simple words, this robot is almost equal to a human soldier who can fight the enemy in combat.

The other kind of robot, i.e. ARV robots are more like tanks. In fact they are less like soldiers. These military robots are mainly used as support for manned vehicle missions. For instance the commander of a tank squadron can use these robots to extend his team's area of influence without the need for more soldiers. These robots can take the most dangerous positions as well as provide support whenever the manned vehicles enter a combat situation. However, the above article gave precise answer to the question how military robots work?
