Scientific movies have given a wide range of ideas to humankind for development of hi-tech machinery that can be used in a variety of operations. With advancement in technology, devising various equipments is getting easier. Technology has already led to production of devices such as the speech-suppressing gun, pain ray, mind-controlling gun, hypersonic weapons, mechanical animals and self-guided bullets. All these creations signify futuristic escalation.
Now, the US military’s Iron Man armor is also in the list of hi-tech machinery that we are about to witness for real in some time. They have already named it as Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS). US Special Operations Command’s head assured that the first prototype of Iron Man suit would be ready in June 2014.
According to the Navy Admiral William McRaven, the suit is currently being put together and after completion, it will be evaluated. The whole process will take some time and they hope that the armor will be field-ready by August 2014. TALOS features an exoskeleton, a situational-awareness display and technologically advanced full-body armor. If the machinery is successful in doing all desired operations, it will be installed with on-board computer, health monitors and MIT-developed liquid armor.
16 government agencies, 56 corporations, 10 national laboratories and 13 universities are working together to make this Iron Man suit a possibility. This development is definitely going to work as an advantage and the reasons are:
Iron Man suit can ensure public safety in many ways. When natural disasters strike, many people are killed because forces are not able to reach them at time. Even if the forces reach the appropriate location, they are not able to help people. TALOS will certainly be able to help people as it features some hi-tech gadgetry.
Health and Power Monitoring
It can monitor health of soldiers and apply special foam on wounded areas to stop bleeding. It can also access the energy levels of soldiers and other people.
Department of Homeland Security and the firefighting department are also interested in the invention. They have already asked the U.S. Special Operations Command about the technology and seem interested to use one. They could use Iron Man suit in a variety of instances.
Raids and battlefields
The technologically advanced full-body armor of the Iron Man suit can dodge bullets. Hence, soldiers as well as FBI can use it in battlefields or raiding purposes, respectively.
