In Loсkheed Martin has developed a military exoskeleton

I'm Sure many of us in science fiction films and books faced with the description of the military of the future, which would be used as equipment exoskeletons that significantly improve the physical ability of the media. These devices really are developed, and one of them was recently presented one of the market leaders in the development of innovative weapons company Loсkheed Martin.

The Exoskeleton has been called the FORTIS K-SRD, and it is intended, according to the newspaper the Daily Robo, greatly reduce the fatigue of the military and improve their endurance. The researchers have already tested the first samples in an advanced treadmill, the angle of which during the test was able to change up to 15 degrees. In addition, in the experiment, the subjects wore a backpack weighing 20 kilograms. The exoskeleton attached to the legs of a man.

To evaluate the status read pulse, and pressure, was determined by General fatigue and weight vital signs of human health. It turned out that the use of the exoskeleton significantly reduces the load on the lower limbs and back while performing physical exercise. On average, the subjects tired is several times smaller and much slower than those who did not have a exoskeleton. In the future, Lockheed Martin plans to conduct testing of the FORTIS K-SRD in urban areas, on the staircases of tall buildings and in mountainous terrain.
