Revision Military Exoskeleton

In just about every futuristic depiction of American soldiers, at least some of them are outfitted with exoskeletons. In these possible futures, regular enlisted men become super heroes with the ability to jump high, lift heavy objects, and run fast. While we aren’t quite there yet, exoskeletons like Revision Military are taking us closer by the day.

In crude terms, the way this suit works is by transferring weight down from the helmet onto the suit, and then onto the hips and legs which are then assisted by the PROWLER system. This system reduces stress by using motor mechanisms in both knee-sides, making it so a dismounted soldier with a 70 to 80 pound load would have no stress being placed on his knee joints. In practical terms, all of this means that a service member wearing this exoskeleton can show up after 6 hours of travel fresher and with more energy than if they hadn’t had it on. While these aren’t being used by the military right now, they were developed with the SOCOM TALOS (Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit) guidelines in mind, making the suit eligible for defense department funding in the future.
