  3 US Army soldiers killed during training at Fort Stewart, officials say Three U.S. Army soldiers were killed during training at Fort Stewart in Georgia, according to officials. © U.S. Army A Bradley Fighting Vehicle during a training session at Fort Stewart in Georgia, Sept. 25, 2019. The soldiers, part of the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, were pronounced dead on the scene after the Bradley Fighting Vehicle they were riding in was involved in an accident early Sunday morning, Patrick Husted, division public affairs officer, said in a news release.Another three soldiers were injured and evacuated to the Winn Army Community Hospital for treatment.

The United States Armed Forces are the military forces of the United States of America. It consists of the Army , Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

So, why make arms and legs so superior to what is needed for the life of a disabled veteran ? is this to offer disabled soldiers in the future the chance to return to active duty and the battlefield, augmented with superior technology to make them cyborg soldiers , with greater capability than the ordinary

  • The U.S. Army is trying to forecast what biomedically enhanced technologies could be available by 2050.
  • The tech includes electronically super hearing, muscular control, and telepathic transfer of data.
  • The Army fully expects to equip soldiers with such technologies, but what about the society that invents them?

The U.S. Army believes that a range of technologies could be available by 2050 that would effectively turn the average soldier into a cybernetically enhanced super soldier. A recent Department of Defense study predicted that enhanced vision, enhanced hearing, musculature control, and what amounts to telepathy would all become possible within 30 years, given the current pace of technological development.

  3 Army soldiers killed in training accident ID'd Fort Stewart officials said the soldiers' vehicle rolled off a bridge and become submerged upside down in a stream. Officials would not say how the vehicle fell off the bridge. “Our family is heartbroken at the news of this tragic accident at Ft. Stewart,” Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said in a statement Sunday. “Our prayers are with the families of those who passed and those undergoing treatment for their injuries.” The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the 3rd Infantry Division and a team from the U.S.

The report, Cyborg Soldier 2050: Human/Machine Fusion and the Implications for the Future of the DOD, gives a hint of what the Department of Defense forecasts for soldiers in the next 30 years. The U.S. Army’s Mad Scientist Blog highlights the executive summary. The report highlighted four specific technologies:

“Ocular enhancements, to imaging, sight, and situational awareness.”

Currently U.S. soldiers use bulky, relatively heavy night vision goggles to see in the dark. One possibility is the development of contact lenses with the same capability, perhaps even with a digital zoom that uses augmented reality to project critical data (enemy and friendly positions, routes, etc.) onto the wearer’s field of view.

Austrian army says soldier mauled to death by service dogs

  Austrian army says soldier mauled to death by service dogs The Austrian army says a 31-year-old soldier appears to have been killed by two service dogs he was tasked with feeding. The army said an officer spotted the two Belgian Shepherd dogs running loose at the barracks south of Vienna early Thursday. The fatally injured staff sergeant was subsequently found inside the dogs’ kennel.An investigation has been launched into the cause of the attack.Austrian public broadcaster ORF quoted a Defense Ministry spokesman saying one of the dogs was an fully trained service dog while the second, aged about six months, was about to undergo training.

DARPA works on chip in the brain that will translate between brains and computers.

This is a list of weapons served individually by the United States armed forces , sorted by type and current level of service. While the general understanding is that crew-served weapons require more

“Restoration and programmed muscular control through an optogenetic bodysuit.”

A restorative suit could rejuvenate tired muscles, refreshing physically tired soldiers faster.

“Auditory enhancement for communication and protection.”

Hearing is critical on the battlefield, and currently soldiers wear noise-cancelling ear protection to screen out the din of weapons. The ear protection is relatively bulky though, and a much smaller, compact headset would be very useful.

“Direct neural enhancement of the human brain for two-way data transfer.”

This is the big one. Telepathy between human soldiers would be revolutionary, as the paper writes, allowing soldiers to instantly share information across the battlefield without the use of communications devices.

Technological feasibility may not be the only issue that determines when and how soldiers receive such gear. Super sight, super muscles, super hearing, and telepathy could have profound implications on the broader society, implications that could slow down or speed up the military’s adoption. Telepathy, the holy grail of interpersonal communications for centuries, also will probably not come cheap, initially restricting its use to special operations forces.
