Revealed robot dogs fitted with rifles for the US military

At the annual meeting of the American Army Association, held in Washington DC from 11-13, Ghost Robotics introduced a line of robot dogs equipped with specialized rifles of SWORD International.

The robot dog is a new version of the four-legged robot line called Q-UGV of Ghost Robotics (based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). Currently, the US Air Force is testing an unarmed version of this robot for patrols at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida.

 

At the conference in Washington DC, the new robot dog was fitted with a rifle on its back, according to New Scientist. This is a special gun manufactured by SWORD International (based in Nevada), using 6.5 mm Creedmoor ammunition.

 

Creedmoor is a relatively new ammunition, first produced in the 2000s, and can be loaded into a 7.62 mm NATO cartridge. With this ammunition, Ghost Robotics guarantees that the gun can shoot accurately at a distance of 1,200 m, and is equipped with a camera that works day and night.

 

Besides, the rifle used is a special purpose unmanned gun (SPUR). The user can reload and fire the SPUR from a distance.

The decision to arm robotic dogs has allowed Ghost Robotics to overtake rival Boston Dynamics , which makes four-legged robots but has pledged not to weaponize its products.

The appearance of a new version of the robot dog has once again raised concerns about the ethical aspects of using them in practice.

 

“This behavior has crossed ethical, legal and technical boundaries, pushing us into a darker and more dangerous world,”

said Professor Toby Walsh of the University of New South Wales (Australia) on Futurism. ).

He worries that these weapons could fall into the hands of terrorists and become a tool to threaten the world.

Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane

According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.

Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.

The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.

United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.

Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.

According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.

It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.
