Product Overview

Sixty years in development, the U.S. military is on the verge of sending robots into combat. This informative DVD takes a rare in-depth look at the latest breakthroughs in autonomous weapons systems.

As Gordon Johnson of the Joint Forces Command at the Pentagon said, "They don't get hungry. They're not afraid. They don't forget their orders. They don't care if the guy next to them has just been shot. Will they do a better job than humans? Yes."

The U.S. military has made a major commitment to deploying and developing robots for use on the battlefield--from highly successful bomb disposal robots to unmanned aerial vehicles. The use of robots in warfare fits into some of the basic tenets of American fighting: to reduce manpower with material and to kill the enemy either at a distance or with a surrogate soldier. In the future, the Pentagon hopes to have a ratio of 4-6 robots to every human soldier.

This fascinating program previews the latest armed robot - with aim so accurate and deadly that it virtually never misses its target - and looks at the difficulties of making military vehicles driverless.

The future is now. Get a load of the hottest unmanned weapons tech in Robo-Warriors.
