The military technology of the future is already used by the vast majority of the armies in developed countries, some more than others, all this military technology of the future has had its origins in science fiction. But it is especially in these last 70 years, that development of this military technology of the future has evolved more than in the entire history of humanity. This stimulating sensation of “progression” has left us scientists and engineers to reach (or trying to achieve) the following levels of sophistication in military systems.
So, without further ADO, let’s see what this technology military of the future which currently exist, but that very few have heard. This military technology of the future, increasingly closes the gap between reality and what may seem like science fiction.
1 Bullet that can change its course in flight
Military technology that does not know that there was exactly Bullet. Since this seems to be taken out of any Sci-Fi series, DARPA has created its futuristic version of a bullet that unlike normal bullet, is not totally dependent on the physical skill of bending of the person who is firing the weapon.
But on the contrary, it is the self-guided nature of the same bullet that does the job, allowing the projectile can modify or change its course after having been fired from a gun. Named as ACCURATE, these advanced small-caliber bullets are intended to always hit the target no matter the shooting distance.
The EXACT program aims to revolutionize the accuracy of the rifle and scope through the development of the first guided small-caliber bullet.
EXACT 50 caliber bullet and optical sight technology, expected to extend largely the range of day and night connection to existing systems for snipers.
The system combines a maneuverable bullet and a guidance system in real time to track that the projectile is directed at the goal, allowing the bullet to change its path during the flight, offsetting any unexpected factor that can move it away from its goal.
2 The Plasma that can turn the waves produced by an explosion
Military technology than not know existed plasma intended as a force field, this incredible patent of Boeing (already submitted to United States Patent and TrademarkOffice) carries a layer of hot ionized air which can protect a soldier from the shockwaves emanating from an explosion. In other words, the shield of plasma is not designed to stop an explosion of physical objects as fragments of shrapnel, but it has developed to deflect the shock waves which are not protected electronic systems for military vehicles today in day.
The question naturally arises – how will operate this system apparently futuristic? As well, the process will begin with specialized sensors installed in the vehicle to detect the magnitude of the explosion. These sensors, at the same time will be connected to a generator of bow that could shoot laser pulses of high intensity in the direction of the explosion.
This would lead to the ionization of the air in the Middle, creating a field of laser-induced plasma. From the physical point of view, both the density and the temperature of this plasma field will be different from the rest of thearea, transforming it into a shield of to divert the incoming waves of shock.
3 Camouflage squid inspired, which can make invisible soldiers
Military technology than not know that there was calamarLos squid change color with the help of a cells called iridocitos, which are present in its outer skin. These cells are composed of platelets, which in turn contain a special type of protein, known as reflection. Separation and the thickness of the platelets do to change shape in the light is reflected on the skin of cephalopods. This camouflage makes the animal invisible to larger predators, as well as their possible prey. The use of this mechanism as a basis for the research, scientists at the University of California, Irvine, have developed what they call ‘stickers’ invisibility. According to the team, led by Dr. Alon Gorodetsky, futuristic technology might help the soldiers to avoid detection, even by infrared cameras.
Gorodetsky said: the soldiers wear uniforms with green and Brown camouflage patterns to be integrated in the foliage during the day, but under low light conditions and at night, are still vulnerable to infrared detection. We have developed stickers for use as a thin and flexible of camouflage, which has the potential to assume a model that fits better to the reflectance in the infrared range in order to hide them from the visualization of infrared active.
4 Aquatic Drones that can repel attacks enemies
Military technology than not know existed boats drones. This drones, better known as unmanned, surface ships they were tested in Virginia’s James River. Formations belong to the progressive tactics, with robotic vehicles to make their movements in a coordinated way. In fact, (supervised by the Office of Naval Research USA) test phase began with these aquatic drones to protect a main nave. However, the defensive position gave way quickly to an aggressive stance when drones broke its training of escort in the presence of a potential threat.
This sudden and impressive change in the tactical planning is managed entirely by the computing power of the robots. According to the United States Navy, this was the result of the architecture of control for Robotic Agent command and detection system that is used for navigation of robot boats. And beyond just driving, the collective system was crucial to the coordination of different aquatic vehicles, which, not only improved cooperation between them but also endowed them with knowledge about the situation in the process.
5 Acyborg remote controlled insect
Technologies military that no, you know that there was cyborg beetle Investigadors of the University of California, Berkeley and the University of technology of Nanyang (NTU) in Singapore, have worked together to give birth to what may be a unique solution of espionage – a beetle remote control. To do this, the scientists devised a special electronic configuration, which was tied to the insects as a small backpack.This small configuration is powered by a micro 3.9 volt lithium battery, and has a micro controller and a microphone (wireless) built-in transmitter and receiver, along with six electrodes that were connected to optical lobes of the beetles and their flight muscles.
As a result of this tiny device, the scientists were able to send signals, which could stimulate the muscles of the beetle.
In other words, this led to the controller of the flight pattern of the organism – the directives on take off, left or right, or even ordering that bug just hangs in the air. And now, of course, the question – what can be the purpose of a cyborg insect? Originally, researchers made use of the electronic system to study the biophysical features of beetle flight muscles. However, the futuristic techniques (improved by thermal sensors) can be used for search and rescue missions in areas of disasters, such as earthquakes. And, if we stetch the potentiality to the military sphere, it could also be used for the purpose of military intelligence.
