    Declassified weapons

    All drones or robots in future war. It will only take a few evil Dems to cover a lot of Patriot killing while staying inside their bunkers.

    Drone dome by the Israeli’s is awesome.

    I was hoping for a bionic suit like Iron Man. No?

    Tech isnt everything. A lot of this stuff has been used in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. over the past few years. Still didn't bring a win for the USA. The enemy adapts. People on both sides are smart.

    Maybe you didn’t pay attention to the Azerbaijani war.

    After 911 in a small TX demo run doper town I built whats known today as a microwave crowd control weapon, out
    of 1990's 220 volt Litton microwave parts attached to a 3' satellite dish...Only used it on friday night's knockin
    bass-fart-doper-parade-cars dead at a known dope dealin corner...it worked great...the local hoodlums thought the place
    had became haunted and the doper traffic was stopped dead

    Smart weapons are old news, theres been Smart mines for 20 years. Basically they communicate with each other over the whole minefield, and instead of going off the first time somone steps on or gets near, they wait till you or your coloumn of troops or vehicles have walked intothe middle and then all detonate together.

    Theres now drones the size of bees that stream full 1080 HD and sound. And not even bees, theres drone cockroaches as well.


    The real danger is when people start building autonomous robot AI killing machines, as per Terminator. Lethal, largely autonomous weaponry isn’t entirely new: A handful of such systems have been deployed for decades, though only in limited, defensive roles, such as shooting down missiles hurtling toward ships. But with the development of AI-infused systems, the military is now on the verge of fielding machines capable of going on the offensive, picking out targets and taking lethal action without direct human input.

    The potential for the knobs falling off this big time is huge.


    Thers lots of issues, such as being able to predict or understand decisions made by artificially intelligent machines, what about computer instructions that are badly written or hacked, and about machines somehow straying outside the parameters created by their inventors. Some also argue that allowing weapons to decide to kill violates the ethical and legal norms governing the use of force on the battlefield since the horrors of World War II.

    AI has the potential to cause a disaster for Mankind. Also, such machines are increasing the speed of battle. Earlier this year, for example, researchers at Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore, focused a computer network on a data set of 1.2 million images; the computer then tried to identify all the pictured objects in just 90 seconds, or 0.000075 seconds an image. The outcome wasn’t perfect, or even close: At that incredible speed, the system identified objects correctly only 58 percent of the time, a rate that would be catastrophic on a battlefield. Nevertheless, the fact that machines can act, and react, much more quickly than we can is becoming more relevant as the pace of war speeds up. In the next decade, missiles will fly near the Earth at a mile per second, too fast for humans to make crucial defensive decisions on their own.

    Drones will attack in self-directed swarms, and specialized computers will assault one another at the speed of light. Humans might create the weapons and give them initial instructions, but after that, many military officials predict, they’ll only be in the way. “The problem is that when you’re dealing [with war] at machine speed, at what point is the human an impediment?” Robert Work, who served as the Pentagon’s No. 2 official in both the Obama and Trump administrations, said in an interview. “There’s no way a human can keep up, so you’ve got to delegate to machines.”

    Sea Mob is a swarm of armed patrol boats that can identify and attack like a troop of marines. In the Terminator movies’ dark portrayal, an artificially intelligent military system called SkyNet decides to wipe out humanity. One of the contractors working on Sea Mob has concluded his presentations about the program with a reference to the films: “We’re building SkyNet,” the presentation’s last PowerPoint slide reads, half in jest. But “our job is to make sure the robots don’t kill us.”
