Codename TALOS is an U.S. Special Operations Command prototype of a Iron Man like Exo Suit that is expected to be completed by 2018.
U.S. Special Operations Command is making progress researching, developing and testing a next-generation Iron Man-like suit designed to increase strength and protection and help keep valuable operators alive when they kick down doors and engage in combat, officials said.
The project, formally called Tactical Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, is aimed at providing special operators, such as Navy SEALs and Special Forces, with enhanced mobility and protection technologies, a Special Operations Command, or SOCOM, statement said.
"The ultimate purpose of the TALOS project is to produce a prototype in 2018. That prototype will then be evaluated for operational impact,” Lt. Cmdr. Matt Allen, SOCOM spokesman, told Scout Warrior...
The technologies currently being developed include body suit-type exoskeletons, strength and power-increasing systems and additional protection. A SOCOM statement said some of the potential technologies planned for TALOS research and development include advanced armor, command and control computers, power generators, and enhanced mobility exoskeletons.
I was never a big military person. In the sense that I never considered a career path through any branch of the military. That shit just ain't for me. But now, things have changed. If I could get to use a EXO suit then sign me up.
Ever since Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare came out, I have wanted one. What makes this even cooler is that their plan is to have specific operators using the EXO suit. Which basically means were gonna have Spartans from Halo running around our battlefields. Advanced armor, power generators, and enhanced mobility, all of that just sounds awesomely insane.
There's more, they are using a Liquid Piston HEHC which I can't exactly explain but I will try. Apparently it's the engine used in the EXO suit to recharge it's batteries. The reason why it is so important is because it is 30% smaller and lighter for spark ignition gas engines, and up to 75% smaller and lighter for compression ignition diesel engines. What I am guessing that means is they are have the same output as a engine which is larger than it.
