Technology firm Ghost Robotics highlighted the capabilities of a new version of its quadrupedal unmanned ground vehicles (Q-UGVs) at AUSA 2021. The Q-UGV, also called “robot dog,” was equipped with a 6.5-millimeter Creedmoor assault rifle.
The latest variant, a collaboration between Ghost Robotics and SWORD International, can be instructed remotely to chamber the first round from an unloaded state, and then clear it and safe the gun. The weapon, which is AI equipped, is capable of hitting targets at a distance of 1,200 meters (0.7 miles). The robot also provides impressive stabilization to the rifles because of its quadrupedal design.
The weapon is equipped with a sound suppressor, thus making it more difficult for enemy soldiers to determine the direction from where the attack is coming from.
