Us War Robot China, America’s robot army will become the era of China, Biden made a big plan, will the war turn in Taiwan war? – us military plans to unleash thousands of autonomous war robots over two years to war with china in taiwan

Gold Coast (Australia): America has made a big announcement amidst tension with China. US Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks announced on Monday that her country’s military plans to start using thousands of autonomous weapon systems over the next two years in response to China’s growing might. America’s Replicator initiative aims to coordinate with defense and other technology companies to mass-produce affordable systems for all branches of the military. Military systems capable of independent operation at various levels have become increasingly common over the past decade or so. But the US announcement makes it clear that the future of warfare has changed: the era of combat robots has arrived.

It’s time to turn ideas into reality In the past decade, there has been a significant development of advanced robotic systems for military purposes. Many of these are based on modified commercial technology, which itself has become more efficient, cheaper and more widely available. More recently, attention has shifted to experiments on how best to use them in combat. Russia’s war in Ukraine has shown that the technology is ready for deployment in the real world. The robotic aerial vehicle has been widely used to detect and attack armored vehicles and artillery. Attack drones of the Ukrainian Navy have crippled Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, preventing its warships from moving out of port.

Military robots were once thought of but now their time has come. Robots Everywhere In her speech, US Deputy Defense Secretary Hicks underlined the urgent need to change the way we fight wars. He announced that the new Replicator program will introduce hundreds of thousands of responsible autonomous systems across multiple domains within the next 18 to 24 months. ‘Autonomous’ refers to a robot that can carry out complex military operations without human intervention. ‘Attributable’ means that the robot is cheap enough to afford to risk and lose it on a high-priority mission. Such a robot is not designed to be fully degradable (disposable), but it would be very economical so they could be bought in large numbers and offset war losses.

‘Multi-domain’ refers to the deployment of robots on land, at sea, in the air and in space. In short, robots can be deployed everywhere for all kinds of tasks. Robot mission For the US military, Russia is a ‘serious threat’, but China is also an ‘ever-increasing challenge’ against which it has to strengthen its military capabilities. The People’s Liberation Army of China has more men, more tanks, more ships, more missiles, etc. The US may have better quality equipment, but China wins in numbers. The Replicator program will now rapidly build thousands of ‘attributable autonomous systems’, vitally helping the US win major future wars.

China’s stand on Taiwan is expected to turn into a conflict of tension. In such a situation, robots can be decisive for America in suffocating any major Chinese invasion. Replicator is also looking forward, and aims to institutionalize mass production of robots for the long term. a brave new world? A major concern about autonomous systems is whether their use can be consistent with the laws of armed conflict. Optimists argue that robots can be carefully programmed to follow the rules because they can follow the rules better than humans in the heat and confusion of a fight.

Pessimists object, saying that not all situations can be predicted and that robots may miscalculate and attack, which should not happen. It is important. In earlier autonomous military systems, both the Phalanx close-in point defense gun and the Patriot surface-to-air missile performed poorly to the point of disadvantage. A Global Change The US may be the first country to deploy autonomous systems in large numbers, but others will be far behind. China cannot be underestimated, which has expertise in artificial intelligence and combat drone production. Much of the technology for autonomous military drones has been developed for civilian purposes, so it is widely available and relatively inexpensive.

Autonomous military systems are not just for the superpowers, but may soon be fielded by many medium and small powers as well. There are reports of autonomous weapon systems being deployed by Libya and Israel and some other countries. Turkish-made drones have proved vital in the Ukraine war. Australia is also deeply interested in the possibilities of autonomous weapons. The Australian Defense Force is today building the MQ-28 Ghostbat autonomous fast jet air vehicle, armored vehicles with robotic systems, robotic logistics trucks and robotic submarines. He is using the Bluebottle robotic sailboat for maritime border surveillance in the Timor Sea. An Australian company, SYPAQ, is sending several of its cheap, cardboard drones to Ukraine.
