Exoskeletons for Human Performance Augmentation

The goal of the human performance augmentation effort is to increase the speed, strength, and endurance of soldiers in combat environments. The program will develop technologies, such as actively controlled exoskeletons, to enable soldiers to handle more firepower, wear more ballistic protection, and carry more ammunition and supplies, etc., in order to increase the lethality and survivability of ground forces in all combat environments (Fig. E.9).
