Figure E.9. Incorporate and advance technologies to remove the burden of mass (120+ lbs.) and increase the soldier's strength, speed, endurance, and overall combat effectiveness.

Two of the critical issues for exoskeletons are power for actuation and biomechanical control integration. The program is developing efficient, integrated power and actuation components to generate systems with duration that are operationally significant. Hence, researchers are exploring the use of chemical/hydrocarbon fuels (with very high energy density and specific energy) for energy conversion and mechanical actuation (as opposed to other energy storage media such as batteries or compressed air). An understanding of biomechanics, feedback, and control are also critical to building an integrated system that provides seamless compatibility with human kinetics, especially under battlefield stress.
