Military Robots Take Off Photos:Drone Time

The brawny combat robot, made by QinetiQ North America, a unit of the U.K.'sQinetiQ GroupPLC, rolls on tank-like treads. Military robots are a deadly serious business, and the gadgetry on display at the Unmanned Systems North America exhibition here underscores the shift by defense companies to selling combat by remote control. Over Japan, pilotless military surveillance planes recently inspected the damage from a nuclear disaster. The former Navy admiral said military researchers are starting to see the potential of unmanned underwater vehicles, or UUVs, to hunt for mines or other threats, much as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan accelerated the demand for bomb-disposal robots to search for suspected roadside bombs.
