Marines Test New Robotic Mule
Marines test the capabilities of the Legged Squad Support System for the first time. Marines with 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, put the system through its paces at Fort Devens, Mass., Nov. 5-7, 2013. The system, or LS3, is designed to reduce the load Marines carry in combat, can reach speeds of 6 mph and carry up to 400 pounds. The LS3 was created by Boston Dynamics and is currently being tested by the Marine Corps. (U.S. Marine Corps video by Sgt. Mike V. Walters)
