LS3, the Legged Squad Support System is a four-legged robot designed to travel 20 miles on rough terrain carrying 400 lbs of load. The video shows LS3 in field testing at Twentynine Palms, CA. Testing includes rough-terrain mobility, endurance, visually guided following, GPS guided maneuver, and overall reliability. Additional testing is taking place at various locations around the country, including Fort Picket VA, Fort Benning GA, Fort Devens MA and others.
