Soldiers soon to see robotic mules and tougher bomb bots in the field | Army Times

Soldiers will soon be seeing two new robots out in the field designed to help carry heavy loads and assist bomb technicians. The Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport has been in the selection process since 2017 and is deigned to carry 1,000 pounds for 60 miles within 72 hours. SMET can also produce up to 3kw of power to help recharge batteries and run equipment. The Common Robotic System – Heavy, or CRS-H, is designed to assist Explosive Ordnance Disposal soldiers by giving them a farther stand-off distance and provide them with more tools for detection, access, and disposal.
