A Jetpack Designed To Help Soldiers Move Faster While Carrying More Weight
Scientists during a research at Arizona State University (ASU) have unveiled this jetpack with the valuable assistance from the Defence Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA).
The latest jetpack was aimed at soldiers on the ground who must venture in and out of conditions abruptly.
Thomas Sugar, professor at the university’s Human Machine Integration Laboratory, and his research team were actually dedicated towards robotic systems that is capable of assisting amputees when DARPA requested that if they could put club few pieces together that would ensure able-bodied individuals to scale distance faster.
The jetpack, ‘4MM, or 4 Minute Mile’, resides on the lower back of the user with dual thrusters having maximum force back and down so as to furnish forward push as well as a little lift. Jason Kerestes, who graduated in engineering at ASU, was included into the project as he represents a local welding business as well. His dedicated research work resulted in the 4MM.
“Our overall goal is to get any soldier or any test subject at the time to be able to run a four-minute mile,” Kerestes explained during a promotional video detailing about the project. “These devices can really help soldiers to not only accomplish their goals and succeed in their missions, but potentially save human lives as well.”
With more than a mile to cover, the test subject spanned a total of five minutes and 20 seconds usually but managed 5 minutes and 2 seconds with the jetpack on, without exerting as much effort.http://www.aartiinformatics.com/technology/a-jetpack-designed-to-help-soldiers-move-faster/http://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/jetpack.jpghttp://www.aartiinformatics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/jetpack-300x300.jpgTECHNOLOGYcool new technology,cool technology,future technology,jet packs,jetpack,jetpacks,new technology,new technology gadgets,newest technology,technology,technology newsAmerican research scientists have introduced a new jetpack that can help users to cover a four-minute mile distance by increasing speed and agility.
