DARPA readies Big Dog for the battlefield

Soldiers in current operations carry upwards of 50 lbs of equipment, and in some cases over 100 lbs, for long distances and in terrain not always accessible by wheeled platforms that support infantry. As a result, the soldier's combat effectiveness can be compromised. The LS3 program will design and develop prototypes capable of carrying 400 lbs of payload for 20 miles in 24 hours, negotiating terrain and at endurance levels expected of typical squad maneuvers.
