The US army has been investing billions of dollars in the development of a next-generation robot, which could eventually replace soldiers on the battlefield.
The Army Research Office said on Monday that it had secured a $1.4 billion contract for the RIM-1B, which it said would allow the robot to be more agile and versatile.
The robot is expected to be ready for service by 2025.
The RIM robot, developed by RIM, was unveiled during a conference at the Pentagon, where a senior Army official said the R2-A2, a prototype of which was first shown off in 2017, had been designed to be able to do everything from cleaning a vehicle to delivering medical care.
The US Army’s robot arm, called the Arm, is used to test and develop new technologies that have the potential to transform warfare.
The RIM R2A2 was first seen at the 2017 Army Robotics Expo in Orlando.
The Army is investing in the robot in order to make it more capable, as well as improving its software and operating system.
It will be able operate autonomously and with limited human intervention.
This robot will not be used for combat, but is intended to be used as a logistics support robot and to support soldiers in combat zones.
The Pentagon has also awarded the company a $4.8 million contract for development of the RUM-2, an advanced combat-specific intelligence and control system.
RIM has already announced a $400 million contract with the US Army for a “robotic logistics vehicle”, which could be used to help troops deploy to new battlefields.
The RUM was originally designed to deliver medical supplies to troops on the front lines of a conflict, but could also be used in the field to help with logistics in the future.
Last year, the US government announced that it was funding a research program to develop a next generation robotic system that could help soldiers on-the-ground.
According to the Pentagon’s official account of defence, the research program was focused on the development and integration of a robot that could “deliver, store, transport and secure small items and supplies”.
