In the new modern battlespace with the use of thermal imaging and infrared devices it will be difficult for humans to use the element of surprise on their enemies as they would be easily detected. Both sides of the conflict will indeed have this capability using a multitude of devices such as goggles, scopes and night vision apparatus.In the new battlespace it therefore makes sense to use robotic soldiers and war fighting devices rather than humans to defeat its enemy.
Robots will not have human heat signatures and can be set at the temperature of your choice for instance the ambient air temperature makes sense.Robotic weapons rather than human combat will become the new paradigm. If we as a nation expect to protect and defend the sanctity of human life, democracy and freedom and promote liberty the world over we must consider these facts as we press onward and upward to the future.
The forward progress of mankind is at stake, along with all we are and all we have already built in our great civilization and those, which are well on their way in emerging from the fray. We must not allow ego to stand in our path of the future fighting force initiatives, robotic soldiers and robotic weapons on the ground make as much or more sense than the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles we now rely upon in the air for surveillance and information in the battlespace. Please consider this in 2006..
