The Iron Man suit may soon become a familiar weapon in the U.S. Army. The fact is that the development of such a suit for the military has been ordered in the USA. Apart from it, there will be made an attempt to recreate the protagonist’s protection from the popular game project Crysis.
The new protection system will be called TALOS (Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit) and will include a heavy-duty exoskeleton and “liquid armor”, developed by the experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The armor will have the property to change its state by almost instantaneous changes in the characteristics of the electromagnetic field. Thanks to it, the fighter in such a suit should not be afraid of bullets and the impact of high and low temperatures. The costume will provide a soldier with oxygen and will maintain normal body temperature.
It is assumed that the experimental model of the TALOS suit will be built no later than in a year, and its improved version will be available in 2016.
