Boston Dynamics Inc. has been contracted by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),  the agency responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military, in a deal worth $10.9 million.   The DoD announced Tuesday that “The robotic platforms will be humanoid, consisting of two legs, a torso,  two arms with hands, a sensor head and on board computing.”   DARPA’s website says that the robots will help “conduct humanitarian, disaster relief and related operations.”   “The plan identifies requirements to extend aid to victims of natural or man-made disasters and conduct evacuation operations.”  reads the brief, first released in April as part of DARPA’s ‘Robotics Challenge’.   The robots will operate with “supervised autonomy”, according to DARPA, and will be able to act intelligently by themselves, making their own decisions if and when direct supervision is not possible.   The Pentagon also envisions that the robots will be able to use basic and diverse “tools”.   “The primary technical goal of the DRC is to develop ground robots capable of executing complex tasks in dangerous,  degraded, human-engineered environments. Competitors in the DRC are expected to focus on robots that can use standard tools and equipment commonly available in human environments, ranging from hand tools to vehicles, with an emphasis on adaptability to tools with diverse specifications.” reads the original brief.   The robots are set to be completed by Aug. 9, 2014, according to the contract.   Boston Dynamics has enjoyed a long working relationship with DARPA, during which time it has developed the  rather frightening BigDog. This hydraulic quadruped robot can carry up to 340lb load, meaning it can be effectively  weaponised, and recovers its balance even after sliding on ice and snow:

So in 2 years  eh  and in the mean time  more drones and these

    The Conspiracy of an Empire: A Letter to Those that Serve the System:
    August 27, 2012 in Activism

    by Shawn Helton

    This is a letter to those who serve the system. You need to accept that our country has been taken
    over by a financial and scientific dictatorship. Those in charge of our wealth and resources have
    pledged to a dark empire. We need reject the predatory and illegitimate war making used to crush liberty.
    As the world is in decline, you will have to make a choice between freedom and tyranny. Future generations
    depend on it. Dissent is still the highest form of patriotism. Will you speak up for your country

    By working for this system you are agreeing to the reformation of the United States Constitution and are
    condoning the actions of a corrupt, government, devoid of morals that has been taken over at the highest levels by global criminals.

    Under this current administration we’ve descended into total authoritarianism having extending the Patriot Act,
    passing the NDAA, which in it’s pure description is the indefinite detention of American citizens, thus, stripping us
    of our constitutional rights without evidence of any crime. Just recently, an army manual was leaked describing
    plans for internment resettlement operations or re-education camps here in the U.S., during the event of
    “military or civil conflict”, or if we had a “natural or man-made disaster”. As free people we should be extremely
    concerned and we have been warned.

    It appears to me that many people are suffering from DIM-ITUDE by IGNORANTLY “buying into” COMPLETE & UTTER BS without
    seeing a shred of credible evidence, blindly REACT instead of thinking & because of their BIASES & PREJUDICES they
    continually forward PROPAGANDA & DISINFORMATION without attempting to verify & research things.

    DIM-ITUDE – A chronic psychological state found in people that consistently get things WRONG because they allow
    their BIASES & PREJUDICES to replace facts & logic. People with this condition are often DIM-WITS with an ATTITUDE
    born of IGNORANCE that will often RANT & RAVE about things that are provably UNTRUE & will often attack anyone
    that addresses the basis of their DELUSIONS.

    putin on the road to psychotronic war

    Daniel Salgar Antolinez

    (El Spectador, Colombia, http://www.elespectador.com/impreso/internacional/articulo-364160-putin-guerra-psicotronica)

    Translated by Rudy Andria

    Weapons that attack by waves and leave no traces will decide armed conflicts after the nuclear age.

    The development of psychotronic weapons – wave devices controlling thoughts, feelings and behavior of human beings – has remained hidden for over five decades. There is a disproportionate amount of speculative information about those weapons and many think it is pure science fiction. But recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin endorsed his psychotronic weapons program, suggesting that their development has not been stopped and that Russia is preparing for future wars. It’s hard to believe that the other powers do not.

    Together with his Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov http://en.rian.ru/mlitary_news/20120322/172332421.html Putin said that “the military capability of a country in space or information countermeasures, especially in cyberspace, will play a great, if not decisive, role in determining the nature of an armed conflict. In the more distant future, weapons systems based on new principles (beam, geophysical, wave, genetic, psychophysical and other technology) will be developed. All this will, in addition to nuclear weapons, provide entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals”.

    The president also said that these weapons will be comparable in effect to nuclear weapons, but “will be more acceptable in terms of military and political ideology” http://premier.gov.ru/eng/events/news/18185/. Serdyukov added that Moscow will create an advanced military research agency similar to the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The announcement was made in the proposals for weapons to be included in the next military investment program of the Russian state. Putin had earlier announced that it would spend U.S. $ 710,000 billion in military development for a decade (AFP) http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5gGpNuT4FYJU6F5jf4Xp6JD2sCBGA?docId=CNG.a1230254c7eeec91d8339b7f5b2953b1.5c1 .

    The scientific curiosity of Russians on this technology is not new. Mojmir Babacek, a Czech author known for his research into psychotronic weapons and founder of the International Movement Against Manipulation of Central Nervous System, tells El Spectador that since 1920 Russia had began to investigate phenomena such as telepathy, telekinesis and clairvoyance, and there had been during the 60’s and 70’s a real arms race between Russia and the U.S. in this area. The goal was to find the physical phenomena that govern psychic phenomena. Russian scientists talked about torsion fields and the Americans about scalar fields. “The concepts differ substantially and sound like scientific mystifications, which supports the suspicions that physical principles of psychic phenomena were discovered, but the discoveries are hidden from the public.” says Babacek.

    John Hall, a biologist and physician who treats alleged victims of mind control and is the author of A New Breed: Satellite Terrorism in America, told El Spectador that psychotronic weapons send waves in the electromagnetic spectrum to the human nervous system to alter behavior, thought, perception, and the musculoskeletal system. ” Victims see holograms, hear voices, have involuntary muscle movements and headaches, among others.”

    How would those weapons be used in the next war? “When you can use a system such as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), developed by the U.S. which largely increases the emitted energy absorbing additional energy in the ionosphere, you can target large areas on the Earth’s surface. By pulsing the radiation in frequencies that control the activity of human heart, one could kill entire armies stopping the heartbeat of soldiers”, replies Babacek http://mojmir.webuda.com/Means_of_Information_War_Threaten_Democracy_And_Mankind.

    Why did Putin say that these weapons would be more acceptable in the military and political ideology? For the Czech author, those who would use them might be less “culpable” because the use of psychotronic weapons leaves no radioactivity, as it happens with nuclear weapons. Furthermore, if the technology is not used to kill enemies, but to make them “incapable of fighting, by overheating their bodies, knocking them unconscious, making them sick by causing them pain in their internal organs or causing them epileptic seizures, the powers which would use that technology may argue that they are conducting a humane warfare. But the use of this technology would turn them into totalitarian powers of a new type and the concept of human freedom would disappear from history”.

    Another aspect of a psychotronic war, says Hall, is that there is no known protection that works consistently against these weapons. “The obvious goal is to control a global population without using violence.” At least not violence in the form of bullets, missiles and bombs, as we know it nowadays.

    Governments tend to deny that they are in possession of psychotronic weapons claiming only that those weapons are under development. Babacek, among a vast number of authors, scientists, researchers and bloggers, says that from the scientific literature and information leaks, the existence of such weapons is obvious, though it is impossible to prove whether they have been used.

    In the U.S. a project Pandora of the Walter Reed Army Institute and DARPA, with its subprogram Bizarre was published. Richard Cesaro, director of Darpa for the project Pandora, stated the following about his goals: “To achieve a technological leap in the warfare we must go beyond bombs and gain control of the enemies’ minds.” The HAARP program is located in Alaska and was funded by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and DARPA. Although its official purpose is to study the ionosphere and to further improve the radio communications and surveillance systems, many blame this project for using its energy to cause natural disasters.

    Published in the USA was as well an investigation conducted by the U.S. navy and the Washington Post has published a project of the U.S. Air Force, without naming it. The newspaper said “scientists were able to transmit phrases into the heads of human subjects, albeit with marginal intelligibility” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/10/AR2007011001399_5.html.

    In the Soviet Union, says Babacek, research was conducted by the Center Vent, funded and controlled by the Soviet Defense Department. The center directed work in 26 other Soviet laboratories http://mojmir.webuda.com/Psychoeletronic_threat_to_democracy_The_Secret_Arms_Race.

    There are countless cases in which psychotronic weapons have allegedly been used. According to Russian newspapers, there was an attempt to use “psychotronic generators” during the coup against Gorbachev, but their application failed. The president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, was an alleged victim of a microwave electron bombardment while besieged in the Brazilian Embassy in Honduras. The son of Saddam Hussein wrote in an Iraqi newspaper that Americans tried to form clots in his father’s blood by electromagnetic radiation. According to the U.S. Army newspaper, Israel has used this technology against Palestinians.

    Alexander von Hahn, an independent researcher, told El Spectador that there is no evidence that these weapons have been used recently in Russia. However, Von Hahn spoke with the lawyer, former student of the Russian Academy of Border Defense and opposition leader, Yury Shulipa, who said that on” December 21 and December 25, 2011, the days of the first and second anti-Putin demonstrations in Moscow, the police interrupted the functioning of the cell phones of those who participated in the peaceful march”. Shulipa said he could not “exclude use of

    psychotropic or psychotronic weapons, at least on an experimental basis” against protesters or against opposition leaders individually, although it is impossible to obtain factual evidence that this actually happened.

    None of the above cases has been sufficiently proved. One of the biggest challenges is that psychotronic weapons leave no evidence to prove somebody guilty. Cheryl Welsh, Mind Justice portal director, told this newspaper that the fact that the weapons “are operated by remote control and do not leave a trail of bullet or evidence” makes their use too complicated to be detected. This also means that those who claim to be victims of these technologies are usually classified as mentally ill. Hall says that most victims are coming from the USA and that the advances of this country in the area are considerable. “The most puzzling is the ability to communicate with the victims through synthetic telepathy that only they can hear. It is impossible for them (the victims) to convince anybody of the torture they are subjected to. Obviously, the weapons system is designed to mimic symptoms of common diseases, schizophrenia or hallucinations.”

    Though Putin’ psychotronic weapons are designed for the more distant future, the international community has debated the issue for several decades. In 1979 the Soviet Union representative on the Committee on Disarmament of the UN warned in an article that the harmful effects of RF radiation on organs like the heart, brain and central nervous system should be established as a reality. That same year the Soviet Union sent the Committee on Disarmament a list that included as potential weapons of mass destruction radiological weapons (using radioactive materials), the particle beam, the infrasound weapons, which use acoustic radiation, and electromagnetic radiation, which operates with radio frequencies.

    Welsh said that the international community has tried to agree on legislation to regulate the use and production of psychotronic weapons and “although Western countries agree that the issue should be supervised, they have taken different perspectives and some claim that new developments by scientists must be treated individually since they have a potential use in the arms race.”

    In 1999 the European Parliament called “for an international convention and global ban on all research and development , whether civilian or military , which seeks to apply knowledge of the chemical, electrical, sound vibration or other functioning of the human brain to the development of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings, including a ban on any actual or possible deployment of such systems“ http://www.europarl.europa.eu/RegData/etudes/etudes/join/2000/168394/DG-4-JOIN_ET%282000%29168394%28PAR01%29_EN.pdf.

    So far, however, there is no global consensus and Russia is the first to officially announce that it prepares its psychotronic arsenal for the future.

    military robots will be able to pick out human targets on the battlefield and decide on their own whether to go for the kill. A US Air Force report predicted two years ago that ”by 2030 machine capabilities will have increased to the point that humans will have become the weakest component in a wide array of systems”. A 2011 US Defence Department road map for ground-based weapons states: ”There is an ongoing push to increase autonomy, with a current goal of ‘supervised autonomy’, but with an ultimate goal of full autonomy.”

    Robots will soon be helping staff and patients at Royal North Shore Hospital
    NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner announced on Sunday RNS would become the first hospital in Australia to use the robots – automated guided vehicles – to transport food, linen and other supplies around its new acute services building.

    Every day the AGVs will deliver and collect about 3600 meal trays, hundreds of clean and dirty linen items and other waste from around the hospital.

    “Not only will they assist staff to do their jobs more efficiently without the risk of painful injuries, they will reduce accidental cross-contamination of goods during transport,” Ms Skinner said.

    LOVE them or hate them, robots are destined to play a big role as this century unfolds. And it’s not just science fiction writers saying that. It’s the scientists, who are grounding their predictions in the reality of what robots can already do.

    The use of robots in industry and manufacturing is already commonplace, while in policing, they’re used to search buildings, detect weapons, defuse bombs and perform other tasks humans find dull, dirty or dangerous.

    Robots entered contaminated areas after Japan’s earthquake and tsunami in 2011. And in the same year, a US marine robot handler revealed that more than 2000 robots had fought alongside ground troops in Afghanistan.

    By 2040, says Noel Sharkey, professor of artificial intelligence and robotics at Britain’s Sheffield University, robots will act as bouncers and security guards, handle crowd control at protests, strikes and sporting events and patrol nightclub areas for drunks.

    In Japan, he says, a robot is being tested that does the ironing.

    Education, aged-care and healthcare are areas in which Oppermann says robots will thrive.

    Two main types of robots have evolved. “Telepresence robots”, which have no initiative of their own and are remotely operated, including via the internet, and “autonomous” robots, which make sense of the world around them and use artificial-intelligence algorithms to react to it.

    Adding to this taxonomy are robots that look eerily like humans – “Actroid” robots that have been under development in Japan, the world leader in prosthetics, for a decade.

    If the job were relatively low skilled, such as just reading statistics, then it’s something a robot could substantially do completely autonomously.”

    Robots could do the cleaning in hospitals, take meal orders and deliver them.

    Who knows? Perhaps we can even teach them to walk the dog.
