ABSTRACT
The article explores the military application of the powered exoskeleton. The Hardiman powered exoskeleton developed by General Electric, which allows wearers to lift weights normally beyond their natural capability. The two technological developments that aided the development of powered exoskeletons include the reduction in the size of microprocessors and improvements in the sensitivity of bioelectrical sensors. Information is presented on several powered exoskeletons, including the Hulc from Lockheed Martin.
