SARCOS Guardian XO full-body Powered Exoskeleton to be Tested by U.S. Marines

According to SARCOS, the exoskeleton amplifies operator strength by a factor of up to 20x and enables the operator to lift payloads up to 200lb. The suit also enables smoother motion by compensating for inertia at levels of up to 100 lbs. per arm or 50 lbs. per arm when lifting at full extension.  Hot-swappable onboard batteries offer near-continuous operation.  The XO® Pod docking station facilitates battery charging as well as easy donning and doffing.  The XO also supports modular and user-selectable end effectors.
