   Maybe testing new equipment. Soldiers that have a shield carrying role would like some sort of gear that will make their job easier, as this is rather heavy ballistic shield. In one of interview specialist noted that he can actively work with it for 1-1.5 hours and up to 3 hours in passive "mode" (when searching, blocking, covering certain sector, etc.)

Yes, let's strap on four pounds of junk that the soldier will break in 5 seconds and he won't be able to get rid of because he's "accountable" for it.

For serious; I guess it depends how well it works?

 

My worry is that it would be an overweight, high maintenance shooting stick, but I'd love to see someone independent test it fully.

It works quite well, and isn't a new concept. The problem is that it's likely that in order to be durable enough to survive rough treatment from Private Snuffy, it would be too heavy to be worth it. Maybe I am underestimating the strength-to-weight of carbon fiber, though. I wouldn't be the first to do so.

EDIT: I asked @Oedipus Wreckx-n-Effect (who knows bikes pretty good - fairly analogous devices, those) what he thought a production, toughened version of that arm would weigh if made largely of carbon fiber. He guessed 2-3 pounds. So maybe there is something to it, after all.

The Marines need to fast track this, they're gonna be in the hurt locker when everyone gets issued a 12lb M27 IAR.

I think you could build it that light. Whether they did or not is a different story. If this is just a prototype maybe more weight is ok for now.

 

One step towards exosuits!
