Interchange Laboratories has experimented with non-local effects of mental intention and control on the mind-machine interface system. This is a worthwhile research effort because it suggests that the U.S. Military may be presented with the option of deploying semi-autonomous AttacArmor in place of human troops.
Semi-autonomous AttacArmor units will require no food, water or sleep. They will be impervious to chemical and biological agents as well as extremes in temperature.
If the U.S. Military becomes completely mechanized with AttacArmor technologies, the result will be a significant drop in the overall cost of maintaining an effective military presence around the world. It will also mean that U.S. leaders and military commanders will be in a position to carry out military operations without having to consider the potential loss of U.S. troops.
Properly designed and deployed AttacArmor could affect urban combat in a way similar to how the army tank affected trench warfare in the early 20 th century. If this happens, the U.S. Military will be unbeatable even in urban terrain.
