Four years ago, a scene from a futuristic science fiction movie played out in real life during a U.S. Air Force training exercise, creating quite a stir. It was a scene of robotic military dogs sprinting from a U.S. Air Force cargo plane onto a runway in the Mojave Desert. These robotic dogs, airlifted with soldiers on a C-130 cargo plane, were deployed to scout for potential threats to the soldiers in case of an emergency.

At the time, U.S. broadcaster CNN reported that these robotic dogs were part of the U.S. military’s Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). ABMS utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) and rapid data analysis to detect and respond to threats to U.S. military assets in space and potential attacks on the U.S. mainland via missiles and other means.

The ABMS training involved all branches of the U.S. military, including the Coast Guard, and dozens of industrial teams from 30 locations nationwide. One of these locations was Nellis Air Force Base in western Nevada, where the robotic dogs were deployed. CNN reported that robotic dogs’ participation in U.S. Air Force training provides a glimpse into the potential future of the battlefield.

CNN reported that these robotic dogs could become an essential component of the U.S. military’s “kill chain” in the future. This chain involves real-time detection of enemy missiles followed by retaliation. The Air Force 621st Contingency Response Wing, known by the nickname “The Devil Raiders,” is reportedly testing these robotic dogs.
